Its smooth surface prevents dirt from getting stuck in, and its solidity makes it easy to scrub. For all these reasons, the tiles are easy to maintain.

As for the heart, it is often the one you prefer because it combines warmth and character. Côtéentretien, it’s another thing because the parquet floor from this point of view there too, a sacred character. Start by determining what type of parquet it is. If it is vitrified, cleaning is easier because it has been treated for that. Cleaning requires mopping with a suitable cleaner. For a waxed floor, we recommend a barely moist microfiber serpiliére. Same thing for oiled parquet. In any case, remember that the floor is afraid of water, so it is best to use easily removable brushes.

When one is lucky enough to own a stone floor (granite, marble, slate, etc.).At home, it is rare that one chooses to change it. Its natural appearance, its resistance and its cachet are practically unanimous. To maintain it properly, the stone floor should be washed regularly. If your cleaning is frequent, you can just scrub with a moist microfiber mop with hot water. For a more thorough cleaning, use water with a little black soap.

The maintenance of the carpet is partly responsible for its gradual disappearance in our homes. Its fragile appearance, especially when it is light in color, does not forgive when a stain appears. To maintain its carpet effectively, two commands must be followed: first a fairly regular dry cleaning, for example with bicarbonate, then a deeper cleaning once a year, ideally with a shampooer.

Ideal when it comes to repairing soil that is too damaged, seagrass is cheaper. It is imagined to hate water and yet it supports very well this kind of wet treatment. To clean it, it is enough to spend a wet mop regularly. It is even recommended to moisten it so that it does not become too brittle and thus ensure its longevity. Attention, this is not the case of sisal! The slightest stain of water or other liquid will result in a halo difficult to remove. To maintain your sisal, you need to make a shampoo powder about twice a year.

The plastic floor
The incredible diversity of patterns and styles of plastic floors has contributed significantly to the success of this type of flooring.As plastic floors are quicker to install and inexpensive, they are often an economical and modern solution for renovation. On the maintenance side, they are considered easy to live because they are treated at the base to retain no dust or liquids. However, we must be wary of appearances because the plastic floors are not so resistant as that and they do not support very well washing with large waters. To best treat its plastic floor, prefer a damp mop and soapy water.
