Flooring installation and more

Once your floors are properly installed, it’s essential to maintain floor care and cleaning that helps keep them looking and functioning the best. But that means different things for different floor types.

Caring for carpet depends on your fiber type and additional benefits that might play a part in the process. For instance, wool means you must be very careful of dampness and humidity, while nylon or polyester upkeep, especially if it contains built-in stain protection, is much more forgiving.

For hardwood floors, be sure to use only manufacturer-approved cleaning agents when you clean them yourself and have professional cleaners take care of them when necessary.

Luxury vinyl tile and plank are easy to care for, and often only require a broom and damp mop to keep them looking fabulous for years to come. You won’t even need to wax these floors to maintain a fantastic shine.

For laminate floors, again, you should only use proper manufacturer-approved cleaning agents. Keeping them dry, if they’re not water-resistant or waterproof, is also necessary.
