Floor Care
Keeping your new floor beautiful isn’t tough when you know how to maintain flooring properly. Below you’ll find several guidelines for flooring maintenance.

Elite Floorcovering recommends that you first check with your Abbey expert for specific cleaning techniques that might apply.

Carpet
Your new Elite Floorcovering carpet represents a substantial investment in your home. An investment that you’ll want to keep looking its best for many years to come.

Hardwood Flooring
Prevent scratches and dulling caused by dust with the use of mats or rugs at all entrances. Vacuum with a suction action or dust with a mop once a week. Beware, the use of dusting products can dull the finish. Polyurethane or similar surfaces require a damp mop for routine clean-ups. Never clean wax finished floors with water or even a damp mop. Follow the manufacturers’ directions for bigger clean-ups, otherwise, use a solution of ¼ cup white vinegar in 4 cups of warm water. When using a damp rag or sponge, wipe the floor dry as you go. Oil, soaps or ammonia products can cause damage and dull surface finishes.

Tile/Stone
Ordinary sweeping and an occasional wiping with a damp sponge mop, using a small amount of soap-less detergent in warm water will clean your ceramic tile beautifully. Soaps are not recommended as they leave a film which dulls the surface and promotes mildew. Steel wool pads, acid cleaner and vinegar are also not recommended due to the damage caused to grout.

Laminate Flooring
Ordinary vacuuming and an occasional wipe over with a damp cloth or mop is usually all the cleaning a laminate floor needs.

Resilient Flooring
This flooring requires only basic maintenance. Spills and messes are easily wiped up. Regular vacuuming and occasional damp mopping and washing with a manufacturer recommended non-abrasive cleaner will eliminate dirt and dust particles.

Area Rugs
Rug pads will protect your rug from slipping and make sure your rug retains its original condition.
