Now that spring-cleaning is over, and summer has finally arrived — it’s time to take that extra step in properly caring for your floors.  

These long sunny days and breezy summer nights present the perfect opportunity — and these tips will ensure your floor’s longevity and durability for years to come. 

Vacuum and Sweep Regularly 

Summer’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle brings a smorgasbord of unwanted dirt and allergens into your home. Because of this, high-traffic areas can always benefit from a daily sweeping. A quick sweep will work wonders in reducing dust particles and more. Of course regular vacuuming is also key — for both carpeting and hard surfaces. This will protect the finish of your flooring, and ensure clean air and happy noses.  

Shake Out Area Rugs 

Area rugs are frustrating culprits when it comes to collecting unwanted dirt and dust. For rugs that can be carried — bring them outside! This will help loosen dirt particles for more effective vacuuming later on. 

Use a Dehumidifier & Air Conditioner

High levels of humidity can take a toll on the shine and color of your flooring. However, the use of a dehumidifier and air conditioner can greatly help in decreasing humidity, and increasing air circulation — thus preserving your flooring’s original luster for years to come. 

Protect Flooring From The Sun 

Just as you protect your skin from harmful UV rays, it’s important to protect your flooring as well. Over-exposure to sunlight can cause discoloration, making your flooring look years older than it actually is. Don’t worry though, you won’t need special floor sunscreen — simple blinds and curtains do the trick!

Whether it's for Taco Tuesday, wine night with the ladies, homework sessions, or chow time for our four-legged friends — the kitchen is truly the space we congregate in the most. 

Because of that, our kitchen floors can take a bit of a beating — so it's important to choose flooring that is up for the task. Ideally our kitchen floors will be beautiful, easy, and of course, durable. Luckily, nowadays the variety of materials, colors and textures are endless — so it’s just a matter of knowing and narrowing down your options. 

Ceramic, Porcelain and Stone tile are classic and smart choices for high traffic areas. They are low maintenance, yet extremely tough. Tile is a favorite amongst many for its extreme durability, and resistance to stains and moisture. 

Wood is another widely popular choice for today's kitchens. A great option for those seeking the seamless lines of an open floor plan — wood feels soft underfoot and adds warmth to any space. Today's prefinished wood floors stand up especially well against heavy traffic and any accidental spills. 

Vinyl is also a strong option to consider. Perhaps the easiest to maintain and the cushiest to stand on when cooking those big holiday meals — vinyl can provide a beautiful aesthetic, without breaking the bank. Just be sure to select a textured vinyl to provide traction, as this flooring can be extra slippery when wet.
