50 YEARS EXPERIENCE

One of the many things that makes Allfloors flooring stand out from the crowd is that it is exceptionally easy to keep in top condition after installation. 

We know that once your flooring is installed, you want to enjoy it for many years to come. All our flooring is incredibly easy to clean and maintain and very little effort is required on your part to keep it looking as good as new.

No matter if it is carpet, wood, LVT, or laminate that you choose for your home we have made sure that all our flooring products are as low maintenance as possible.

Follow these simple tips and keeping your floor in fantastic condition will be a piece of cake. 

Carpet

To keep your carpet in top condition you should: 

Vacuum regularly 

Vacuum cleaners are a must for keeping any home free of dust and dirt. Use a vacuum cleaner with powerful suction, capable of removing stubborn grime such as pet hair from deep within the carpet pile. 

Most vacuum cleaners have a full range of different settings depending on the type of carpet you have so make sure to select the most appropriate one for your needs before beginning your vacuuming.

Protect high-traffic areas 

Our carpets are incredibly durable and hardwearing. However, if you wish to protect high traffic areas even further, you could place a runner or mat over the carpet to protect it. This is particularly useful close to the front door where dirt might be trampled inside.

Tackle Spills Instantly 

The longer you leave a spillage untreated, the higher the risk that it will become a permanent stain.

Contact a professional 

To maximise the longevity of your carpet, consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning company to visit your home. Their commercial grade cleaning tools will penetrate deeper than your own and eliminate dirt and stains from deep within the carpet.

Wooden Flooring

There is a reason that hardwood flooring is the most durable flooring option on the market. It looks great and is easy to care for and following these simple tips will let you enjoy them for many decades to come. 

Sweep and vacuum 

This will prevent any dirt gathering that could scratch the surface of the wood or become embedded in the surface.

Install furniture pads 

Placing pads on the feet of your furniture will ensure that they don’t scrape along the ground and scratch your flooring.

Simply pop on the pads and your floor will remain smooth and beautiful.

Clear away spillages 

Wooden flooring is very unlikely to stain as long as you clear away water or other spills as soon as possible. Clean away spillages as soon as you spot them with a mop or towel.

Protect high traffic areas 

Placing rugs and mats in hallways and other high traffic areas can help to protect against scratching and scuffing.

Use a wood floor cleaner 

Specialist wood cleaners are preferable to standard household cleaners when cleaning hardwood floors. These are readily available and inexpensive.

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring, like natural wood, is extremely easy to maintain. Simply follow its advice for long-lasting beauty and performance. 

Install protective pads 

Place protective pads on the feet of your furniture to avoid scratching or other signs of wear.

Avoid dragging furniture 

Even with pads installed, lifting and placing furniture is always preferrable to dragging, no matter what flooring type is in place.

Use Castor Protectors 

If your sofas, tables, and chairs have castor feet, install castor protectors beneath them. These discs prevent dents from appearing on your floor where the castors have pressed into it.

Protect high traffic areas 

Rugs and mats can help to extend the life of your laminate in high traffic areas.

Clean spills quickly 

Laminate flooring is not designed to be wet and failing to deal with spills quickly can lead to serious damage and a reduced lifespan. Clear spills quickly with a cloth or mop to protect the flooring in your house or business.

Vinyl & LVT Flooring

Luxury vinyl adds serious style to your home and is designed to last for many years with little maintenance. Here are a few straightforward ways to maximise longevity. 

Use entrance mats 

Entrance mats reduce the amount of dirt that gets onto your floor by up to 70%. Placing these by your front and back doors will help to reduce dirt and grime build up.

Sweep and mop 

Use a mop to clean spills as soon as they occur to prevent stains from sitting in. A bit of TLC will give your everything it needs for a long and happy life.

Don’t drag furniture 

Dragging furniture will do unnecessary damage to your flooring, even if you have furniture pads installed. Instead, lift whenever possible, if safe to do so.

Use non-abrasive cleaners 

Scrubbing your floor with an abrasive cleaner may well do damage to the LVT. Instead, use a PH floor cleaner, or simply a clean mop with warm water.

Vacuum regularly 

This will remove anything that could scratch or stick to the surface of your floor, as well as any other dirt brought in by humans or pets.
