@Jestin and Forever Clean,

Have you heard of Kaivac before? We have created a method of cleaning that enables you to remove soils from the floor instead of moving them around with a mop. Our system removes soils and actually leaves the floor dry, eliminating time spent waiting around and leaving the floor much cleaner than other methods.

Check out our new OmniFlex system specifically designed to be flexible for all floor types. Very good price for all it does... MSRP $699 for the whole system. You can also buy tools and chemicals in our online store. Kaivac.com

methods of floor cleaning

Everytime you step out of your home your shoes are collecting dirt and grime from the street. Obviously, this dirt eventually ends up all over your home and will accumulate on your floor at an alarming rate. This means that understanding your floor and knowing how to clean it can save you tons of money in the long run.

Every type of flooring requires a different method of cleaning to maintain it and increase its lifespan. Hence, you should use a cleaning method that is suited for your floor. If this appears tough or too lengthy for you, hire services of reliable commercial floor cleaners in your city. They have the knowledge and the expertise to take care of different types of floors.

Add a cup of vinegar into a gallon of water for homemade mopping solution. Besides cheap, this method also consumes less time since you do not have to give second rinse after vinegar mopping.

Depends on many factors.

Please give more information on the following:
- Size of the floors you have to clean
- The condition of the floor
- Whether the floor have wax/finish/coating on it
- Your cleaning budget
- Do you have a floor machine or auto scrubber
- The demands of you or your client

Hardwood Floors: Deeper Cleaning
Dirt, oil, and grime build up over time and aren't completely removed by a weekly dust mopping. For occasional deep cleaning (consider doing the cleaning in the spring or just before the winter holidays), use a wood-cleaning product diluted according to the label instructions. Saturate a sponge or rag mop in the water, then wring it almost dry so it feels only slightly damp to the touch. Damp-mop the floor, being careful to prevent standing water on the floor. Rinse with a clean mop dampened in clear water, but only if the cleaning product requires it. Wipe up excess liquid because standing water can damage wood surfaces.

For Wooden Floor I just dampen a washcloth (wet and wring out) and tuck it over my swiffer-like cloth floor sweeper. Uses moisture to get any spills out and is just damp enough to pick up residual dust that won't come up otherwise.

I agree, we have found it a lot helpful to follow some points like keeping the shoes out and wearing socks at home. Also many of the suggestions above are good.

You need to select cleaning process as your floor type. As if you have tile flooring, then the cleaning tips will be different and if you use them on marble or wood flooring then it would be harmful for them. Cleaning of floors depends on their type.

Tile floors, wood,pergo (fake wood look)-each require a different method.
the best way to learn what to use on floors so you won't damage them is to go to a flooring store that sells products for each floor.
A good wood cleaner is bona and you would want to get a special mop that you use only for wood and never anything else.
Tile floors for general maintenance you can use a neutral cleaner.Available at home depot and just about anywhere.Soap like dawn can make the floor sticky,so avoid that.Never use wood floor cleaning mops for tile or visa versa.
Pergo ( the fake wood look) is really nothing more than formica (the countertops of old) you can use a neutral cleaner on this as well.Plus if it has stains or grease you can spray some 409 or fantastic to remove.You would want to mop again as you don't want to make a streaky mess,but it's safe and will not cause harm.
Remember the flooring companies though as each new flooring material surfaces in homes you can always go there to get information.Same goes for countertops and cabinets.

In everyday life, the chance of things spilling on the floor and getting dried up are extremely high. Daily cleaning is a must. Everyday floor cleaning is a great way to keep it looking fresh and new. Even mere dusting of the floor will help you maintain it and avoid scratches.

It really depends on the what type of surface you are cleaning. granite, marble, hardwood have different tolerance levels to acidic cleaning solutions. You really have to treat them accordingly or you'd end up having more mess.

Here's a good list of dos and don'ts for hardwoods. http://www.northlandwholesale.com/bl...ins-from-wood/

Depends on what type of flooring you want to clean. Different methods and equipment depending on surface. Speaking in terms of hard surface flooring, such as tile and grout, natural stone, etc. a truckmount or at least a decent high pressure portable unit and a spinner or tile and grout wand, along with a floor machine with grit brush, a deck brush and grout brush along with a good prespray like tilemaster or 2790 would be ideal.

Cleaning and care for hardwood floors

Regular mopping wont do much reach the dirt that lies deep in the pores of your hardwood, but Maid In Saint Louis' process does. This process includes an initial vacuuming of the areas to remove any loose dirt and debris, an auto scrubbing with an alkaline cleaner and then another auto scrubbing with a neutral cleaner to return the floor to its initial sheen. Edges are hand scrubbed, as are stairs.

Remember to always:

Clean up spills immediately.
Vacuum or dust mop your floor once a week, or more, if needed.
Place mats at every entrance to protect against dirt or debris as well as moisture to prevent it from being tracked onto the floor.
Place runners and area rugs (with slip-resistant backings) along high-traffic areas.
Prevent damage to your floor by avoiding movement of heavy appliances and furniture on the floor by using hard, narrow furniture rollers with wide rubber rollers.
Area rugs are recommended in front of kitchen sinks, at all pivot points and within high-traffic areas.
Minimize damage to your floor from direct sunlight.
Never:

Never use any of the following products on your floor: acrylic finishes, wax based products, detergents, ammonia based products, bleach, or polishes and oil soaps. Never use abrasive cleaning soaps or acidic materials such as vinegar.
Never allow water to stand on your floor for any length of time..
Avoid using rubber or non breathable materials for your mats.
Never use vacuums with the beater bars enabled.

The method of cleaning depend upon three things:
(1) what cleaning products to use, (2) what type of surfaces to use them on, and (3) how to use them.

Different flooring surfaces require a specific type of cleaning process. Using the wrong method and formula for your specific flooring material can eventually (or quickly) ruin the floor. For all of the following tips, please test first on an inconspicuous are to determine compatibility with your floor. Floor care for all wood floors is not the same. You need to know if your wood has a surface finish or if it has a penetrating finish.
