ServiceMaster Cleaning By Simons Are the Go-To Professionals for Residential Hard Surface Floor Cleaning in The Loop, Chicago


    Whether they’re tile, hardwood, marble, or laminate, your floors have probably seen a lot of wear and tear this winter season. ServiceMaster Cleaning By Simons offers expert residential hard surface floor cleaning in the Loop, Chicago, IL, and the surrounding Chicagoland areas.

    Cleaning hardwood floors

    Use a dust mop or broom to sweep away dust and debris. Using a vacuum could cause light surface scratches that will become more apparent over time.

    Use warm water – not hot water – to lightly dampen a mop or cloth. Do not soak the mop or cloth because doing so can damage the wood flooring. Using vinegar can damage the surface of your flooring. Mop in the same direction the wood planks run, and mop with the grain, not against the grain.

    Cleaning tile floors

    Tile floors are generally easy to clean. The main issues come from stains on the tile and in the grout. To prevent this from happening, clean up spills immediately, especially if they are notorious for staining like wine, grape juice, or curry. Clean grout with an abrasive pad.

    Cleaning laminate

    The cleaning of laminate is similar to that of wood. Start with a dust mop or vacuum the floor of dust and debris. It’s recommended to use a microfiber pad for cleaning. Sponge mops or string mops will push the water around and make it easier for the water to seep between cracks. Clean the floors in the same direction that the planks run.

    Cleaning marble

    Marble is a beautiful and delicate type of flooring. It is porous, so cleaning it on a regular basis is vital to keeping it looking new. Use a mild dish soap or detergent in one bucket of water. Never use acidic substances on marble flooring.

    Even with the best of DIY cleaning, all types of flooring will, at some point, require a thorough, professional cleaning. In Chicago, IL, call the experts at ServiceMaster Cleaning By Simons. Our trained, certified, and experienced staff can clean and restore all types of hard surface flooring to preserve and prolong its durability and beauty!
