Floor Care Recommendations
Here are some tips for the care of your vinyl or ceramic floors in either your bathrooms or kitchens.
The walls of your home are painted with a washable paint. Regular cleaning with a sponge or cloth dipped in soap and warm water will remove any dirt or fingerprints that are on your walls.
If you use a wheelchair and are regularly bumping part of a wall and gouging it, please contact us.
We will put protective strips or corner molding on the wall as needed.
Care of Laminate Flooring
You should thoroughly clean your bathroom with a disinfectant cleaner once each week. If this is not done, soap scum will begin to build up in your tub and sink. Also be sure to clean your toilet with toilet bowl cleaner and a toilet brush. Lack of cleaning will cause fungus and mildew to grow in bathroom grout. You can find toilet bowl cleaner, tub and grout cleaner and floor cleaner at your local supermarket.
It is your responsibility to keep the carpet clean in your house. You should vacuum your carpet at least once a week to keep dirt from being ground into the carpet. If you see dirt on the carpet you may have to vacuum more often. Anytime you spill something on your carpet, you should clean it immediately to prevent the carpet from being stained. We recommend that you always keep some carpet stain remover in your home to use when spills occur. Carpet stain remover can be found at your grocery store.
If you use a wheelchair, work with your provider to wipe off your wheels when you enter the house in bad weather. This will prevent mud from being tracked into the house in warm weather and ice and road salt in the winter.
We recommend that you have your carpet professionally cleaned twice a year. You may have to do this more often if you have excessive staining.
