End of tenancy cleaning: the wood floor 

 

The wood floor makes the house definitely cozier. You can put a carpet on it, or you can leave it like that. Either ways you will love it and all your guests, too. Because it is natural and it creates a lovely atmosphere and makes you feel at home right after you go through the threshold. At first you thought that it could be more easily maintained than the carpeted floor, but in fact, you realized you were deluded. Well, there is nothing facile in this life and everything needs some sort of commitment. The ugly truth about this harsh reality is that using only the vacuum-cleaner, you won’t achieve any kind of result at all. Yeah, you will probably be able to get rid of a particular amount of dust and some dirt, but you won’t remove some stains and other grime. So when your rent agreement is coming to an end and you have already arranged an appointment with the landlord for the inspection, you are starting to panic, and you have to stop! Follow these simple steps and soon the floor will even sparkle.

Vacuum-cleaning

Well, don’t skip it. The vacuum-cleaner is indeed an appliance with magical power, so it may not make the floor look perfect, but it will be beneficial for sure and it is going to remove a lot of dust and some dirt like hair in the living room and the bedroom or some leavings in the kitchen, for instance.

The microfiber mop

There are some new generation cleaning tools and one of them is definitely the microfiber cloth. Yes, you know that you have to go through the floor with a rug, because the vacuum-cleaner simply cannot reach every place, but you are not keen on the idea of being on your knees with a wet clout and microfiber cloth for hours. And here comes the innovation – the microfiber mop. It has a telescopic handle and could be exactly as long as you want it to be. And you can clean with it just like you do with the vacuum-cleaner – easy, fast and efficient. After using this tool there won’t be any grime at all and the whole floor will be almost clear and ready for inspection.

The same mop and a detergent

A really common mistake is cleaning the wood floor with a normal traditional mop and water. Please, avoid it, because the water is not a friend to the wood and applying a large amount of it on the floor is like torturing the parquet. So you better know that the wood in contrast to the laminate requires a lot more care. There are many wood floor cleaning kits which have some nice eco-friendly detergents or you can buy only the cleaning product from the supermarket. Using these ones will not only make your floor look absolutely flawless, but will also improve its quality and prolong its life. And when the landlord comes with the end of tenancy cleaning checklist, he will be more than impressed.
