Floor Maintenance

The important part of interior design and decor is not just the planning and execution but the maintenance and upkeep. This should not be a very difficult task if you really loved your interiors.  The trickiest part of the interiors that need to be taken care of every day are the floors. As a matter of fact installing the floor is one of the most expensive of all interior building tasks. A lot of time effort and money goes in to this. This is why it is all the more important for you to take good care of it. If there were any blemishes on the walls, one could easily cover it up with a coat of painting. But taking care of the floor or maintaining it is not as simple as this.  If you want your floors to last long then you should certainly take good care of it.

Wooden floors are perhaps one of the most elegant flooring styles. There is a unique grace and elegance to wooden flooring that other materials can match up to. But then the disadvantage is that this is one kind of flooring that certainly requires a lot of care and some heavy duty maintenance. For instance even a slight bit of negligence like exposing your wooden flooring to the sun or damaging it by accidental spilling of water or other elements could cause a permanent discoloration and make the flooring look not only old but also dull. You can use carpet to protect the wooden flooring.

Yet another flooring material is the marble which certainly adds to the beauty of your interiors. This flooring can fortunately be washed with water and soaps to keep it bright and shining. If you think you marble flooring is losing its sheen use hydrogen peroxide to bring backs its old glory. The only thing that you should be concerned about here is chipping off of the floor. This could happen rarely when some heavy objects falls on it. Now this chipped off part could gather grime and dirt. When you clean the floor take extra care to clean away the dirt from chipped off marble flooring.
