Not many may know how to remove the stains efficiently and this is when they need house cleaning service. However, given below are a few simple ideas you can try to remove the stains from the floor.
Tiles are very susceptible to stains, and hence, removing stains from them can be difficult. Use a non-abrasive all-purpose cleaner and rub it over the tile. If this does not work well, use diluted bleach and hydrogen peroxide to clean the tile. There is a chance that the tile may look hazy after doing this; use lemon juice to refresh it. Rinse well with water and clean with a dry cloth.
Vinyl flooring is widely used in kitchens and bathrooms. This flooring is known to require low maintenance. Even if it is relatively resistant to stains, it still gets them and is susceptible to scuff marks and discoloration. To clean this, clean with dishwashing liquid and water, and dry. An alternative to this is to clean it with a mix of a tablespoon of ammonia and a quart of water.
Clean the stains with a wet mop or paper towel. If the stain persists, use a nylon brush to scrub the stain away. You can also try to mix hydrogen peroxide with flour, apply the paste on the stain, and leave it overnight. The stain will come out with the paste when you scrape it out the next day. For more persistent stains, you can buy concrete stain removers from the market.
Depending on the type of stain, there are various methods, you can use. For water stains, cover the stain with a dry cloth and then for a few seconds rub the cloth with a hot iron. If some stains are still visible, then dampen the cloth using denatured alcohol and rub until the stain fades away completely. For other stains, using hydrogen peroxide would be helpful.
Cleaning the carpets is no joke. Most stains can be removed by using a vinegar solution, you have to mix 2 tablespoons of borax and 2 tablespoons of salt into half-cup of vinegar and pour it over the stain. Let it dry, and then vacuum it up. For ink stains, mix milk and cornstarch to form a paste and apply it to the stain. After letting it dry for few hours, vacuum it up to have a sparkling clean floor.
