Your flooring is one of the most important things in your home. It’s usually the first thing you and your visitors see when crossing the doorstep of your property. That’s why it’s so crucial to spend special attention to the flooring when redecorating your home in London on a budget!
You will start with the most extravagant flooring technique – decoupage! Basically, decoupaging different surfaces means you choose good looking sheets of paper, cut them in pieces of different size, arrange and glue them down the flooring surface with a special adhesive for decoupage, cover the flooring with layer/s of decoupage lacquer and wait. Wait until the finish is completely dry.
The Best Ways to Clean Hardwood Floors
-Prep your floor for cleaning by sweeping or dust-mopping to get rid of large particles of dirt and debris.
-Use a pH neutral cleaner that will be gentle on your hardwood floors.
-Use a fine spray mist to clean your floor in sections. Avoid putting too much liquid on your floors.
-Use a microfiber mop to clean. Traditional mops can work, but they can leave excess water on your floors.
-Skip using white vinegar and water to clean your floors. Using a specially formulated hardwood floor care cleaner is a smart way to maintain the beauty and look of your floors.
