While your home might be wall to wall carpet, some areas might still feature hardwood floors. Sometimes, the type of floor you have comes down to your preference, and other times it is pre-installed for you and you have no say in the matter. Here is how you can spring clean your hardwood floors.
One way to give your home a delightful new scent in time for spring is to use a citrus-scented cleaning solution. They’re eco-friendly, since they’re all-natural. Any time you see some residue, you won’t have to worry about harsh chemicals making someone in your family sick. Your kids and pets can play on it with no problems. Wondering what scents they could be? While lemon is most common, you can also find some that smell like oranges and grapefruits.
They Smell Great
Don’t hesitate to have guests over this spring. After all, the citrus-based cleaners you use will leave a great smell even after you’re done. It will help the entire home feel like a healthier, happier place to be. Especially since germs are flying from everyone coughing and sneezing due to allergies, you’re going to need plenty of it. At least it won’t smell like bleach or hydrogen peroxide! Also, you can use water, and it won’t change the effectiveness of the cleaner!
Mix It with Water
Sometimes, you’ll need to add some water to the mix. Luckily, citrus-based cleaners blend well with water. Then when it’s time to mop, you can do so without spraying the water everywhere. You’ll only need a little bit, and then your hardwood floors will be as good as new.
Achieve a Great Shine
You’ll also come away with a soft shine on your hardwood floors. Impress your guests or potential homebuyers before May, which is the most popular month for house sales to happen. You still have some time to get ready, but you’ll want every part of your home to look its best. The oil contained in the citrus-based cleaners will help you attain this fantastic look.
