Engineered & Hardwood Floors

  • Vacuum your floors often (at least once per week).

  • Wipe up spills ass soon as they occur.

  • Mop your floors occasionally - Recommendations:

    • Grandma's Secret: boil hot water and steep tea bags for 5-minutes. Once finished, remove the tea bags, pour the hot water into your sink, and mop your floors like normal. Make sure to not oversaturate your floors with water.  ​

    • Deep Clean Vinegar:  mix 1 cup distilled water, 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar, 1/2 cup isopropyl alcohol, 2-3 drops of dish soap, 25-30 drops of your favorite essential oil and mop like normal.

    • Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner.

  • Use soft protectors on chairs and furniture.

  • Place doormats outside each entrance to reduce debris.

  • Close blinds & drapery panels to avoid fading.

  • Maintain indoor humidity between 35%-55%.

Carpet

Man Vacuuming
  • Vacuum floors often (daily for high-traffic areas).

  • Blot spills immediately with a white cloth. DO NOT SCRUB!

  • Spot test carpet cleaner in an inconspicuous area first. If this does not discolor your carpet, utilize in the stained area.

  • Place doormats outside each entrance. 80% of carpet stains occur from dirt and debris tracked in from shoes.

  • Close blinds & drapery panels to avoid fading.

​Quartz:

  • Clean daily using a damp cloth and mild detergent.

  • We recommend using Supreme Surfaces Daily Stone Cleaner spray.

  • To avoid dulling the surface, use a non-abrasive combination of 50/50 vinegar and water after rinsing.

  • Do no put hot cookware directly on the surface.  

Natural Stone:

  • Clean daily using a damp cloth and mild detergent. We recommend using Supreme Surfaces Daily Stone Cleaner spray. This is great to use if your counters are polished, honed, brushed or tumbled natural stones.

  • If you have a spill, blot it up immediately, flush with warm water and a mild detergent, and rinse thoroughly. Properly sealed stone will repel most stains if they are cleaned as soon as the spill occurs.

  • Do not stand on your countertops. 

  • Make sure to re-seal your counters after 10-15 years. 

  • DO NOT USE: ammonia, vinegar, lemon or orange cleaning agents, bleach or any abrasive cleaning powders.
