If you just got new floors in your home or commercial space, congratulations! It's a great way to spruce up your space while still finding a great and versatile way to run a business or home. But when you get new floors, you want to show them off, right? We understand! At the same time, you want to keep the integrity of the floors and keep them looking brand new. If you’re planning a party or social event, but want to be pro-active on keeping your floors clean, here are a few ways to combat any messes or damages before they happen:
Ask people to take off shoes
This might not be ideal for all situations, especially if it’s a business-related event. But it’s definitely something to consider if you have new residential floors. Having people take off their shoes helps prevent guests from tracking in dirt and grime onto the carpet, linoleum or other types of floors.
Ask people not to wear heels
Again, this might be a harder request if you have hardwoods in a commercial space; however it’s a sure way to prevent scratching right after a floor installation if you have hardwood flooring in your home. If you’re hosting a party, simply ask guests to be mindful of their footwear. Let them know you’ve just had a floor installation and you want to keep it pristine. Trust us, if they’ve ever had brand new floors, they’ll understand!
Have floor cleaner on standby
What comes with any party? Food and drinks! When you’re hosting, no matter the type of floors, be sure to have the appropriate cleaner ready in case of a spill. Carpet, hardwood or linoleum all have simple spot-cleaning solutions, so be sure to get the one that’s right for you. And just remember -- it’s OK if something spills on your brand new carpet or hardwoods. Life happens! Just be proactive and clean it up immediately to avoid any costly damage.
Add a rug in the party room
We say this time and time again, but adding a simple area rug can do so many things for your space. It’s a versatile piece and is a great way to protect your recent floor installation. Not to mention, it can compliment your space and make an attractive asset to your floors. Wherever you plan on hosting, add a large area rug to the space. You can still show off the flooring, but still protect it from any potential damage.
You’ve invested a lot of money in your floors, and we understand the desire to show them off. But you also want to protect them during parties and other shindigs -- both corporate and residential. Whatever the case, consider these simple, yet effective ways to prevent spills, scuffs, scratches and other messes. Keep your flooring looking great for years and years to come.
