Summer weather is officially here to stay. If you have been looking forward to summer you are not alone. Thousands of people report that summer is their favorite season of the year. Summer brings family vacations, barbecues, swimming, Independence Day, time off of school, and more. If swimming is in your summer plans, Orange County Steam Masters has some tips for you on how to make sure that your flooring does not get ruined this summer. Here in Orange County, California we have the ability to swim at the beach and at the swimming pool. Both present their own set of issues when it comes to your flooring. We will explore some of the extra precautions that you need to take care of no matter what type of swimming you will be doing.
Don’t Leave Wet Towels & Clothes on Floor
One of the most common ways that swimming affects your flooring is that it gets your flooring wet. Wet flooring of any kind provides all sorts of issues. Wet tile is slippery. Wet carpet can mildew. Wet hardwood floors will buckle. No matter what type of flooring you have, you do not want your family to get in the habit of putting their wet towels and swim wear on your flooring and leaving it there. The first thing that you will want to do is have a plan for what you are going to do with your wet towels and swim wear when you are done swimming. Where will your wet towels and swim wear go? The exact answer is not as important as the fact that you have an answer. Some people have their families leave all of their wet gear outside. Others have their families take it inside and put it at a predetermined location. Once you have come up with your plan you will want to make sure that everyone in your family knows and understands the plan. Even if you have a plan for what your family is supposed to do with their wet towels and swim wear, it will not always happen as you planned for it to. Sometimes your family members will wrap up in their swimming towel and curl up on their bed or a sofa inside your home. This can lead to your flooring getting wet. If you notice your floor is wet you will want to dry the area as quickly as possible.
Clean Salt & Chlorine from Floors
In addition to getting your flooring wet, swimming can also cause other issues for your flooring. The chlorine and salt that is found in the water can get on your floor or furniture and cause staining. If you notice that you have chlorine and salt marks on your flooring you will want to clean it up immediately. The sooner that you get the area cleaned up, the easier it will be to get it out.
