Sometimes, pulling a mop over your tiles or timber floors just isn’t enough to give them a really good clean, and it seems that all you’re doing is moving the dirt from one place to another. That’s why you need a good quality hard floor cleaner that actually removes the dirt and mess, leaving your floors squeaky clean.
The problem is knowing which type of cleaner to buy, because your options include a wood floor cleaner, steam vacuum or even a steam mop. If you have carpets, you’ll probably want an appliance that can clean all your floors (including hard wood, tiles and carpets), rather than buying multiple appliances for each surface.
At Godfreys, we have a range of excellent cleaning appliances that are perfect for hard floors as well as some that are great for both hard floors and carpets. They cover all price ranges, so there’s something for everyone. We’ll take a look at some of these options, but first let’s answer two popular questions.
The first question is, how does a steam cleaner affect wood floors? The second is, can you use a carpet cleaner on tile floors?
How does a steam cleaner affect wood floors? Well, the majority of manufacturers state that you can use a steam cleaner on wood floors if they are fully sealed. If the timber is not in good shape and is not fully sealed against moisture, steam can work its way into the wood and cause it to warp. So, if you want to use your steam cleaner on your timber floors, make sure they’re fully sealed.
Can you use a carpet cleaner on tile floors? That depends on what you mean by a carpet cleaner. Of course, you can use a vacuum on a tiled floor, but most people aren’t sure if they can use their carpet shampooer on tiles. The short answer is yes and no. Yes, if the carpet cleaner has been designed to clean both tiles and carpets. Otherwise, the answer is no, because the shampooer might damage the tiles.
