Easy-To-Clean Changes To A House

No matter how small a house is, cleaning it can be a pain – unless you like cleaning. For most people however, the less they have to do, the better but unfortunately, houses are not always designed with the intention of making them easier to clean. They are built more for style or economy than sanitary reasons. So if you have a house that you are thinking of modifying, here are some room-by-room suggestions for you.

Living Room

This is the room that receives the most visitors, and is therefore the one that has to appear (at least) the cleanest and tidiest. If you have carpets on your floors for instance, you might as well wake up with a vacuum in your hand every day. Wooden floors can be just as bad; they soon show wear and tea and need to be polished fairly regularly while also making sure that no liquids spill and remain on it for too long as the wood can get stained. Instead, talk to a designer or architect and find out whether you can have polished concrete services at Central Coast. These are easy to maintain and require only a sweep every couple of days and a quick steam or normal mop every month. Stains can be scrubbed off and it is basically shatter proof so you don’t need to baby it like a tiled floor either.

Kitchen Space

If your kitchen shares space with a pantry or is simply an island at the end of the dining area, then this can be a bit difficult. Counter tops usually bear the brunt of the cleaning, and anything other than granite will usually wear away fairly soon. Hard board, and plywood are not water-resistant, and swell up when it comes into contact with any liquid. The laminate lasts longer but will suffer from fungus if all moisture is not religiously cleaned from it all the time. A granite counter solves all of the above problems and makes coasters redundant – granite is a non-conductor of heat, and is extremely safe.

As for the floor, expect the kitchen to get constantly wet and display stains of every kind. So carpets and rugs are out. Once again, a cement floor or tiled floor will work because it can be washed and mopped easily. Hiring concreters would be ideal to get the job done with polished concrete cost. All it takes is a couple of days: one day to get the measurements and one to lay it out. After it dries overnight, you can walk on it the next day.
