Whether your room features wall-to-wall carpeting
, vinyl, laminate, or something else, cleaning the floor surface can refresh the entire room. Check with your flooring dealer or home center expert on the best way to clean the type of flooring you have and what to avoid. For example, most manufacturers of prefinished hardwood floors advise against using water or ammonia-based products to avoid damaging the finish. Instead, select from a wide variety of cleaning products designed specifically for your flooring.
