12-month cleaning calendar | October – Floors

1st October 2022

Sharing is caring!

October is the perfect time for deep cleaning of your floors and the carpet, especially if you have pets. Pet hair and dirt from their fur can often get trodden deeper into the fibres of the carpets. October is also the time of year for Halloween, and recently there has been a sudden surge in decorations, so getting your floors cleaned sooner rather than later will help you feel more at ease with the impending mess. 

There can often be accidents when it comes to flooring. If you have pets there can be accidental stains from dirty paws, or drinks being spilt when you have young children. It might be a good idea to keep Dr. Beckmann’s award-winning carpet stain remover with an integrated brush to hand for any scary accidents and spills that may happen during the month of October.

Don’t forget when looking for cleaning products you can check out Dr. Beckmann’s product range to help spruce up your home. So if you were wanting to spruce up your floors then here are some of the things to think about. 

Deep clean the carpets

One of the first things you might want to do is deep clean the carpets. You can hire a carpet cleaner, or use a product and scrub the carpet with a brush. Cleaning the carpet will help lift ground-in dirt and enable you to feel the freshness once more. A deep clean could also help to get rid of stubborn stains. A carpet cleaner that you hire will use a solution to ensure that the carpet is deodorised and gets rid of any lingering germs.

Spot clean any stains 

If you don’t want to give your full carpet a clean then you can use something like Dr. Beckmann’s carpet stain remover to tackle odd stains that you have seen. This will help you to freshen up the carpets without needing to spend too much time waiting for the carpet to dry once it has been cleaned. 

Vacuum near the skirting boards 

We can all be guilty of cleaning the main surface areas of the carpets and floors with the vacuum, but how often do you get the attachment out and vacuum near the skirting boards and the edges? This is where dust can gather, so it is a good idea for you to vacuum these areas this month. You won’t need to do it too often as long as you vacuum regularly, but this month can help you to really deep clean those floors. 

Mop any wooden or tiled floors 

It isn’t just your carpets that need attention, you might need to think about any wooden and tiled floors that you have. This is a great time to get mopping the floors. You could use a floor cleaner in some warm water and then once you have mopped them you can leave them to dry. You could also invest in a steam cleaner or mop that uses throwaway wipes that will enable you to make quick work of these areas. This will also disinfect the floors helping to get rid of germs and bacteria.

Freshen up the carpets with a fabric freshener 

Finally, you can buy carpet and fabric fresheners that you can spray onto the carpets or leave the powder to soak into the floors and then vacuum it away. This will help to leave a lasting fresh scent once you have finished cleaning and vacuuming. 

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you to freshen up your floors and get them clean in time for winter.
