The floor of a room like the kitchen is always subject to becoming dirty with accidental splashes and drops of different substances.
It’s important in order to maintain a good appearance of each finish that there should be a habit of removing a newly created stain while it is still fresh.
There may be different type of stains, and to each one the most appropriate treatment must be applied: if the stain dries quickly, it usually consists of water-soluble food substances (such as sugars, starches, etc.) and hot water is the most effective remedy for its removal. If it is sticky and persistent, it may become necessary to use a specific treatment.
Before resorting to aggressive substances, you can try to intervene immediately with a mixture of baking soda mixed with hydrogen peroxide, which is effective in most cases.
If it is still not enough, in order not to ruin anything, it is always better to avoid resorting to acids or abrasive tools that can cause permanent scratches on delicate finishes (for example they are cause harm to shiny floors): cream cleansers or gels are always more desirable as products for the stubborn stains.
Particular attention must be paid when cleaning the joints, this is where dirt easy accumulates.
A good rule is to periodically, (at least once a week), pour on the floor a degreaser diluted in a certain amount of water, and then to persist on the joints with a stiff bristle brush.
Finally, a word of advice when the weather is bad and the freshly washed floors never seem to dry: is to accelerate the process by in fact just adding half a glass of alcohol to the water prior to washing the floor.
