From the ground up: 5 tips on keeping your floors clean this summer


As we approach the time of year where people spend more time outdoors, the last thing you want is to track it all back inside with you.

When it comes down to it, having clean floors makes a colossal difference to how tidy your home feels overall. On top of that, it can help prevent the build-up of germs that can otherwise accumulate on an unclean floor and keep as much dust, pollen and dirt out of your home as possible.

Cleaning them might not be everyone’s favourite job to do, but the pride you feel at the end of it makes it worthwhile. There are plenty of ways in which you can get ahead of the dust and dirt, ensuring they look their best for as long as possible.

One of the ways you can ditch dust for good, is with the Samsung Jet™ vacuum cleaner range and Clean Station™. It will give you a level of hygiene and cleanliness unlike any other cordless vacuum cleaner. With several different options to choose from, including the brand-new powerful Bespoke Jet™ vacuum, there is a model to suit any home. You can find out more on the Samsung website here.

Embrace change

Even if the vacuum you have has been a faithful friend for many years and still works without a problem, it might not be the best way to clean your floors. Technology has brought us many things over the past number of years, including new and exciting gadgets designed to keep your home as clean as can be.

The difference isn’t just what the eye can see, as floors can hold a lot of unseen problems as well. From finding ways to get rid of the bacterial build-up that happens over time, to helping to clear out any pollen that might have come in from outside, you’d be surprised what is on offer at the moment.

The multi-layered filtration system of the Samsung Bespoke Jet™ traps 99.999pc of dust*, while the Jet Cyclone is designed to catch fine dust particles like pollen and mould**. Not only does this mean your floors will be noticeably dirt free, but it also means you can make the air in your home as hygienically clean as the floors.

Don’t leave it all for a spring clean

It can be hard to make time for cleaning floors regularly, especially in a busy home. It is worth it in the long run to aim for at least one vacuum a week, particularly with carpets and rugs due to the build-up of bacteria and allergens that takes place over time.

Putting it off until you can do a “big clean” not only gives time for this build-up to take place, but it also means the effort you’ll have to put in to effectively clean it increases as well. Your best bet, both in terms of the overall cleanliness of your home and the amount of effort it takes to clean, is to try keeping on top of it as much as possible.

Modern vacuums are quite lightweight as well, which backs up the previous point about investing in a new one being a worthwhile move. Gone are the days of having to pull a clunky vacuum with you around the house every time you want to clean!


Stay on top of them

This somewhat supports the previous point, but reacting quickly to any spills or accidents can make an enormous difference in the long run. Not only does it help you avoid any ugly stains, but also helps stop anything that would have otherwise been easy to clean from building up into something that’s much harder to get out.

While with the right vacuum you can tackle anything, open space is your best friend when it comes to stopping dirt from building up in the first place. Getting rid of any clutter won’t just help you make the most of the space you have in any give room, but will help you keep the floors clean as well.

Rein in the pets

As much as we love our cats and dogs, they can so often be the cause of a lot of mess on our floors. This can build up quite a bit over the course of time, so any advice that makes that a little bit easier to get rid of can make a huge difference!

Pet hairs getting on the floors is something of an inevitability for many of us, so finding a vacuum that has a specialised pet attachment can make a bigger difference than you might expect. As well as that, measures like regularly grooming your pets, drying wet mud off them before letting them inside and even cleaning their chew toys can stop as much dirt from finding its way onto your beautifully clean floors.

Change your approach

There is no single approach that works on every type of floor, and you’ll need to come up with a different plan to best suit the floors in your home beyond regularly vacuuming. For example, hardwood floors are going to need a need a completely different approach to stone or marble to make sure they are properly maintained.

If it’s wooden floors you’ve got at home, moderation is key as too much water on the mop will not only not clean as well but also risk damaging the wood. Even if a generic floor cleaner works in the short term, you’re always better off in the long run to use the right products.

Regardless of what floors you have in your home, the attachment options and suction power settings on the Samsung Jet™ range makes moving between floor types much easier. From a spray spinning sweeper attachment on the Bespoke Jet™ that was designed to clean hard floors, to nylon and rubber bristles for carpets, you can rest assured of having all the tools you need to keep your floors clean.
