Which Floors are Easiest to Clean?

Which Floors are Easiest to Clean?

Our floors take a beating every day. They not only absorb the pressures of feet and furniture, but they also absorb dirt, dust, pet dander, and other allergens. All of these pollutants can make your floors – and your home or office – look unkempt and disgusting, but they can be bad for your health.

While no one wants dirty flooring, no one wants to spend a lot of time, money, or effort keeping them clean. Today’s consumers are looking for floors that are both attractive and easy to maintain. The good news is that no matter what your preferences are in terms of flooring versus carpet, you can find a product that fits the easy-cleaning bill.

Here are four floors that you can keep clean with minimal effort:


The reason you see tile and not carpet in the kitchen is because it is the perfect surface for spills and frequent foot traffic. All of the liquids, crumbs, and dirt that fall on tile can be just as quickly removed with a damp paper towel or rag. You can sweep tile to keep it clean and mop it on occasion to keep it shining like new.


People love hardwood floors for their timeless appearance and versatility. But they are also a breeze to keep clean. Most of today’s hardwood floors are sealed with a finish, meaning that a good dusting or vacuuming, followed by a dry mopping, is all you need to get rid of residue and leave your hardwood floors in tip-top shape.


Luxury vinyl floors are so well-crafted these days that they can easily pass for natural stone and hardwood while costing a fraction of the price. Not only are these floors cheaper than stone or hardwood, but they are also super simple to clean. As with tile, sweeping or vacuuming is all that is needed to remove any residue, dirt, or dust, followed by a quick mopping or dusting.  


It isn’t wrong to think that keeping carpet clean is a taller order than doing the same for tile, vinyl, or hardwood, but that doesn’t mean it’s difficult. All it takes is regular vacuuming – multiple times a week for areas that get a lot of traffic, far less for other parts of the house. Additionally, many of today’s carpeting styles are stain-proof, spill-proof, and pet-proof, making little accidents no big deal.
