Floors that require the least maintenance are laminate and the recently popular vinyl plank flooring, according to Akoubian.Santa Clarita Home Cleaning Company Aquakor

Hardwood floors and tile should be cleaned at least once a week with a neutral PH solution, while carpet should be vacuumed about twice a week.

One of the most functional layouts Akoubian sees in Santa Clarita Valley homes is hard surfaces in the living room, dining room and hallway and carpet from the staircase and up.

“In my personal opinion it will be very functional that way,” he said. “Now if you want to enhance the house and make it a richer look, you can have hard surfaces like tile or hardwood floor in the living room, dining room, hallway area and staircase also, and you can leave the bedrooms with carpet.”

While many people may think they have to avoid carpet because of health conditions like asthma, Akoubian clarified that modern carpeting is actually healthier to have in bedrooms than hard surfaces.

“The old carpet used to be the worst … because it used to be staple fiber,” he explained, noting that this kind of carpet was discontinued by all manufacturers about five years ago and replaced with BCL (bulked continuous filament) carpets. “It’s very healthy to have (BCL) carpet in bedrooms. It works as a filter.”

Trying to deep-clean carpets yourself using machines from big box stores risks causing damage to your carpets that has to be corrected by a professional.

“Those machines leave so much water on the carpet that it will delaminate the backing, and then I get to the house and see all those wrinkles because they basically destroyed the backing,” Akoubian said. “So we have to go and power stretch it.”

As far as extending the life of hardwood floors, a professional Santa Clarita home cleaning company like Aquakor can lightly sand the floor and apply a coat of aluminum oxide finish to enhance the look of the floor for five years or more.

Standard cleaning and waxing, as well as deep refinishing and restoration, is also available through professionals like Aquakor.
