BISSELL’s Step-By-Step Guide to Spring Cleaning Floors

Our floors take a beating during the winter months of entertaining, snow, mud, and dirt. Get a head start on Spring cleaning by starting with your carpet and floors. I want to do everything to protect our new STAINMASTER carpet and our Tarkett flooring to keep it looking good for a long time. Check out this Step-By-Step Guide to Spring Cleaning Floors by BISSELL.

Step-By-Step Guide to Spring Cleaning Carpets


  1. Move as much furniture as possible out of the way – use furniture glides to make it easier.
  2. Vacuum the carpet thoroughly with a vacuum like BISSELL CleanView, going over heavy traffic areas 5-7 times.
  3. Pre-treat deep set-in stains to loosen the stain.
  4. Use a deep cleaner to remove dirt and stains. Pass slowly over each area. Wait 4-6 hours to dry. BISSELL recommends deep cleaning at least twice a year to keep your carpets looking nice.
  5. Once the carpet has dried, vacuum once more to finish cleaning. (I’ve never done this last step – good point!)

Cleaning In-Between Deep Cleans

  1. Vacuum the entire area of the carpet at least once per week, twice for heavy traffic areas. (What mom doesn’t already do this and more?!)
  2. Use a product like Febreze™ Carpet Deodorizing Powders on your carpets for better cleaning – it helps pick up dirt and hair on carpet. (I didn’t know it actually helps to make vacuuming more effective – I thought it was for keeping floors smelling good longer – I’m going to implement this.)Hawaiian-Aloha

Step-By-Step Guide to Spring Cleaning Solid Flooring(Hardwood, Linoleum, Vinyl or Tile)

  1. Move large appliances, furniture and rugs out of the way, furniture glides make it easier.
  2. Sweep and then vacuum the entire room.
  3. Steam clean the entire floor to sanitize. This eliminates germs and bacteria due to the high temperature of the steam.

Cleaning In-Between Deep Cleans

  1. Place doormats at all entrances to avoid tracking in dirt and water. This reduces the risk of abrasive materials from coming in and scratching the surface of your floors.
  2. Clean your solid floors at least once a week with a sweeper, a dust/dry mop, a hard floor cleaner or a wood floor cleaner. (I use the BISSELL Perfect Sweep Turbo.)

I’m inspired to do a little Spring Cleaning, how about you? Just ignore the snow outside!  Get your house ready for Spring!  The above Hawaiian Aloha might do the trick to get you in the mood for warmer weather – I plan to pick up a container this week! 🙂

Happy Spring Cleaning!
