You use the broom too often, instead of vacuuming

If you have hardwood or laminate floors, one of the best methods to get rid of dirt is to use your vacuum cleaner, not the broom – or at least, this is recommended by cleaning experts if you want to keep your floors looking brand new.

“If you’re going to mop or sweep, make sure you vacuum first to prevent moving those itty-bitty particles and abrasives — like sand — along the floor’s surface, which can scratch or damage floors,” says Carter.

So, the next time you want to clean your floors, just try to use a vacuum cleaner rather than a broom.
