Which Flooring Options Are The Easiest To Clean?


They get walked all over, right? But despite the way they get treated, they still hold up quite well and provide a little bit of taste and even a pinch of elegance to our homes.

But when the time comes to clean those pesky floors, they can be a little bit difficult to work with.

You may think that the Alamo Steam Team is only equipped to cleaning carpets.

Tile Flooring

Tile flooring is beautiful, elegant, classy, and can even help keep your home cool during those relentlessly hot San Antonio summers.

Not to mention, certain types of tile — including luxury vinyl tile and ceramic tile — are considered to be among the best options when it comes to low maintenance flooring.

Tile floors are hard, durable, and fairly easy to clean. All it takes is a bit of upkeep, a mop, and fast action when something is spilled. You don’t have to worry quite as much about stains, and you also don’t have to worry much about your floors getting scratched up by a pet.

However, it is also important to keep in mind that low maintenance doesn’t mean no maintenance. Your floors, particularly in high-traffic areas, still experience quite a bit of wear and tear — figuratively speaking — even if they are made of tile.

When it comes to cleaning tile and grout, it’s recommended that you let a professional use state-of-the-art steam cleaning methods in order to give them a good shine every now and then.

Natural Stone

What better to accent your granite countertops than with some natural stone flooring? Like tile, or even polished concrete, natural stone is built to last and provide beauty and efficiency for many, many years.

This durable flooring option is also fairly easy to maintain with simple household items like a vacuum and a mop.

However, there can be times in which your natural stone flooring begins to fade.

Should this be the case, don’t fret. Be sure to protect your investment with natural stone polishing, cleaning and resurfacing from a professional.


You may not think that carpet is low maintenance, but it is one of the most popular flooring options for a reason. Carpet can be easy to manage, so long as you give it the attention and aid that it requires.

Be sure to have your carpets professionally cleaned every six months, or at the very least once per year, to make maintenance that much simpler!
