How To Remove Streaks and Marks from Your Floors

28 Sep

Scuff Marks on your Floor Shoes

As you know in Austin, TX and any real estate market really, first impressions matter to the Buyer!  Don’t let scuff marks on your floors distract Buyers and cost you money!   Instead try these cheap, quick fixes.

1. Fight Fire with Fire!  Black-soled shoes may have made streaks on your tile floor, but rubber-soled sneakers can remove them. Simply tie on your sneakers and buff the marks with the point of your sole.

…It’s OK if you can’t resist attempting the Moon Walk while you’re at it.

2. Aw Sheet!  Have hardwood floors? Lift scuff marks by using a dryer sheet (even a used one will do). Simply rub at the marks, making small, circular motions.

3. Alcohol (Rubbing not Drinking)! Vinyl floor looking streaky? Dab a little rubbing alcohol on a clean white cloth and wipe. The marks will disappear without damaging the floor’s finish.

I’m a professional Realtor, not a professional flooring cleaner, so if you’re unsure, please check with a flooring specialist before trying any of these tactics.
