Living & Dinning Room Maintenance

By Room

In many homes, the living room and the dining room are two spaces where much of the household’s entertaining takes place. These are the rooms that welcome guests to enjoy the hospitality of the residents. As such, it makes the most sense to keep these two rooms in peak condition, so that guests may be made comfortable when welcomed into the home.

One way to assure that these rooms in the house stay fit for company is to have a yearly maintenance plan. Flooring in these rooms could fall into disrepair if not regularly maintained.

If your living room or dining room has carpeting, you may find that over time small spots of damage appear, such as burns, holes, or tears. Minor damage to a carpet does not necessarily warrant carpet replacement. Small holes can be patched with a small piece of matching carpet. If you catch these small holes early, they will not expand into large holes, necessitating a whole new carpet be laid down. Patching a burn in a carpet will also allow you to avoid carpet replacement. Patching a tear will keep the household’s inhabitants from catching a foot on the tear and getting injured.

If your room has hardwood floors, keeping a regular schedule of maintenance will allow them to last for decades. Through regular use, hardwood floors can become scratched, stained, and dented. Minor damage can be repaired several ways depending on the finish. Small dents can also be raised during a maintenance visit. A large water stain can be repaired by refinishing the area and matching the rest of the floor.

Yearly examination of the floors in these rooms could prevent further damage that would require greater rehabilitation to repair. The Homestar Group can keep these rooms fit for company all year long.
