Brick flooring can give your space a charming, rustic look. It adds character to the overall look of your house. Your lawn is the gateway to your interiors. Bright and clean brick flooring can help you make a great first impression on your guest. What’s more, brick flooring is very easy to maintain. If you use these simple yet useful tips to clean your brick flooring, you can keep their bright colour intact for longer. 

1) Use a Vacuum Cleaner

Your vacuum cleaner is as good for the outdoor area as it is for the indoors. Keep your brick flooring dirt and dust-free by vacuuming it. Since the lawn and patio tend to collect dust faster, you will have to use your vacuum cleaner more frequently in these areas. 

2) Use Vinegar

This common kitchen ingredient is a cleaning wizard. Before you mop your brick flooring with water, add a cup of vinegar to it. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the results.

3) Make Your Own Cleaning Solution 

If you want to use a stronger cleaning solution on your brick flooring, you can make it yourself. Simply add 1 tbsp. of baking soda and 1 tbsp. of a dishwashing liquid to a bucket of warm water. You can try using Vim dishwashing liquid for this. Add 1 cup of vinegar to enhance the effectiveness of the solution. Spread the solution on the flooring space and leave it for 5 minutes. Baking soda and vinegar will react with the stubborn dirt deposited on your flooring and loosen it. Now, wipe it clean with a string or scrub brush mop.

4) Use a Water Hose

Pressurised water is an effective cleaning solution, especially for cleaning the dirt accumulated in the grouts between bricks.   

Cleaning your brick flooring is no longer an exhausting task.
