Perhaps most exciting of all, the floors leave your socks a pure white when you slide around barefoot! But then life happens. Kids and dogs happen. And even if you are in the blissful age of retirement, dirt still somehow finds its way into your home and the floors don’t sparkle like they did the day you got the keys to your new home. It is the sad reality of homeownership – keeping your home clean!
