Use acetone-base nailpolish remover on the stains like oil-paint, ink, nailpolish. Use it with a cotton ball and rub the stains. It can help to remove any spot fro fabric.

Buff the Floor

To get best result, use buffing rags. A microfiber mop is a smart solution. The swivel heads of microfiber mop help to move every nook and corner of your floor to pick the dust particles easily. It soaks less water compared to the regular mops.

Protect the Floor

A prevention is always better than cure. So taking a few precautions will keep your floor evergreen for a longer time. Do not expose it to the sun directly. Use thick window covers that obstructs the direct sun ray coming in. Do not open the window in inclement weather. Keep it protected from rain drops and fogs.
