Denisemomof4 Posted December 31, 2011 Share Posted December 31, 2011 why didn't I do this sooner? *LOVE* *LOVE* *LOVE* having no carpets!!! I will NEVER go back!!! I do have a couple of questions though. We have all maple flooring. I had two 9 x 12 carpets to separate a huge open space. It kind of made them their separate room. Anyway, when we lifted the carpets, the maple flooring is very dark where the carpets were. Do you think that will lighten? Our other maple floors are so light compared to that, they almost look like bare wood! Also - vacuuming is a BREEZE!!! Where I used to vaccum at least once per day, now I only vacuumed once this WEEK!!!!!!!!!!! YOWZA!!! I use my dust mop daily and have the downstairs dust mopped in NO time. Those of you with all wood floors, do you even NEED a vacuum? I'm thinking to dust mop daily or twice per day and a damp mop once per week will suffice. Opinions? We do have two large dogs, two very small, and birds, so we have a lot of dust. The dust mop does seem to keep things quite tidied up. I can not WAIT to remove the carpet from our room. I have decided that I never, ever want carpet again! Dh wants carpets on the stairs. I hate that idea. Are carpet treads on stairs the only option to keep them non-slipping? Also, do you vacuum those and just sweep around them? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
