Most households have multiple different floor surfaces, from lino through to deep pile carpets and rugs. Having a variety of surfaces adds character to a home. However, it can add steps to the household clean and you might be wondering how best to clean each one? Ewbank has a range of floorcare products which can tackle each floor type. Read on for our handy guide!

Hard floor

The term ‘hard floor’ encompasses a variety of floor surfaces, including:

  • Wooden floorboards
  • Tiles
  • Laminate
  • Vinyl

The Chilli 4 Combi Vacuum is equipped for all said surfaces and can even be purchased with an additional, specially designed hard floor head for maximum coverage.

Tackling tiles, laminate and vinyl

The Dual Head Spray Mop has a microfibre flat head to help collect any small debris on kitchen floor, or laminate.

As for tiles, the SteamDynamo comes with an abundance of attachments to make light work of the dirt and grease which can collect around flooring and skirting boards. Using steam gives a quality clean without the need for harsh chemicals, which is safer for everyone in the household.

For laminate, one of the most popular surfaces in the UK, the EP170 Floor Polisher polishes and buffs floors to refresh their finish and restore the high-shine. It is a lightweight product with butterfly handle for ease of use.


Carpet can be short pile or long pile. The SurgePlus 2-in-2 Cordless Stick Vacuum was designed with carpets in mind! With a versatile brush bar the SurgePlus is suitable for all types of carpet. It is powerful enough to extract material deep rooted into the pile without pulling out any of the fabric. It comes with a crevice tool for hard and soft surfaces, ideal for sofas, skirting board or ceilings.

If pet hair is an issue, the MOTION Pet Upright vacuum comes equipped with an air powered turbo pet brush, capable of extracting hair regardless of the pile.

Tackling a soiled carpet

Your vacuum will likely require a helping hand if something has been spilt and has stained the carpet. To achieve a clean which could be mistaken for a professional job, the Cascade Carpet Shampooer could be the answer. The Cascade is capable of accessing all the deep fibres, so that the carpet looks brand new.
