“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Pledge. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating.
When we bought our first home I really didn’t have a preference for wood or carpeted floors. I had grown up in a home with carpet so I just assumed that would probably be what type of flooring we would end up with. Well as fate would have it our first home was an older home with real hardwood throughout. At first I thought that having a wood floor was going to be a pain but after having multiple pets and two messy kids I quickly realized that wood is the way to go.
With wood floors I am able to clean up messes more easily than I would be able to with carpeted floors. The only downside to wood floors is that EVERYTHING shows up. When the dogs come in from outside and their paws are wet, you can bet there will be tracks throughout my house. The same goes with my kids who are notorious for tracking in dirt and mud. I try to stay on top of it but I’ll tell you it is quite a chore mopping the entire house and can take a nice chunk time.
For the next month I will be taking the Pledge-to-Pledge challenge as a Pledge Ambassador and using the different Pledge Wood FloorCare products throughout my home. You all be get to a chance to see my floors before using the Pledge FloorCare product and then pictures of them afterwards. Here is a sneak peek of a before and after photo!
I am really excited about this challenge because with the holidays quickly approaching I will need to get my house as clean as I can for company. There is nothing more embarrassing than having a dingy look floor when you have guests over!
Today while the kids were at school I took a few photos of my floors before using Pledge, here is how they look.
