Looks fine to me, I´ll leave possible corrections to others. If any, would be not much.

In 5-) Jane said, "I can't help you because I am sweapping the floor now.", "sweapping" caught my eye, it got me wondering if it didn´t mean "swapping".

I couldn´t give you the vote, because I spent my three-vote share for the day. :(

Acho que a intenção foi dizer "sweeping the floor".

If swapping the floor it would like this:

If anything happens at the party like booze or dance you need not to e get worried about the cleaning, because this laminate flooring gives you the facility to clean all the dust and other materials by just swapping the floor. You can also use a wet cloth to clean your flooring very easily.

And sweeping would be like this:
