How to maintain hardwood floors

Choosing the perfect wood flooring is an exciting opportunity, but maintenance over the years is essential to maintain the intended lifespan of the products. In today's post, we're going to tell you more about how to keep your hardwood for the best results long term.

Wood flooring requires little maintenance

If your wood floors are professionally installed, you’ll have very few maintenance requirements to keep up with, especially if you have the suitable species and finish type. Still, regular maintenance and care play a vital role in the longevity of your floors.

Sweeping or vacuuming daily with the proper tools is a great way to remove dirt and debris, especially in high-traffic areas. You can follow this with a damp mop, using warm water, or any one of a variety of commercial cleaners made specifically for wood floors.

Area rugs and runners can also be utilized in high-traffic areas to keep dirt, debris, and footfall from the surface of your hardwood. Also, make sure to use pads beneath furniture legs to alleviate the possibility of denting or scratching.

If you have bigger messes or need special attention to specific spots, be sure to contact us for professional wood floor cleaning. We’ll be happy to discuss all your options and offer expert advice.
