Routine Care & Maintenance For Your Hardwood Flooring
Sweeping, vacuuming and dry mopping are activities that should be completed on a regular basis in order to keep your hardwood looking great. How often you do these things is largely dependent on the foot traffic within the room, but generally, you’ll want to be sweeping almost every day to ensure that debris is not evident on your hardwood. Should you decide to use a vacuum on your hardwood, you’ll want to obtain one without a beater bar as this can scratch and harm your hardwood.
You may also opt for a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution on your hardwood floors should the dry clean not be cutting it.
Placing doormats and encouraging guests to take off their shoes before entering your home is a quick and easy way to help keep your hardwood looking pristine for years to come.
One of the many benefits of hardwood flooring is that spills and messes do not usually leave a lasting impression on your hardwood flooring.
Should you spill a liquid or create some type of mess on your hardwood flooring, simply wipe the substance away in a timely manner with a cloth or towel and go on with your day. If the spill persists then consult your manufacturer for an approved cleaning solution.
