Basic Hardwood Care

A significant part of hardwood's appeal is the lack of required care and maintenance. With that said, to ensure that your hardwood looks great as the years pass, you'll want to maintain your floors on a regular basis. 

For daily hardwood care, sweeping is essential. When you sweep, you work to remove dirt, dust, and other debris present on your hardwood flooring. These particles and substances can scratch your floors and cause the hardwood to lose its luster. Plan on sweeping every day or so to keep your hardwood looking its best. 

You may damp mop your floors, but be wary of using too much water as it could cause warping. Make sure the mop is damp, not wet. 

It is also recommended that you always remove your shoes before walking on your hardwood floors. Entry mats are also effective in terms of limiting the amount of dirt that enters your home.

DRY Messes

Use a broom to remove any solid spills or dry messes. Sweep every day or so to limit the amount of dirt on your hardwood floors.

Spills are not a cause for concern so long as you wipe them up in a timely manner. The longer you wait, the more likely damage is to occur to your hardwood or the sub flooring beneath.

Entry mats can help to ensure that dirt and outside debris does not enter your home. This low cost investment could prolong the lifespan of your hardwood floors.
