Wood Floor Maintenance Tips

Dust and bacteria settled on your floors wears them down and increase the likelihood of scratching. Keep floors clean with a light sweep at least every other day. If using a vacuum on your hardwood floors, be sure to choose a vacuum with hard floor settings and a soft brush. Vacuuming and mopping should be done about once a week to keep the dust and dirt at bay.

Prevent Damage to Your Floors

It’s wise to invest in mats or rugs that can be placed at the entryways of your home. This is a simple way to collect dirt from people’s shoes. Choose rugs without an adhesive or abrasive bottom.

Don’t Use Water on Your Floors

Never use water to clean your hardwood floors. Water can deteriorate the wood. Most stores carry a special wood floor cleaner that can be sprayed and wiped away with a soft cloth. Know the finish of your floors (for example, polyurethane or wax) so you can choose the right cleaner.

Maintain Polyurethane Finishes

Floors with a polyurethane finish will need special attention. Depending on the amount of foot traffic, these floors should be inspected and re-coated every 3-5 years.

Avoid Stains at All Costs

Stains are the biggest enemy to your hardwood floors. This is hard to prevent, but do all you can to keep tough substances from being spilled on your floors. When stains do happen, rubbing alcohol and steel wool should do the trick. However, this will leave a mark on the wood and damage to the stain. You’ll need to polish your floors in that spot.

Use Area Rugs

Cover high traffic areas with large rugs. Not only will this prevent damage to your hardwood floors, but these rugs can add a nice touch to the style of your room.

Refinish or Resurface Your Wood Floor

Eventually, you’re going to have to restore the old flooring. When that time comes for you, we hope that you consider using either of our hardwood floor refinishing or resurfacing services.
