Daily Hardwood Care
The great thing about hardwood flooring is the general lack of maintenance that is required to keep it looking great. With minimal upkeep, your hardwood flooring will look great for many years.
The first step to maintaining your hardwood flooring is to get a broom and sweep your new floor regularly. Establishing a routine for sweeping, will help to pick up grains of dirt, dust, and other particles that can scratch and damage your hardwoods. A vacuum cleaner without a beater bar can be helpful in between planks and other hard-to-reach areas.
One of the main benefits of hardwood flooring is that spills, stains, and no big deal! Should a spill occur on your hardwood flooring, simply wipe up the mess in a timely manner to avoid any lingering damage. While hardwood is difficult to stain, liquids can find their way into the cracks and crevasses of hardwood flooring, causing damage to the subfloor. Clean up all spills quickly, regardless of the type of flooring in your home.
