Hardwood maintenance do’s and don’tsWood floor maintenance is quick and easy. Routine cleaning involves sweeping, dust mopping, or vacuuming using the bare floor setting to remove dust and dirt. Clean spills immediately with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Don’t use wet mops or steam mops, which will damage the finish or even the wood over long periods of time.To avoid scratches, place breathable throw rugs at all entrances, put floor protector pads on the bottoms of the legs of any furniture that comes into direct contact with your floors, and avoid walking on the floors with sports cleats or high-heel shoes.When the floor begins to look a little dull, use a wood floor cleaner as directed, and only use products recommended by your contractor, flooring manufacturer, or finish manufacturer. Using the wrong type of cleaning product could damage the finish, and possibly the wood.If you have questions about the care and maintenance of your wood floors or about hardwood cleaners, give us a call we are always happy to help.###Source: National Wood Flooring Association
