Daily Care & Maintenance
One of the major benefits of hardwood floors is how easy they are maintain. Following the tips and best practices outlined below to eep your hardwood floors looking great.
Investing in a broom and putting it to use on a regular basis is the easiest way to keep your hardwood floors looking sublime. By working to ensure that dirt, dust, and other debris are not present, you can guarantee that your floors do not get scratched or take on a grungy look. Placing mats at the entrances of your home can also help with this.
You may also consider upgrading your window treatments to ensure that your hardwood floors do not fade over time.
Dealing With Hardwood Spills & Stains
Hardwood flooring is not vulnerable to spills and stains, so long as you act fast when messes occur. When a liquid spill occurs on your hardwood, grab a towel or cloth and absorb the substance immediately. The longer you wait, the more likely the substance will drip into your subflooring.
You can mop hardwood, but do so using as little water as possible as your hardwood could contract and expand with moisture.
