How to Care for Your Hardwood Floor
Hardwood flooring is incredibly low maintenance. By following this guide you can help guarantee that your hardwood stays looking its best.
Start by putting out entry mats and doormats at all of the entrances to your home. This will help ensure that dirt and other debris don't enter your home. You'll also want to remove all outdoor shoes before walking across your hardwood flooring.
Preventative Maintenance for Your Hardwood Floor
Everyday care and maintenance for hardwood flooring includes sweeping, vacuuming, and dry mopping. Make sure to check with your manufacturer’s care and maintenance guide, in addition to their list of approved vacuum cleaners, before caring for your new flooring.
If your hardwood flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution and follow their guidelines.
Dealing with Spills & Stains
With hardwood flooring, stains will generally wipe away clean, especially on hardwood floors with stain and scuff resistant technology built into the hardwood finished.
Wipe away liquid spills immediately, as hardwood flooring is not water-resistant. When in doubt, consult the manufacturer's guidelines.
