Maintaining Your Hardwood Flooring

After installing hardwood flooring in your home, you will want to ensure that it looks just as new as the day you had the flooring installed as long as possible. Fortunately, there are measures you can take to uphold your flooring’s value and keep its condition everlasting.

Hardwood Flooring Maintenance Tips

There are several ways to maintain your hardwood flooring, including:

  • Regularly dusting and cleaning: use mops (preferably flat mops over string mops) to clean floors, and avoid using water, vinegar, wax, and steam cleaners. We recommend using wood floor mops manufactured by Bona®
  • Avoid wearing high heels: these fashionable shoes can pose a scratch and gouge risk to your floors.
  • Maintain comfortable temperature: humidity can damage floors.
  • Clean up any spills immediately: this prevents permanent staining
  • Use furniture pads for any furniture pieces on floors: this prevents scratches.
