Maintenance and Care Tips for Exotic Hardwood Floors

In order to keep your exotic hardwood floors nice and spiffy, it is essential to stay on top of maintenance and cleaning. Some tips and tricks include:

  • Maintain humidity levels to avoid the expansion and contraction of the floorboards.
  • Refrain from dragging furniture across the floor to avoid scratching.
  • Use hardwood floor cleaners instead of oil-based cleaners since they could damage the floorboards.
  • Vacuum any dust or dirt off the floor regularly.
