Hardwood flooring can be a beautiful and durable upgrade from carpeting or tile in your home that often comes at a premium. Hardwood floors should be cleaned routinely to keep them looking their best. Here are some tips on maintaining your hardwood floors.
Prevention of scratches in high traffic areas can keep the wood looking new. Think about putting down floor mats or rugs in entryways and pet areas to avoid scratches. Furniture feet should also be covered in floor protectors to avoid scratches from moving furniture.
- Floors should be cleaned of debris, dust and dirt a couple times a week. A vacuuming and mopping regimen is suggested. Make sure you use a hardwood floor attachment on the vacuum to avoid scratching the floors.
- Floors should also be deep cleaned routinely to get rid of built up grunge. After vacuuming away the dust and debris, mop the floors with a liquid hardwood floor cleaner. Then, rinse the mop in clean water and mop off the liquid cleaner from the floor. The water should then be dried with a clean dry mop or towel.
