Hardwood | Maintenance

Congratulation on your new flooring purchase! One of the many benefits of hardwood flooring is the low-maintenance upkeep. We would like to share a few tips on how to best preserve the beauty and life of your hardwood.

Hardwood Maintenance Tips

  •  Vacuum or sweep your floor with a microfiber dust mop regularly
    • Do not use a vacuum with a beater bar as it can scratch the hardwood
  • Use hardwood cleaners on a monthly basis; Don’t assume that any household cleaner will be safe for your hardwood floors
  • Wipe up spills immediately with a soft cloth; water is not a friend to hardwood
  • For stubborn stains like chewing gum or candle wax try using a credit card
  • Stop dirt at the door by using mats outside and in
  • Consider felt or rubber pads for the bottom of heavy furniture
