Hardwood Flooring Maintenance and Cleaning

Posted by on September 11, 2013

If you take care of your hardwood floors, they will take care of you. And hardwood floor maintenance is actually easier than you may think. A few minutes here and there throughout the week is all you need to keep your hardwood floors sparkling for years to come.

Hardwood Floor Cleaning and Maintenance

  • For starters, sweeping up dirt, dust, and other debris daily is a good way to keep your floors clean and scratch free.
  • Once or twice a week, vacuum using a soft bristle brush attachment.
  • Using a “dry” damp mop, to clean your hardwood floors. Too much water can be a bad thing.
  • If excess water does find its way onto your hardwood floor, Do your best to get rid of that water as quickly as possible using a soft towel.
  • Consider using carpet runners or area rugs in high traffic areas to cut down on wear.
  • If you do use runners or area rugs, be sure to vacuum them frequently so dirt and debris do not filter down onto the hardwood flooring.
  • Do not drag furniture or anything else across your hardwood floors. Instead, consider using furniture pads.
  • Follow manufacturer recommendations when treating scratches.
  • To help bring your hardwood floors back to life, try waxing and buffing.
  • Have your hardwood floor refinished if they are past the scope of normal cleaning and maintenance.
