How To Care For Solid Hardwood Floors

(By the Hardwood Manufacturers Association)

 Solid hardwood floors are among the easiest to keep clean. Protect their warmth and character with simple, everyday cleaning techniques. It’s important to know how to prevent damage to your solid hardwood floors.

 

Prevention

 DIRT and GRIT : Dirt, grit and sand are your hardwood floor’s worst enemies.They act like sandpaper on the finish, causing scratches, dents and dulling and finish wear. Place floor mats at entrances to trap dirt and prevent damage. 

WATER AND OTHER SPILLS : Standing water can warp a poorly finished hardwood floor and can damage the finish. Simply wipe up all spills as they happen. 

HARD CLEANERS : Avoid oil soaps. They can build up and create problems when it’s time to put a maintenance coat on the floor. Instead, neutral pH cleaners made specifically for wood floors are recommended.

FURNITURE : Lift the furniture to move it --- avoid dragging. Felt contacts under the legs will help prevent scratches.

DENTS : Vacuum with a brush attachment -- don’t use vacuums with beater bars.

 SUN : Direct sun can discolor your hardwood floor. Close curtains and blinds or add sheer drapes to protect from the sun’s intense UV rays.

 

Regular Care

 SWEEP : Brooms with fine, exploded ends trap dust and grit effectively.

VACUUM : Canister vacuums with special bare floor attachments are the surest way to get rid of all the dirt and dust.

 DUST MOP : Use a good padded mop and a hardwood flooring cleaner--- Spray the cleaner onto the floor and clean by mopping.

 

With proper and regular care, solid hardwood flooring can last you a lifetime and a return on your investment will clearly be realized. Make sure that from the very beginning your hardwood flooring is installed by a professional wood flooring installer. This will ensure that the beauty, function and integrity of the flooring is not compromised.
