Essential Care Tips for Long-Lasting Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors are an investment in your home's beauty and value. Protect that investment with a regular care routine that includes sweeping, vacuuming, and preventative maintenance.

  • Doormats: Place doormats at all entryways to collect dirt and grime before they reach your beautiful hardwoods.
  • Furniture Pads: Protect your floors from indentations left by heavy furniture by using furniture pads.
  • Regular Sweeping/Vacuuming: Regularly sweep or vacuum your hardwood floors to remove dust, dirt, and debris that can scratch the surface over time.

Daily Cleaning for Hardwood Floors

Dirt and soil can accumulate on your hardwood floors over time, dulling their shine. Here's how to maintain a beautiful luster with daily cleaning:

  • Regular Sweeping: Use a soft-bristled broom to sweep up any loose dirt or debris that might scratch your floors.
  • Dry/Damp Mopping: For a deeper clean, use a microfiber mop with a solution of warm water and a hardwood floor cleaner specifically designed for your floor type. Avoid using excessive moisture, as it can warp the wood.

Addressing Hardwood Floor Spills

Spills can damage your hardwood floors if not addressed promptly. Here's how to handle them:

  • Blot Up Spills Immediately: Act fast! Use a clean, absorbent cloth to blot up spills without spreading the liquid.
  • Damp Cloth Cleaning: For tougher spills, use a damp cloth to wipe the affected area. Avoid using excessive water, as it can warp the wood.
  • Manufacturer's Guide: If you're unsure about the appropriate cleaning solution for your specific hardwood floor type, consult your manufacturer's guide or contact Classic Flooring Center for expert advice.
