Daily Hardwood Care & Maintenance
Hardwood is a durable and low-maintenance flooring option. However, some basic care is required to ensure that your flooring continues to look great and function well. With hardwood, the key is investing in a quality broom and putting it to use on a daily basis. It's that simple! By actively working to remove dirt, dust, and other debris, you can prolong the lifespan of your hardwood and prevent scratching and scraping. You may also want to encourage guests to remove their shoes before walking on your hardwood flooring. Placing entry mats at the doors of your home can also be effective.
Dealing With Hardwood Spills & Stains
One of the many benefits of hardwood is that for flooring owners, spills & stains are not cause for concern. That is so long as you address them in a timely manner. When and if a spill takes place, simply find yourself a clean towel and wipe away the substance. There's not much more to it than that. If the spill is left on the hardwood too long then it could seep into the subflooring, potentially causing long-term damage and proving costly. When in doubt about how to handle a spill or mess on your hardwood flooring, you can consult your manufacturer.
