Hardwood is beautiful, but it does require some special care and maintenance to keep it looking and performing its very best for many years to come. Follow these tips from our flooring experts!
Daily care & maintenance
Sweep, vacuum, and dry mop your hardwood flooring on a regular basis. Make sure to check with your manufacturer’s care and maintenance guide, in addition to their list of approved vacuum cleaners, before caring for your new floors. If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution and follow their guidelines. If you find your floors need a periodical deep cleaning, always hire a local professional floor cleaning company. For recommendations, speak with one of our representatives!
Dealing with spills
Occasional spills and stains are inevitable, especially if you have pets or kids. Most liquid spills will wipe away simply with a cloth. You'll want to do this as quickly as possible, as hardwood flooring is not water-resistant. Other spills, such as wax or nail polish, are more complex. For these, you'll want to consult your manufacturer's care guidelines. If using cleaning products, make sure they are safe for hardwood and follow instructions.
