Hardwood Flooring Care & Maintenance

Your new hardwood flooring is an investment as well as a work of art, so it’s essential to help it age well with proper care and maintenance! There are a few things to keep in mind, and you’ll need to incorporate them into your regular care routine. Learn more below.

Regular care

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 store 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.
