Hardwood Maintenance

One of the main benefits of hardwood flooring is that they are low maintenance floors that require only a little more maintenance than sweeping on a regular basis to remove dirt. Cleaners are only needed when cleaning spills, removing scuff marks or major cleanings like spring cleaning.

  • Place walk-off mats at every door that are regularly maintained
  • You can and should vacuum your floors daily
  • Use the correct floor cleaner
  • Don’t assume that any household cleaner should be safe for your hardwood floors
  • Cleaners should be applied with a terry cloth head mop
  • Less is more… use only a small amount of cleaner
  • Only use wax on floors with a wax finish
  • Wipe up spills immediately
  • For stubborn stains like chewing gum or candle wax try using a credit card
  • Use technical support
