Hardwood floors are a great option for homes all across America. They are a beautiful option that comes in a wide variety. You can have a sleek natural wood finish or a more modern grey stain. Whatever option you choose you need to be prepared to take care of them. They are going to have some wear and tear from every day use as well as if you have pets. Pets nails can scratch the coating on the hardwood and furniture that is pulled across the floors can gauge them as well. Sun spots can cause fading on the wood and moisture is a real no no when taking care of your wood floors. The moisture not only can damage and warp the wood but it can cause mold and mildew to grow as well. You want to have a plan on the best ways to care for your hardwood floors so they look their best.
Silver State Floor Restoration Lists Steps Needed To Clean & Care For Your Hardwood Floors
Protect Hardwood Floors: Once you have your hardwood floors installed in your home you may need to do some updates to furniture. The legs of your furniture especially if it is wood or metal can cause damage to the floors. You want to add pads to the furniture and try to not scoot them around as often. This will protect the floors from damage. You can also be sure that your pets nails are trimmed often to avoid some of the small dings that often occur. Lastly be sure that if there is a spill on the wood you take care of it as soon as possible. This will help stop staining to the wood but also stop the moisture from soaking in causing damage.
Sweep Hardwood Floors Every Day: When you have wood floors even small specs of dust can show up quite easily. The dust, hair and dander that is found throughout the house can cause the floors to look dirty. It also means that those particles can act as an abrasive which will cause scratching to the floors. That is why it is important to have the floors swept at least one time a day. You can use a standard broom or a mop that is intended for dusting. This removes the dirt and dust and leaves the floors looking great.
Use an Effective Hardwood Floor Cleaner: You can also on a weekly basis clean the floors better. This means after you sweep you take a cleaner that is recommended for hardwood floors and use it to clean the floors. This may take a little bit of time but is necessary to get any extra sticky spots of messes that won’t come off with sweeping alone.
