Keep Your Hardwood Looking New
PRACTICE PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
Even if you don’t have a lot of spare time to devote to carpet cleaning and care, there are some quick and easy tasks that will do wonders to protect the look and longevity of your hardwood flooring.
Preventative maintenance will go a long way to keep your hardwood looking as good as new for years to come. Ask family members and guests to remove their shoes before walking across your floor. Also invest in some doormats to trap dirt and particles instead of tracking them throughout your home.
Lastly, use floor protectors and wide-load-bearing leg bases/rollers to minimize indentations and scratches from heavy objects. As a rule, the heavier the object, the wider the floor protector should be.
HARDWOOD CARE TIPS
Your hardwood floor upkeep should include sweeping, vacuuming, and dry mopping. 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 flooring.
