Care & Maintenance

Keeping Your Hardwood Clean

It is important to follow a protective care and maintenance routine for your new hardwood floors. Invest in entry mats and doormats, and remove all outdoor shoes before walking across your hardwood flooring. To protect your hardwood floors from dents or indentations heavy furniture can leave over time, buy floor protectors.

Daily care and maintenance could include sweeping or dry mopping your hardwood flooring. Make sure to check with your manufacturer’s care and maintenance guide before caring for your flooring. If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution and follow their guidelines.

Hire a local professional floor cleaning company if you need a deep clean. For recommendations, speak with any of our store representatives!

Hardwood Spills and Stains

Life happens on our hardwood flooring, and the occasional spills and stains are inevitable. Educating yourself on removing common household stains without damaging your flooring is important. Most common spills like liquids or pet accidents will wipe away clean, especially on hardwood floors with stain and scuff-resistant technology built into the hardwood finish. Address liquid spills immediately, as most hardwood flooring is not water-resistant. For other common stains like wax residue or nail polish, consult the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Preventative Hardwood Care

Be mindful of preventative maintenance for your new hardwood flooring; frequently trim your pet’s nails or remove your high heels and heavy boots before walking across the floor. Since hardwood floors are sensitive to the indoor climate of your home, use a humidifier during the dry heating season and run a dehumidifier during inclement weather.

With layered looks in style, add an area rug on top of your hardwood flooring to protect and enhance the interior design.
