How to care for your hardwood floor
Hardwood floors are beautiful, but they do need some love now and then. A quick weekly sweep will keep them looking their best! Vacuuming with the beater bar turned off is a great way to deep-clean your floor without damaging its natural luster or fibers - just make sure you use an eco-friendly product recommended by those who know what's good for wood destroying fungus growths on furniture.
Steps you can take to maintain the beauty of your wood floors:
- To keep your wood floors looking new, avoid using vinyl or tile cleaning products on them. Self-polishing acrylic waxes can make the surface become slippery and dull quickly in some cases.
- Cleaning your floor is easy with the right tools. A mop paired with a machine washable, microfiber pad will get you dirt and dust clean while also keeping it from getting scratched or damaged by Electrostatic action that attracts common household allergens like microparticles.
- To keep your hardwood floors looking like new, avoid using water and vinegar-based cleaners or soap based products on them. These actually dull the finish over time while leaving residue that will stick around even after you’ve cleaned with dish detergent! Also don't forget about steam cleaning– Make sure no steam comes out during cleaning sessions either - it can lead to cupping and this will only ruin more valuable items.
- Keep your threshold clean by using throw rugs at doorways to help prevent debris from being tracked in and scratching up the floor. Note that rubber-backed or non ventilated mats could possibly damage your floor.
- If you want to protect your floor from water damage, don't wet-mop it. The constant moisture can dull the finish and leave behind an unwanted residue that discolor even more than before!
- To avoid streaks and drying out, wipe up spills immediately with a slightly dampened towel.
- To prevent scuffing and scratching of the flooring, use felt protectors under furniture legs. Be sure to replace these often as dirt can get trapped on them which will cause unnecessary weariness in your floors over time!
- High heels are not known for their damaging impact on the foot, but this is an extreme example. A 125-pound woman walking in these kinds of conditions with exposed heel nails can exert up to 8,000 pounds per square inch! The result? Dents and scratches all over your beautiful floors. Furniture makers recommend against using sports shoes when coming into contact with hardwood surfaces because there's always some kind if traction being lost due them being made from rubber mats or other synthetic materials.
- When moving furniture, be careful not to slide it on wood floors. It's best if you pick up the heavy items and take them somewhere else for safer transportation.
- Place an area rug in the kitchen and at the sink to protect your wood floors from dirty dishes and wet counters.
- Humidity is the key to minimizing cracks and gaps in your home. In winter, use a humidifier throughout your house so that you can avoid those pesky problems.
- Hardwood floors are a beautiful and lasting fixture in any home, but they do face some challenges. One of the most common issues with hardwoods is color loss due to exposure over time; this can be prevented by using window treatments that will shade your floor from UV rays so you don’t see those unsightly changes happen before their eyes.
- The hardwood floor is a beautiful, durable surface that can withstand even pets and their destructive habits. To keep it looking like new all year long: trimming nails regularly; making sure food bowls don't sit in liquid or have anything sharp near them (like tinsel); never walk on waxed floors with worn shoes.
- Love and take care of your floors and similarly, your floor will love you back.
