Taking Care of Your Hardwood Floors

Published on August 1st, 2018

Maybe you invested your money into making sure your hardwood flooring in Plainfield was top-notch or you inherited hardwood floors when moving into your new home or apartment, the bottom line is that you want to preserve them. Taking preventative steps is a great way to stop wear-and-tear from occurring in the first place. Keep your hardwood looking like new with these cleaning and preservation tips.

Cleaning Your Hardwood Floors

Vacuuming on a regular basis and using a moist microfiber pad to mop are two helpful cleaning techniques to keep dirt and grime out of your floors. If left alone, dirt could end up digging into your floors and causing damage. Encourage guests to take their shoes off before entering or purchase a floor mat for the purpose of wiping shoes off upon entering. You may be tempted to turn to cleaners to keep floors clean, but many cleaners contain substances such as ammonia, vinegar, wax and oil that could end up dulling the top coat of your flooring in Plainfield.

Hardwood Floors Preservation Techniques

Putting felt pats on the bottom of your furniture’s legs can help prevent your floors from developing scratches. If you have a pet, make sure to keep his or her toenails properly trimmed so their paws don’t cause any damage. You also may notice that your floor’s finish has become dull over time; to combat this, lightly sand your floors and apply a fresh coat of polyurethane.
