Hardwood flooring in Woodstock, GA from Cherokee Floor Covering

How do you maintain hardwood floors?

Choosing the perfect hardwood flooring is an exciting time for your household, as these floors come with immense beauty, durability, and lifespan. But keeping them cleaned and maintained is essential to that lifespan, so that we will discuss your options in today's post.

Maintaining your hardwood

Both solid and engineered hardwood offers extensive durability, and when properly maintained, can give you the full extent of their expected lifespan. From solid wood, you will see a lifespan that can exceed 100 years, while engineered wood offers you an average of 30 years.

Be sure to sweep and use a dust mop daily to rid your floors of loose dirt and debris that can mar the surface of your flooring. You can also utilize area rugs and runners to catch some of this debris, keeping your area much cleaner and more well-protected.

Clean up spills, dampness, humidity, and footprints as soon as possible, and be sure to use only cleaners recommended by the manufacturer. Also, make sure any cleaners or tools you use are entirely non-abrasive, as this can scratch and damage your floor's surface as well.

If you notice a great deal of wear on your floors, you might be ready to schedule a refinishing service. To find out more about cleaning or refinishing, be sure to visit us when you are in the area.
