How to maintain hardwood floors

Every hardwood flooring company provides care instructions that include "do's and don'ts." The latter is just as important as the former. For example, here are a few 'don'ts' from Mohawk: avoid walking on your wood floor with spiked heels; don't wet mop or vacuum with a beater bar; and avoid opening curtains or shutters to allow direct sunlight to the room, which can cause fading. Flooring specialists at Bisek Interiors in Montgomery, Minnesota, are ready to provide any assistance you need with maintaining your hardwood floors. However, the following 'do's are essential.

Basic maintenance

You should clean weekly, or more often if necessary, with a soft bristle broom, a dust mop, or a vacuum cleaner with suction only. Most engineered and solid hardwood flooring can be deep cleaned by damp mopping with a liquid hardwood floor cleaner. It's important to note that most wood will gradually age when it's not covered. Thus, it's helpful to rotate rugs and furniture periodically.

Preventive ?maintenance?

Wood flooring does not hang onto allergens or dirt. So hardwood floor maintenance is quick and straightforward when you are proactive. For example, if you place mats inside and outside entryways, you reduce the time needed for routine cleaning. Also, since gritty dirt can scratch wood, you reduce possible damage to the floor when you wipe your feet before entering the house.
