Floor Care Tips

Today’s wood floors are easier to care for than ever.  Here are a few tips to help you keep yours looking beautiful for years.

AFTER COMPLETION:

Wait two weeks after your new wood floor is installed before covering it with rugs.  This gives the finish time to set properly.

PROTECT HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS:

Use tracking mats at exterior doors, in front of sink and refrigerators, and in other high traffic areas.

AVOID SCRATCHES:

Use felt pads under chairs and other furniture so that when the furniture moves, it doesn’t scratch your wood floor.  Don’t wax the bottoms of chair legs, the wax won’t protect your floor the way felt pads do.

CLEAN YOUR WOOD FLOOR REGULARLY:

On a regular basis, dust mop or vacuum your floors with a hardwood floor attachment only.  A product such as Swiffer is a good easy way of cleaning your floor.

SOME DEFINITE DON’TS:

Never use paste wax, silicone-based polish, Murphy’s oil soap, solvent or pine based cleaners on your wood floor.  These products can actually make your floor difficult to clean and create problems when your floor needs professional attention.

WHEN IT’S TIME TO REFINISH:

Your hardwood floor should be recoated with its original finish shows signs of wear, but before it’s worn down to bare wood.  Once your floor has worn down to bare wood, it will stain easily and may require sanding.
