Maintaining Your Floor
PROPER MAINTENANCE WILL MAKE YOUR FLOOR LAST A LIFETIME OR LONGER!
Giving your hardwood floors a good dusting with a microfiber mop or cloth works great for a quick clean. Using a broom is effective as well.
Using a vacuum with a brush head is perfect for your hardwood floor. You can also lightly mist your floor with a hardwood floor cleaner and use a mop to give the hardwood a great clean. A gentle touch is one of the best ways to clean your hardwood floor.
POLISH YOUR FLOOR:
Polishing your hardwood floor every few months is a great way to renew and refresh the finish. Polishing your floors fills in the microscopic scratches and evens out your floor’s protective surface.
Consider giving your floor a deep clean or a sand and refinish every three to five years. Sanding and refinishing your hardwood floor completely removes the old protective finish and replaces it. If your floor has some deep scratches or gouges, sanding and refinishing can repair this damage, leaving you with immaculately clean hardwood flooring that looks almost like it did the day it was crafted.
