Hardwood floors are no small investment
and by following these few simple suggestions
you can enjoy the beauty your wood flooring
for many years.
Do the Following:
Vacuum or sweep with horse hair broom
Use area rugs on high traffic pathways,
pivot areas, near doorways, and end of stairs,
etc... and place mats at exterior doors
to trap sand & grit from incoming traffic.
Clean spills immediately with soft cloth.
Use a vacuum or broom for dry spills.
Install felt pad floor protectors on bottom
Kitchen floors experience the most traffic
in a home. To prevent premature wear of
the floor, place an area rug in front of
the sink & stove area. Shake out or
vacuum the rugs frequently.
A cloth wetted with water & squeezed
dry may be used to wipe up food stuffs &
other spills, provided the area is buffed
dry immediately. Heel or scuff marks &
stubborn stains may be removed by lightly
rubbing with a cloth & a wood floor
Don't Do the Following:
Do not let sand, dirt, or grit build up
on your floor. They work like sandpaper
and can dull the finish.
Do not use oil soap, or other household
cleaners on your polyurethane finished wood
floor. These products dull floor finishes
and make re-finishing difficult.
Do not walk on wood floors with high heels.
This can damage your finish.
Keep pet claws properly clipped & filed
to avoid scratching finish.
