Floor Cleaning & Maintenance
Unlike most other floor covering options, wood is very forgiving. Most problems can be prevented with proper cleaning & maintenance, but when problems do occur, renewal and repair usually is possible. For renewing and repairing stains and scratches on any wood floor, Please call us direct and we can assist you with your repairs.
Self Care and Maintenance
Here are some steps you can take to minimize professional cleaning & maintenance and maintain the beauty of your wood floors as well.
• Do not use vinyl or tile floor care products on wood floors. Self-polishing acrylic waxes cause wood to become slippery and appear dull quickly.
• Use throw rugs both inside and outside doorways to help prevent grit, dirt and other debris from being tracked onto your wood floors. This will prevent scratching.
• Do not wet-mop a wood floor. Standing water can dull the finish, damage the wood and leave a discoloring residue.
• Wipe up spills immediately with a slightly dampened towel.
• Put fabric-faced glides under the legs of furniture to prevent scuffing and scratching.
• Avoid walking on your wood floors with cleats, sports shoes and high heels. A 125-pound woman walking in high heels has an impact of 2,000 pounds per square inch. This kind of impact can dent any floor surface.
• When moving heavy furniture, do not slide it on wood flooring. It is best to pick up the furniture completely to protect the wood flooring.
• For wood flooring in the kitchen, place an area rug in front of the kitchen sink.
