hardwood Care & Maintenance

Protect your hardwood flooring with these care and maintenance tips from the experts at Floortrends

preventative maintenance

Your hardwood floors are an investment that impacts the resale value of your home, so make sure you get the most out of them. Regular care and preventative maintenance will keep your hardwoods shiny and beautiful for years.

Start by placing doormats at entryways to prevent guests from tracking dirt onto your floors. We also suggest using furniture protectors to keep heavy objects from leaving dents in your floors.

Regularly sweeping, vacuuming, and dry mopping will clear away dust and dirt before it damages your hardwoods.

cleaning spills & stains

While hardwood floors are typically durable, they aren't water-resistant. This means you should clean up spills as soon as they happen to prevent warping and water damage.

Lighter spills like water, milk, and pet accidents can be wiped away with a towel. For tougher stains like wax and lipstick, consult your manufacturer's guide.
