Taking Care of Your Hardwood Floors

Keeping your hardwood floors immaculate is a difficult task. Scratches and spills are inevitable and will drive most homeowners crazy. However, with these maintenance tips you can keep your floors looking and feeling new!


Reduce the build-up of dust and dirt on your floors by dusting daily. Use a microfiber towel or vacuum to keep your floors absent of allergy-causing, stubborn dirt and dust. Regular dusting products may not be the best choice.

Choose the correct cleaning formula

According to Lowe's Home Improvement Center there are some ingredients to consider when looking for a hardwood floor cleaner. pH-neutral, non-toxic, and biodegradable are key words to look for when selecting cleaning products.

Never use water

You might damage your floors and cause rot by using water to clean your floors. You can use a damp cloth to wipe up spills, but pouring water directly onto to floor is a no-no.

Floor Mats

Positioning floor mats both inside and outside of the room will help prevent dirt and any water from the bottom of your shoes from coming in contact with your hardwood floors.


Keep your pet’s nails trimmed to avoid surface scratches, and clean up any hair that has shed.

Deep Cleaning

If you haven’t taken proper care of your flooring in the past you may need to perform a deep cleaning. To do so, use a diluted wood-cleaning product and a sponge or rap mop. Be sure to wipe up any left-over cleaning product.
