Hardwood Flooring Care & Maintenance

Follow our care & maintenance guide to keep your hardwood flooring looking great. 

How to care for your hardwood floor

Hardwood flooring is easy to maintain. Follow the steps below to ensure that your hardwood also looks great 

You should only use manufacturer-approved cleaning products on your hardwood. 

Do not use water and vinegar, soap-based cleaners, wax, or steam cleaners on your hardwood floors. These solutions can dull the shine of your floors. 

Place area rugs and entry mats at the doors of your home. These rugs will help to prevent dirt and other debris from tracking on your hardwood. 

Do not wet-mop your hardwood floors. 

Address spills as they occur with a cloth or towel. 

Opt for furniture protectors under the legs of furniture to prevent scuffing and scratching on your hardwood floors. 

Avoid walking on your wood floors, cleats, or high heels. Said footwear can create dents in your hardwood that are hard to repair. 

Never slide furniture across your hardwood floors. 

Use a humidifier to prevent your hardwood floors from expanding. 

Window treatments are recommended to block UV rays that can harm your hardwood floors over time. 

Trim your pet's nails to prevent damage to your hardwood floors. 

If you treat your hardwood right, it will return the favor!
