Solid Hardwood Floor

It is easy to clean and protect them as long as you have the knowledge to do so. Just be sure of what you are doing otherwise, your solid hardwood floor will be damaged instead.

Hope these tips could add to your knowledge on how to take good care of your solid hardwood floor.

1. Always place door mats or rugs in every way.

If you have these in your entryways, dirt and grit won’t be dragged inside the house. They can make scratches on your floor since dust, grit and dirt are like sandpaper on your floor. Check your doormats timely if there are dirt deposits. Kids might sometimes drag them inside unknowingly and the dirt in the mats will cause your floors to get dirty. Shake off the dust of your mats often.

2. Use brooms that are soft.

Buy sweeping materials of good quality that can do no harm to your floor like a soft broom. Always use them to drag the dust dirt and small particles outside. Don’t buff your floor unless they are dirt free.

3. Use proper cleaning materials

You can ask the store where you bought the solid hardwood floor for recommendations on what kind of cleaning materials you are going to use. You must always ask for some advices from friends who have the experience about wood floors. It is better to have some ideas from experts rather than experiment your own.

4. Do not wax your floor

If the finish of your floor is urethane, do not use wax in cleaning them. If you clean them with wax, the adhesion strength of the finish will decrease which may cause them slowly, to be stripped off of its protection against other damages.

5. Do not use water or wet mops

Excessive water usage in cleaning your floor will cause it to crack. You know that water is not good to use in cleaning a solid hardwood floor. Too much moisture is not good for wood because it has the tendency to swell against water which may later cause it to rot early. Avoid using them. If you want to, use cloth that is hardly damp.

6. Hire an experienced professional

If there are some problems that need help from a professional. Do not hesitate to hire one. Do not ask for an amateur or the damage would get severe. There are some who might say that they know all about hardwood floor but the truth is, they might not know anything.

7. Put pads on your furniture legs

If you keep on transferring your furniture and they are always being dragged along your floor, it is better to put pads on your furniture legs. If they are uncovered when dragged, your floor can be easily dented. With the hardness and heaviness of your furniture, your floor will surely be damaged.

To take good care of your floor, you don’t have to be hesitant if the concern is the good of your solid hardwood floor. It will last years and years if you only know how and what to do in taking good care of them.
