Every hardwood floor gives a unique appearance and to maintain this appearance they need to be treated and cleaned regularly. In high traffic areas, dirt and grit can transform a hardwood floor into something that looks worn and less than appealing. It is also possible over time floors can develop a build-up of wax that can and will fade when exposed to direct sunlight. For more information on our Floor Care Services.
To prolong the life of hardwood floors there are many tips that you can follow before you need the professional services and the need to have your floor stripped and waxed.
A simple mat at each entry way can trap tiny particles which can act like sandpaper on your floor surface, it is also worth placing a mat in any area where there is the possibility of water being splashed, this will deter any water marks forming.
Do’s and Don’ts
Never use wax on a floor with a urethane finish
Only use cleaners that will not leave a film or residue
Never use ammonia or oil based soaps on hardwood floors, they will make the finish look dull
Never use an excessive amount of water on hardwood floors, standing water can cause the wood to expand.
Treat sticky spots or marks with a damp cloth
