How To Care For Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors are a guaranteed way to add value, comfort, and distinction to your home, but they require regular maintenance to keep them in pristine condition. Properly caring for your hardwood floor is essential if you want it to last a long time. Correct routine cleaning is the key to protecting and maintaining your floor’s appearance. Particular cleaning protocols need to be followed to prevent damage to the floor’s surface. Damage can be minimized by regularly cleaning with the proper materials and observing a few maintenance and prevention measures.

To maintain wooden flooring one must bear in mind that wood floors are natural and affected by the changing environment. Do not feel stressed if you see some gap during the dry season, for if the wood doesn’t shrink back into place during the humid season, then we are here to take care of it for you.

Simple, minimal maintenance can be done that includes polishing your floor every two to three months. These polish finishes seal and protect the wood underneath and give your floor a glossy, pristine shine. Normal wear and tear will eventually leave visible scratches and make the surface dull, but that only occurs after many, many years if you have consistently kept giving the proper maintenance to your hardwood floors every time they’re due. 

Polishing periodically with a buffing pad can renew and refresh its appearance by restoring shine, buffing away microscopic scratches and leveling the floor’s surface. Sand and refinish your wood floors every few decades to make them look new again. Wood floors can be re-sanded five to ten times during their expected lifespan with their ability to become typically solid.
