Top 10 Care Instructions For Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood Flooring

Did you know real hardwood flooring can really increase your home’s value? It’s not just because they’re made of top-notch stuff. They also never go out of style and match pretty much any room look. But, if you’re planning to spend a lot on real wood floors, you’ve got to be ready to take care of them. You’ll need some basic rules and changes to keep your awesome floors looking great for a really long time.

There are a few things that can really mess up your real wood floors. Sunlight, spilled liquids, using too much cleaner, and rough furniture can all cause big damage. But don’t worry, here are some easy ways to keep your floors looking good without too much hassle.

  1. Stick soft pads under your chairs, tables, and other furniture. This stops them from scratching the floor when you move them.
  2. Always lift furniture when you’re moving it. Don’t drag it across the floor.
  3. It’s best to avoid toys with wheels, big or small. Their wheels can get rough and scratch the floor.
  4. When you vacuum, use the brush attachment. It’s a good idea to use one brush just for the wood floors and a different one for the rest of the house.
  5. Sand and dirt can scratch, so have mats at doors leading to your wood floors. Wiping your feet helps a lot.
  6. Talk to your floor expert about what cleaners to use. Different wood floors need different cleaning stuff.
  7. Sunlight feels great but can fade your floors over time. Keep your curtains and blinds shut when you can.
  8. Clean up any spills right away. Water and other liquids can leave marks on your wood floors.
  9. Don’t walk on wood floors in high heels, especially pointy ones. They can really damage the floor.
  10. If you have pets, keep their nails short so they don’t scratch the floor.

While this list of tips might seem like a lot of work, it’s really important to follow them. This way, your real wood floors will stay looking great for a long time. Remember to enjoy your home and your floor! A room that’s not used is just wasted money, no matter how nice the floors, walls, or ceiling are.
