Hardwood floors are a beautiful and durable choice for any home. They add warmth, elegance and value to your space. But how do you keep them looking new for years to come? Here are some hardwood maintenance tips from Bell Hardwood Floors, your trusted flooring store serving East Idaho & Wyoming since 1982.
Sweep or vacuum regularly.
Dust and dirt can scratch and dull the surface of your hardwood floors, so it's important to remove them frequently. Use a soft-bristled broom or a vacuum with a hardwood floor attachment to avoid damaging the finish.
Clean spills immediately.
Liquid can seep into the wood and cause warping, staining or mold growth. Use a damp cloth or a hardwood floor cleaner to wipe up any spills as soon as they happen. Avoid using water, vinegar, ammonia or other harsh chemicals that can damage the wood or the finish.
Protect from scratches and dents.
Furniture, shoes, pets and other objects can leave marks on your hardwood floors. Use felt pads under furniture legs, area rugs in high-traffic zones, and mats at entryways to prevent dirt and debris from being tracked in. Trim your pet's nails regularly and avoid wearing high heels or cleats on your hardwood floors.
Refinish when needed.
Over time, your hardwood floors may lose their shine or show signs of wear and tear. Depending on the type and thickness of your wood, you may be able to sand and refinish them to restore their original beauty. Bell Hardwood Floors offers professional refinishing services that can make your floors look like new again.
