Taking Care of Your Hardwood Floors

The maintenance is the key to long lasting beauty of your wood floors. However, cleaning the wood floor is no more effort than vacuuming carpet or mopping vinyl.


  • Be gentle when moving back furniture.
  • Install proper felt protectors under ALL furniture.
  • Do not use any area rugs.
  • Avoid using water or any cleaner during this period.
  • Avoid heavy traffic.


According to a Flooring Institute, "a good rule of thumb is to vacuum or dust weekly." After vacuuming or dusting, use recommended flooring cleaner for spills and general cleanup on floors which have a non-waxed polyurethane finish. (BONA)


Place mats and throw rugs at doorways, exteriors and interiors to help prevent the tracking of grit, dirt and sand. NEVER WET-MOP A WOOD FLOOR. Water and wood do not mix well together. Use recommended flooring cleaner. Wipe up food and other spills immediately with a dry or slightly dampened towel (wipe dry). Keep high heels in good repairs. An unprotected tip will dent any hardwood floor. Keep felt or fabric-faced glides under the legs of furniture to prevent scuffing and scratching. Kitchen floors experience the most traffic in a home. Place an area rug in front of the kitchen sink and stove. Shake out or vacuum the rugs often. When moving heavy furniture, protect wood flooring by slipping a piece of cloth or blanket under the legs. Do not use wax, oil soap, pledge or any household cleaners. Finally, urethane finishes eventually will show wear patterns from surface scratching. When high traffic area begin to look dull it is time to recoat or restore the finish. Call our company for free evaluations. The recommended product to use on your floor is called Bona hardwood cleaner. Found at Lowes and grocery stores.

The recommendations made here are not intended to endorse specific products or brands but to serve as general guidelines in the selection and use of floor maintenance materials.
