Daily Care & Maintenance

Hardwood is beautiful and durable flooring option, but traffic and general wear and tear can take their toll on this fantastic flooring. By establishing a care and maintenance guide for your hardwood, you can help to ensure that it continues to look great for the long haul. 

Hardwood is a great flooring option for your home and by following this guide, you can ensure that it stays that way. 

Regular Hardwood Care

We recommend placing entry mats at the doors of your home to ensure that grime is not present on your guest's feet when they enter your home. Investing in these mats and encouraging visitors to remove their shoes can go a long way in maintaining your carpet.

Investing in a quality broom and sweeping your new floor regularly to pick up grains of dirt, dust, and other debris can help to guarantee that your hardwood continues to look great. A vacuum cleaner without a beater bar may also be helpful. Hardwood daily care is that simple!

Dealing With Spills & Stains

Hardwood floors are tough on spills and stains as it is a durable flooring option.

Wood cleaning products can be used to clean difficult-to-eliminate spills and messes, but consult your manufacturer beforehand. Scuffs and heel marks can also be eliminated using these cleaners. 


You should not use ammonia cleaners on your hardwood flooring as it can dull the overall look. You should also never wet mop your floors as it could warp and cause damage to your hardwood flooring. 


When cleaning hardwood, try to use as little water as possible.
