How Do I Maintain My Hardwood Floors?
Hardwood floors are actually quite easy to maintain and will keep their beautiful finish for years when properly cared for. For some easy maintenance tips, check out the following list of dos and don’ts:
- Sweep or vacuum regularly to remove any dirt and debris that could scratch the floor.
- Wipe up spills immediately.
- Put a welcome mat on the inside and outside of every exterior door to prevent dirt from being tracked into the house.
- Place felt floor protectors on the feet of all your furniture.
- Take care to protect the floor when moving furniture.
- Maintain between 30-50% humidity in your home at all times.
- Use cleaning products specially designed for safe use on hardwood floors.
- Don’t use carpets/mats with rubber backing because they trap dirt, debris and moisture, which can damage the floor.
- Don’t drag heavy pieces of furniture across the bare floor.
- Try to avoid exposing your floor to too much sunlight, this can cause fading in light-coloured finishes.
- Never use harsh cleaners on your floor.
- For example, vinegar is a great household cleaner, but it should never be used on hardwood flooring, as it can damage the surface.
- Don’t use a wet mop to clean up, the excess water can damage the floor.
How Many Different Types of Hardwood Flooring Are There?
One of the many advantages of hardwood flooring is the incredible variety that it offers. At Nu-Way Floor Fashions, there are literally hundreds of different looks and finishes to choose from. You’ll be able to find exactly the colour, tone and richness of wood finish that you’ve been looking for.
You can also choose between solid wood flooring products or engineered wood flooring.
- Solid wood flooring—Cut from single pieces of wood, solid wood boards can be sanded and refinished many times over and can last for years when well maintained.
- Engineered wood flooring—Made from several layers of wood and adhesive firmly pressed together, these boards are stronger and more moisture resistant than solid wood, but can’t be sanded and refinished as many times.
Can I Install Hardwood Flooring Myself?
It’s not recommended. There’s a chance that by doing it yourself you’ll void your manufacturer’s warranty or make a miscalculation that’ll cost you big time later on.
At Nu-Way Floor Fashions, professional flooring installation is quick, efficient and comes with the satisfaction of knowing that your floor is fully protected by a warranty. Contact us today to book an appointment with one of our friendly wood flooring experts.
