Care & Maintenance
The best way to make sure your hardwood floors remain beautiful and resilient is regular cleaning. Dirt, dust, and grime can gradually diminish the beauty of your hardwood, potentially impacting its longevity. Regularly sweeping your floors helps prevent the buildup of particles that could scratch the surface. The frequency depends on the level of foot traffic your space experiences. Many hardwood floors can also be damp mopped, but be careful not to let water stand as that can damage your floors. To reduce the dirt tracked into your home, it is a good idea to place mats at entryways and remove your shoes at the door.
Unfortunately, spills are inevitable no matter how cautious you are. When a spill happens, it is important to act quickly. Simply sweep up any solids. If you spill a liquid, use a clean cloth to gently blot the area. Avoid rubbing, as this can cause the spill to spread and penetrate the wood.
If you have a spill that persists, it is important to consult your manufacturer's guide for recommended cleaning methods and products. Doing so will ensure your hardwood remains beautiful and you do not void any warranties.
