Floor Care & Maintenance is made easy in these simple steps:

  • Sweep Wood Floors with a  Soft, fine bristle broom
  • Vacuum once or twice a week to remove dirt and sand. Use a soft brush attachment to minimize scratching
  • Since water is one of wood floors worst enemies, get rid of water right away! Remove wet spills ASAP with soft towels or a wet/dry vacuum, and then dry thoroughly.
  • Use a very dry damp mop when mopping polyurethane wood floors, since excess water can seep into seams and ruin a wood floor
  • Use furniture pads to place under table and chair legs and on the feet of dressers and armoires. They can be purchased at a local hardware store or home center.
  • Consider using carpet runners (with non-skid pads) over wood floors in high traffic areas.
  • Install floor mats at each entrance so you don't track in dirt from the bottoms of shoes.
