One of the main benefits of hardwood flooring is that it can last for decades. If you have decided to invest in hardwood flooring, the way your new floors look and how long they last depend on how well you take care of them.
Here are our top suggestions for taking better care of your hardwood flooring:
- When something spills on your hardwood flooring, clean it up immediately. If you let liquid sit on your hardwood floors for too long, the wood can start to warp.
- Underneath all chairs, sofas, tables, and pieces of furniture, use furniture pads. Hardwood flooring is prone to scratching, so adding furniture pads can prevent scratching every time you move a chair, for example.
- Not only should you sweep your hardwood floors every day, but you should also vacuum them weekly to pick up any crumbs you missed. Since vacuuming wood flooring can take some time, we suggest getting a robot vacuum to do the job for you.
- Every three to five years, plan on recoating your hardwood flooring. You’ll notice it’s time to have your hardwood floors recoated when they start to look a little bit dull.
