Maintaining Hardwood Floors
Hardwood floors are an investment for your home, and as such, should be treated as an investment. Regular maintenance and upkeep is vital in ensuring that your investment is being taken care of. At Unique Flooring San Diego, we believe that hardwood maintenance isn’t difficult but vital. With our hardwood floors, you get floors that last against the test of time, but only if they are provided with the care and maintenance they need.
Precaution is the best choice to ensuring long term use and enjoyment of hardwood floors. Wood floors are not ideal for high traffic, high moisture areas. By placing a throw rug or mat in such areas, you can greatly reduce stress and stain to your wood floors. The best type of floor mats to place on your hardwood floors are ventilated mats; these will ensure a solid protective surface while reducing the risk of damage to your floors.
Another way to maintain your hardwood floors is by regularly sweeping or vacuuming them. Dirt, dust and debris have a tendency to pile up on wood floors causing strain and damage to the surface of the floor. By regularly sweeping, one can remove these hindering particles and thus reduce the risk of damage to the floor which in turn leads to increased lifespan of the wood.
Cleaning Hardwood Floors – Unique Flooring San Diego Solutions
When cleaning hardwood floors, it is important to consider the risks and benefits of cleaning solutions. While many cleaning solvents advertise a deep clean that will have your floors sparkling, they are many times harmful to your wood floors. When it comes to hardwood, a damp mop can be just as effective as many cleaning solutions. However, it’s important not to drench your wood floors with water because excess moisture can damage your floors.
