Hardwood floors are a great choice when it comes to your new home- they’re beautiful, durable, mostly easy to maintain and last a lifetime (literally). Homes that are centuries old have some of the most gorgeous hardwood floors throughout every room and they still look as gorgeous as they did from day one. But, that beauty doesn’t come without some tender love and care over the years- so, how do you keep hardwood flooring looking new?
Detecting Dirt and Dust
Who knows what’s truly lurking against the grain of those beautiful planks? Dirt and dust can hide quite inconspicuously. Just as grime and other dust particles gather around various surfaces, furniture, and fabrics; it settles on your hardwood floors in plain sight.
When you sweep your floors, the dirt and dust are pushed around and could nestle themselves into the cracks and crevices between hardwood planks. So, instead of sweeping...
Dust and Vacuum
FInd a duster or even just a microfiber cloth and run it over your floors to get all of the dust without being too harsh on your floors. Then, couple this with a vacuum and you won’t have to worry about too many particles lodging themselves between the planks of your floors and collecting over time.
Treating Spills and Stains
Rule #1 of cleaning: if it spills, it stays… until somebody comes to clean it up. To keep your hardwood flooring looking clean and pristine, tackle spills and stains right away!
