Hardwood Spills

No matter how careful you are, unforeseen spills are bound to happen. But by acting quickly, you can prevent staining. Blot up any liquid using a clean cloth and sweep away any solid debris. If there's any residue, use a clean, damp cloth to gently remove it, making sure not to let water stand. Before using any cleaning solution or stain remover, you should consult your manufacturer's guide to ensure it will not damage your floors or void your warranty. Remember to avoid letting moisture or cleaning solutions stand on your floors, as they can harm your hardwood.

Daily Hardwood Care

Establishing a daily care routine is essential for maintaining the beauty and longevity of your hardwood floors. You should sweep and dry mop regularly to remove dirt and debris. While most hardwood can withstand damp mopping, do not allow water to stand or pool, as it can lead to floor damage. By incorporating these simple habits into your routine, you can preserve the pristine condition of your hardwood flooring for many years to come.

Dirt & Debris

Over time, dirt and debris can damage your hardwood, leading to scratches. While some of those scratches may be easily fixed, others may require professional refinishing to restore the hardwood's natural beauty. It's important to take proactive measures to minimize the impact of dirt and debris on your hardwood floors, such as placing mats at entryways and using rugs in high-traffic areas.
