Protect your hardwood floors with regular care and maintenance

DAILY CARE

Hardwood floors a lower maintenance than other flooring styles, but keeping them shiny and new still takes a regular care routine. 

To start, place doormats at entryways to collect dirt and soil before it's trailed inside. You should also vacuum, sweep, or dry mop your floors regularly.

And remember to clean up spills as soon as they happen, otherwise they could form stains.

DEALING WITH SPILLS AND SCRATCHES

MOPPING

When mopping hardwoods, make sure to wring most of the water out of the mop before starting. Too much water can cause wear, dulling, and warping.

SCRATCHES

To reduce or remove scratches from hardwood, buff the scratch with a sponge and a mixture of olive oil and water. If that doesn't finish the job, rub a walnut on the scratch to obscure it.

HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS

High-traffic areas like the living room and hallways are likely to have worse wear and tear than the rest of your home, so clean these places more frequently.
