Routine maintenance

 
With today’s advances in wood flooring stains and finishes, cleaning your wood floors has never been easier. Regular maintenance requires little more than sweeping with a soft-bristle broom and vacuuming with a soft floor attachment if your wood floor includes a beveled edge that could collect debris. You also should clean your floors periodically with a professional wood floor cleaning product recommended by a wood flooring professional. The NWFA can help you find one in your area.

There are other steps you can take to minimize maintenance and maintain the beauty of your wood floors as well.

Do not use sheet vinyl or tile floor care products on wood floors. Self-polishing acrylic waxes cause wood to become slippery and appear dull quickly.

Use throw rugs both inside and outside doorways to help prevent grit, dirt and other debris from being tracked onto your wood floors. This will prevent scratching.

Do not wet-mop a wood floor. Standing water can dull the finish, damage the wood and leave a discoloring residue.

Wipe up spills immediately with a slightly dampened towel.

Do not over-wax a wood floor. If a wax floor dulls, try buffing instead. Avoid wax buildup under furniture and other light traffic areas by applying wax in these spots every other waxing session.

Put stick-on felt protectors under the legs of furniture to prevent scuffing and scratching. Replace these often as dirt and debris can become embedded on the pad and act like sandpaper on the flooring surface.

Avoid walking on your wood floors with cleats, sports shoes, and high heels. A 125-pound woman walking in high heels has an impact of 2,000 pounds per square inch. An exposed heel nail can exert up to 8,000 pounds per square inch. This kind of impact can dent any floor surface.

When moving heavy furniture, do not slide it on wood flooring. It is best to pick up the furniture completely to prevent scratches.

For wood flooring in the kitchen, place an area rug in front of the kitchen sink.

Use a humidifier throughout the winter months to minimize gaps or cracks.
