If you’ve had a recent remodel with new hardwood floors, you want to keep them lasting and pristine for a while. Fortunately, there are a few tricks to help you do that. Here are a few tips on how to prolong the life of your hardwood flooring and keep it in pristine condition.

How to Prolong the Life of Your Hardwood Flooring

  • Start with quality flooring: If you’re still in the middle of remodeling, you still have time to make an essential decision that could determine the lifespan of your flooring. It’s important to choose a quality brand of hardwood flooring. If you work with us, we can ensure you have only the best brands of hardwood that are sure to be durable and long-lasting.
  • Keep your floors dry and clean: One of the best ways to prolong the life of your hardwood floors is to keep them dry and clean. Liquids from spills can easily seep into the flooring and potentially cause the wood to warp, so it’s important to clean up any spills right away. This can also prevent any staining. Dirt and dust also have a way of getting stuck in the crevices, so it’s important to sweep and vacuum regularly to keep your flooring in pristine condition.
  • Use the right cleaning supplies: A lot of cleaning supplies can be harsh on hardwood flooring. When cleaning your floors, it’s important to use cleaning agents that are specifically made for hardwood floors. Most often, they will also contain ingredients that can help prolong the life of your floors.

Hardwood flooring can be a beautiful touch to the home, but it can also be a sensitive flooring material that sometimes needs special care. If you’d like to learn more about how you can care for your hardwood floors, give us a call.
