Effective Maintenance Tips to Keep your Wooden Floors Looking Great In general, hardwood floors are relatively easy to maintain as there are only a few key aspects which you need to be aware of. These aspects are: water, surface cleaning, sunlight, and traffic and movement. Water Water is far and away the biggest threat to solid wood flooring as it can force the wood to warp, shift and lose its lustre. The best way to avoid excess water exposure is to immediately wipe up any spillages with a dry cloth – never use a wet mop. Surface cleaning Wooden floor surfaces should be kept free of dirt by using a broom or vacuum cleaner. Naturally, the only cleaning products you should use are those which have been specifically designed for wooden floors. Sunlight Persistent exposure to sunlight can damage wood. Therefore, you must keep an eye on the parts of your floor which are likely to be affected by direct sunlight and use curtains or blinds to good effect. Traffic & movement You can extend the life of your wooden floors by placing rugs in high-traffic areas. In addition, you should use felt gliders or some other fabric to protect the wood when moving furniture around the room.
