Hardwood Floor Cleaning
Whether you have had a hardwood floor for years or just had a new one installed, it’s important to preserve your investment and learn how to clean hardwood floors. Believe it or not, there’s a bit more to it than using any old broom and a mop. In fact, the way you’re used to cleaning your floors may be doing more harm than good.
It’s true, regular cleaning is a must to maintain the rugged beauty of hardwood floors. Because different floor finishes have unique care requirements, the best way to clean hardwood floors will depend on the type of finish, rather than the wood species (e.g., cherry, maple, oak). Employ the wrong method and you could do damage! Read on to learn how to identify your floor’s finish, then, choose the best technique and supplies ideal for dusting, deep cleaning, and removing stains.
Perform the appropriate deep cleaning routine on a biannual basis, whether you see grimy build-up or not. It can be hard to notice on a floor you walk on every day, but once it’s clean you’re likely to be impressed by the difference!
