To keep your hardwood looking good regularly, you must invest in a quality broom and put it to use. Sweeping helps to remove dirt, dust, and other debris that can build up on your hardwood floors. If left unattended, this debris can scratch and harm the look of your hardwood, even leading to premature aging. How often you sweep will depend on the traffic your hardwood receives.

You may also want to place mats at the entrances of your home. Shoe removal is always an excellent way to prolong the lifespan of your hardwood floors or any other type of flooring.

Dealing With Hardwood Spills & Stains

Hardwood floors are notoriously tough on spills and stains. It is very unlikely that any lingering damage will take place when a spill occurs on your hardwood, so long as you act fast.

For liquid messes, wipe them up using a cloth or towel. The longer you wait to address a liquid mess, the more likely it is to cause issues later on. Adding water directly to the hardwood to clean can cause expansion issues. For a solid mess, sweep it up with a broom promptly. There's not much more to it than that!

Damp mop with a solution of ammonia and water or branded floor cleaner that does not contain a wax or polish. Swiffers work well for dust.

When you doubt how to handle a specific hardwood mess, consult your manufacturer.
