How To Care For Your New Hardwood Floor

We care about your floor's longevity just as much as you!




Please read over the following recommendations:

  • • Felt placed on the bottom surfaces of furniture will prevent scuffs, scratches, or dents. Also, try to lift items to avoid dragging across the floor's surface. Wait 72 hours before moving furniture back onto your floor.

  • • Vacuum or sweep frequently. Dirt, grit and sand can be your floor's worst enemy. We suggest a canister vacuum with a brush attachment. Don't use vacuums with beater bars. A good dust mop can also work effectively.

  • Never ever use oil soaps! These products can cause serious problems when it comes time to put a maintenance coat on your floor. You can create a great cleaning solution on your own with just one capful of white vinegar to a gallon of water. Neutral ph cleaners made specifically for wood floors will also work.

  • • Standing water can and will warp your floor. Be sure to wipe up spills as they happen. Overwatering of house plants tends to be a common mistake.

  • • Direct sun can discolor your floor. Avoid this by closing curtains or adding sheer drapes to protect from the sun's intense UV rays.

  • • Pets can cause surface scratches. This can be kept to a minimum by keeping their nails trim.
