Preserving your hardwood is like safeguarding a reasonably-sized investment. After all, as you know, the floor that you walk on day to day is hardly your least expensive asset. Not only is it a costly part of your home, but it contributes to both the elegance and ambience of your overall decor.
Before you consider a hardwood deep clean, you must first understand the basics of maintaining your floor. Hardwood can last for decades, often lasting across multiple generations. But its abiding nature is only possible if the wood is maintained properly.
Daily Hardwood Maintenance
Keep in mind; you should never leave dirt on hardwood because foot traffic can drive grit and grime into the surface and crevices — ultimately causing damage to the floor.
For your daily maintenance, start with the following:
- Dust Mop
One key note is not to use too much water when cleaning the hardwood because excessive moisture will lead to severe warping of the wood. Instead, use damp microfiber mops, which keep moisture to a minimum while absorbing minor contaminants.
If you do happen to spill liquid on your hardwood, wipe it up quickly to avoid any damage.
Deep Clean and Dustless Re-Coating
Maybe your hardwood has moved beyond the day-to-day maintenance threshold, and needs a thorough cleaning. If this is the case, easy maintenance might not be enough; your floor may require a deep cleaning and re-coat.
