Squeaky clean. Try to vacuum or sweep your hardwood floors once a week. Dust and dirt does collect and it's best to get rid of it before it spreads anywhere else.
No-no products. Stay away from harsh cleaning products: ammonia-based cleaners, acrylic finishes, wax-based products, detergents, bleach, polishes and oil soaps, abrasive cleaning soaps, or acidic materials.
Spills. Spill something? Wipe it up immediately! You don't want sticky or stained floors.
Welcome home. Use entry rugs at your doors to collect dirt and moisture. A rug will stop the nasty stuff from spreading all over the house.
Pet manicure. Keep your pet's nails trimmed short. Pets can track in substances that can cause scratches.
Routine maintenance and using the correct products makes cleaning hardwood floors a breeze and will keep your floors looking beautiful for years to come.
