A hardwood floor should bring warm and earthly beauty to your home. If taken good care of, they last longer. The following tips will help you take good care of your wooden floors.
The first step is to use a vacuum cleaner or a dust mop to remove dust, pet hair, dirt and other debris from the floor. If left without cleaning, the debris could scratch the floor. Using a vacuum with a beater bar attachment is not advised because it could damage the floor. Instead, use the floor-brush attachment. You need to do this at least once a week.
Some grime and dirt build up over time and they cannot be removed by dust mopping. You need periodic deep cleaning where you use a liquid cleaner to maintain your floor. If you notice any damage to your floor while cleaning, call a hardwood flooring company to fix it before the damage gets worse. During deep cleaning, you may buy some commercial wood cleaning products to clean the floor. It is very important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using such products. You can also mix white vinegar in warm water to make your own cleaner.
Saturate a sponge mop or a rag in the cleaning solution. The mop should be damp and not wet. Be careful not to put too much liquid on the floor during cleaning and to then rinse the mop with water and wring out excess water then wipe excess water from the floor.
Never allow standing water on your hardwood floor because it will damage the floor. Make sure you prevent damage and dirt to your cleaned floor by putting doormats outside and inside to reduce on the moisture and dirt tracked in by people. Read More: https://www.woodenfloors.co.nz/
