Once you have installed your wooden floors the question is how to care and maintain them?.Well maintained wood floors stay good looking for a long time so it is important to look after your wooden flooring.


I would like to share some useful tips on how to maintain your wooden floors and avoid unnecessary repairs and fixing.

Some people make the mistake of using detergents,bleach,ammonia based cleaners and acidic materials such as vinegar to clean wooden floors.
To clean wood floors use recommended wood floor cleaners or you can use a damp mop(it is recommended to get the mop as dry as possible),sweep or vacuum if there is a need.The vacuum head must be brush or felt.

Here are some useful tips to maintain your wooden floors:
-wipe any water or spills on wooden floor as soon as possible.
-avoid dropping any heavy objects onto the floor.
-protect your  floor from direct sunlight.
-if you have an underfloor heating it should be around room temperature.
-don't drag furniture around.
-use doormats to collect dirt.
-don't let water stand on your floor for a long time.
-the best way to clean your wooden floors is to use a recommended wood flooring cleaner.

I hope these tips will help all those with wooden floors.
