Everyone loves the aesthetic appeal of hardwood flooring! It gives the home a quaint comfort that is warm and inviting. But … homeowners who have installed for the first time may be surprised to know that with much hardwood comes much responsibility!The best thing about this is that when it’s maintained well it keeps looking as good as new. To help you maintain the original luster and shine, here are a few quick and easy tips that won’t take up too much of your time.

Give hardwood flooring a quick sweep every other day. Why? It’s hard to imagine but even small specks of dust can rub against hardwood acting like sandpaper. Over time, it can ruin the finishing of hardwood and wear wood down causing it to lose its luster and shine. You may want to invest in a vacuum cleaner that has a mode for hardwood flooring. This helps clean deep into crevices and in between planks.

Use non-skid cotton mats at the front door or at the entrance of any room. Why non=skid cotton? Rubber or fiber-backed mats can scratch or stain wood.
