Solid Wood Floor Cleaning – Care and Maintenance

Solid wood flooring is a traditional and beautiful option for many rooms in the home as long as they are above grade.   Some of these floors have been known to last a hundred years or more with proper solid wood flooring maintenance and care.   In order to protect the investment it is vital to know how to clean and maintain this type of flooring, and all the ways to avoid damage that will age the floor prematurely.     Cleaning Solid Wood Flooring   Solid wood flooring can be scratched, so in order to minimize the risk it is a good idea to place mats at entranceways to capture as much dirt, dust and sand as possible. Sweeping the floor daily will remove what the mats miss. It’s also a good idea to vacuum  regularly (without a beater bar) to remove any dirt or dust left behind.   To wash the floor, use only products recommended by the flooring manufacturer. Only damp mop, as wood is highly vulnerable to water and excess moisture will damage the wood and potentially cause warping.   Maintaining Solid Wood Flooring   In addition to regular cleaning, it may be necessary to use a spot cleaner if a stain appears from food or drinks. Follow the instructions for the product suitable to your floor.   Sticky marks on solid wood flooring can be cleaned with a damp towel.   When the flooring begins to look dull and loses its shine it is time to refinish the floor. This will not only restore its original beauty but it will help extend the life of the flooring by protecting the wood and helping to reseal it against moisture.   DIY homeowners can refinish their own flooring, which requires sanding and applying fresh coats of finish, and allowing the floor ample time to dry and cure.   Many people choose to hire professional wood floor refinishers to complete the job, which can help speed up the process and reduce the amount of time that the floor cannot be used. It’s also a great option for someone going away on holidays – the floor can be completed  while they are away and they return to a beautiful new-looking floor.   … Continue reading
