Daily Hardwood Care
Hardwood is a notoriously low-maintenance flooring option. As a homeowner, all you need to keep your hardwood looking great is a broom and a willingness to put it to use. By sweeping your hardwood floors every day, or every couple of days, you are actively helping to prolong the lifespan of your flooring.
You may also elect to put doormats at the entrances of your home and encourage your guests to remove their shoes before entering.
Hardwood Stain Guide
Act Quickly! Delaying may cause the spill to become a permanent stain. Blot liquids with a dry, white absorbent cloth or white paper towels. Gently scrape up semi-solids with a rounded spoon. Break up solids and vacuum or sweep.
Pretest any spot removal solution (for color transfer to the cloth or damage to the carpet) in an inconspicuous area. If a change occurs, select another solution. For hardwood, this really shouldn't be needed.
A dry, absorbent, cleaning compound may be used as a substitute to minimize drying time.
