Disciplined Cleaning

Establish a cleaning routine that involves vacuuming or sweeping the floor to remove any debris or dirt. Following that, use a damp mop with a mild hardwood cleaner to clean the surface of your timber floor. Lastly and most crucial for most homeowners, wipe liquid spills as soon as possible to avoid absorption that can cause warping or cupping. The use of harsh cleaning compounds such as bleach can also make you appear dull, thus avoid these cleaning products in your routine.

Implement Preventive Measures.

It is not enough to just clean your wood floors, you must think ahead to prevent incidents that can permanently damage its appearance. A good practice would be to install doormats at entryways to prevent damage in a high-traffic area. Also, you must avoid dragging heavy objects along your floor as it can create a trail of scratches which is unpleasant to the eyes. Lastly, incorporate protective felt pads under your furniture to avoid any heavy denting.
