Properly caring for your Hardwood floors can extend the life of your floors almost indefinitely. It is quite simple to care for your Hardwood floors; all it takes is just a few simple steps.
Begin by dust mopping or vacuuming your floors on a daily basis to remove any dry soil. Dry soil can scratch the polyurethane coating on your hardwood floors, causing them to become dull and prematurely wearing out the polyurethane.
The next step is to mop using a flat microfiber mop and a hardwood floor cleaning solution. It is extremely important to use a cleaning solution that leaves no residue. Most soapy cleaners leave a residue that attracts dirt and dulls the floor’s finish. We recommend using Basic Coating’s squeaky clean. Simply mist the floor with the cleaning solution and wipe up with the microfiber mop. A light misting is all you need; over-wetting hardwood floors can cause cupping and other damage so be sure to dry up spills immediately.
Finally, have your Hardwood floors professionally deep cleaned every 12-18 months. Following these simple steps will give you beautiful floors that will last a lifetime.
