Just like any other floor covering, real wood floors will show signs of normal wear over time, depending on the size of your family and your lifestyle. However, by observing a few precautions and with a regular cleaning/maintenance routine, you can expect to enjoy your wood floor for many, many years.

Here are a few helpful tips:

  • Sweep or vacuum with a soft brush regularly - a build-up of grit can damage the surface of the wood.
  • Remove spills quickly using a soft cloth and recommended cleaning product.
  • Avoid heavy wet mopping or flooding of your floor with water or other products. A slightly damp cloth is all that is needed, using a diluted wood floor cleaner.
  • Place small carpets or rugs in high traffic areas, especially if you have a large family or pets.
