I think any homeowner with wood floors can agree wood floor cleaning can be quite a chore!
There are lots of products out there that promise the greatest results, as well as conditioning, for a longer life span. However, other than word of mouth from another who has used it, we often can’t be sure of these products ourselves.
Many people find themselves going back to the same old product. While the outcome may not be exactly what they are looking for, at least no harm has been done. At least, that’s how it seems.
There IS a better way!
Unlike many other types of flooring, hardwood flooring is a category all by itself. It can become worn, stains can soak into the wood if it isn’t finished and sealed properly, and it demands a certain maintenance schedule. Aside from daily sweeping or vacuuming, wood floors need to be cleaned at least every month with a product specifically for hardwood.
A special coating or sealant needs to be applied at least every five years. This helps keep spills from soaking down to the wood and can even keep the wood from warping. Once every ten years or so, you will need to have the hardwood sanded and refinished. A process like this can keep wood floors looking nearly new for decades to come!
Of course, these schedules can be individualized, depending on your family’s lifestyle. Wear and tear to wood floors happens differently depending on how much they are used.
Even though professional cleaning is the best way to go for wood floors, there are some things you can do that will help.
Wood floors are beautiful, and lots of people prefer them over vinyl or carpet. They have a sophisticated look and can complement nearly any decor.
Unfortunately, if left uncleaned or improperly cleaned, you might find the need to refinish much sooner than you should. Worse yet, if wood floors are cleaned in the wrong way for long periods of time, you might even need to replace them.
Either of these situations will leave you with expensive alternatives from which to choose.
On the other hand, proper care, even if it’s a little more expensive up front, can protect and secure your wood floors for generations to come.
