How To Clean Your Hardwood Floorfrom: Maxx Home Guides
It's easy to build a house using concrete and steel, but it's much more of a challenge to do so using wood. You might wonder why, since wood is one of the most common building materials used for any kind of building.
However, unlike concrete, wood is an exhaustible resource, which mean, if nobody plants trees, then we won't have any hardwood. Unfortunately, too many of our forests are starting to get depleted, so it's likely the availability and cost of hardwood will continue to rise. Therefore, your hardwood floors deserve the very best treatment if you expect longevity and stability from them.
So how do we clean our hardwood floors to ensure they last long enough for the next generations to enjoy and benefit? Here are some tips you might want to consider.
First, when cleaning your hardwood floor, make sure you use a broom that explodes at the ends. A broom with too fine bristles won't trap the dirt and will only have it accumulate within the tiny cracks and creases.
In time this will damage your flooring and eventually cause more wear than necessary. It's likely you won't notice any changes until the damage becomes apparent, which is something you should definitely try to avoid.
Second, don't use oil based soaps to clean your flooring. Rather, look for cleaning liquids made especially for hardwood floors that won't cause damage to their finish. Remember, it's the finish that shields your hardwood floor from wear and spills, so always check if the coat is still thick enough to serve its purpose.
Third, don't leave standing water or wet rags on your hardwood floor. If this should happen, choose to either sand the affected area or replace the damage plank. If the water has is there short while and your finish is new, then don't worry. Just wipe the wet area with a soft dry rag and you're good to go.
Cleaning your hardwood floor requires diligence on your part, because, well, hardwood floors deserve to be maintained properly. They bring stability and sturdiness to your living space so the least you can do is to make sure your floor is cared for properly.
