Wooden Floor Care

Modern hardwood floors can be cared for with minimal effort. Wood floors are durable and the wear that naturally occurs with time can add to their charm and beauty. However, you should care for your hardwood floors to protect your investment and keep them looking beautiful. Here are a few tips for wooden floor care.

"All our neighbors want to know who did are beautiful ‘new again’ floors. And we are very happy to highly recommend you. We expect we will see your truck again in our neighborhood soon!"

-- Chad and Stacy, Sammamish

Protect your hardwood floors from damage:

  • Place felt protector pads on the bottoms of all furniture that come into direct contact with your floor.
  • Use barrel type casters instead of ball casters to help prevent dents.
  • Use non-marking rubber casters instead of plastic or metal pads.
  • Always pick up furniture or other objects rather than drag them.
  • Place scatter rugs or mats at entrances to help catch dirt that can scratch floors.
  • Avoid area rugs with rubber or vinyl backing as they may cause discoloration.
  • Move area rugs occasionally to help keep the floor from being discolored.
  • Don't wear cleats or high heels in disrepair that can scratch or leave dents.
  • Clean up water or liquid spills immediately so the water does not have a chance to soak into the wood.
  • Don't expose floors to extreme heat or prolonged strong sunlight as ultraviolet light can cause any organic material including wood to discolor over time.

Clean your hardwood floor with care:

  • Sweep and dust mop regularly.
  • Vacuum only with the beaters turned off.
  • Clean using a cloth or soft mop slightly dampened with manufacturers recommended cleaning products – or you may use a 10 to 1 solution of water and vinegar, or, generic hardwood floor cleaner such as WoodWise or Bona.
  • Don't use a wet mop or steam on your hardwood floor as it can dull the finish or even damage the wood.
  • Don't use wax or petroleum-based cleaners unless specifically called for by the wood floor manufacturer.
  • Don't use ammonia or products designed for wood furniture, such as spray wax or dust cleaners.
