Chances are, if your home contains hardwood flooring, you paid a pretty price for it, and you want to ensure that it is properly taken care of. Hardwood flooring is a beautiful option for any home, but it requires a certain degree of maintenance, in order to ensure its longevity. Invision Hardwood & Décor is dedicated to providing high quality hardwood flooring products that stand the test of time.
Maintaining your hardwood flooring requires a certain degree of patience. It is recommended that you take the time to sweep or vacuum your hardwood flooring every couple of days. Removing debris will help you protect your floor and ensure that it doesn’t get scratched. Scratches are easily preventable with basic cleaning habits.
Pets are another threat to your hardwood flooring. Frequently brush your pets and vacuum up their hair. Hair can gather on your floor and settle into the cracks. Maintaining your hardwood flooring will require you to maintain your pets. It may sound silly, but it’s the truth.
Two of the biggest threats to hardwood flooring are spills and water damage. Liquid based damage is self-explanatory. If you spill a liquid on your floor, pick it up as fast as possible. Letting water settle into your floor is one of the quickest ways to cause damage and warping. Mop it up and you will see a massive increase in the lifetime of your floors.
A common myth is to use vinegar on your wood floors. While vinegar is a great cleaning product, its high acidity can actually damage your floor. Look into your specific floor before you decide to use any specific cleaning products.
