Hardwood Flooring Home Maintenance
Hardwood flooring is an investment that’s worth protecting, whether it’s new or old. Hardwood flooring adds beauty and warmth to any room it is installed in, as well as adding value to your home. As long as your hardwood floors are in good condition, it will last.
Let’s say you decide you need your home to be sold. You want it to be a quick sale. What if you have a lot of hardwood flooring in your home that needs refinishing? The cost of hiring a flooring contractor to restore your hardwood flooring to its former glory will make it difficult for any/all buyers to offer you what you want.
There are some preventive measures that you can take to preserve the beauty and health your hardwood flooring.
Furniture pads are a good ideas
Wood flooring is notorious for causing scratches. You can prevent scratching by adding furniture cushions to your tables, chairs and sofas.
Even if your home doesn’t permit shoe-wearing, dust can still find a way to settle on wood floors. It then gets into the wood’s grain, and between the floor boards. There is an hygiene problem to be aware of if your pets shed even a tiny bit. Sweep or dust!
Vacuum One Week
This sounds like work. It’s not difficult work, but it isn’t. Weekly vacuuming is essential for maintaining a clean home. You’ll pick up any crumbs or dirt that you missed while sweeping the floors.
