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. Are you not comfortable vacuuming your home on your own? Buy an IRobot Rooma, or any other robotic vacuum!

Refinish every 3-5 years

Re-coating is a way to restore the sheen of wood flooring. This is the process of applying a new wood floor finish. This will vary based on your family’s lifestyle. Do yourself a favor and call Chislehurst Floor Sanding when you want to refinish your hardwood flooring. .

Is a Hardwood Floor Right for Your Bathroom?

photos-hgtv-chevron-hardwood-floor-white-bathtub-and-glass-door-shower-in-bright-contemporary-bathroom_chevron-wooden-floor_home-decor_home-decor-blog-decorators-rugs-decorating-catalogWhen you consider bathroom flooring, you probably think about tile flooring. However, tile is not the only alternative for your bathroom. Hardwood flooring may be an amazing alternative for your bathroom, so look at this option when remodeling or designing your house. To be sure hardwood flooring is the best alternative for your bathroom, be sure to read the following blog post.

If You Are Thinking about hardwood flooring for your toilet, you are going to want to be certain the flooring you choose has a complete finish. Engineered hardwood floors will accumulate water and plump, expand, warp or stain. Wood is naturally very absorbent, therefore unfinished hardwood floors won’t hold up well in a moist area of your property. But with the proper finishing agent (for instance, a polyurethane-based sealer), this flooring choice can actually stand up well against water-heavy environments. Particular finishes are designed specifically for moist locations, and even outside places, so be certain to pick the perfect finish for your bathroom hardwood flooring.

During your hardwood flooring search, you would like to select the most ideal kind of timber for a bathroom. Softwoods, such as walnut and walnut, aren’t a good choice for bathrooms due to their absorbent nature. A harder wood, like teak, walnut, cedar, walnut, walnut, or hickory, is much more inclined to stand up well in a toilet.

Last, find a hardwood floor that comes with a warranty. If the floor you purchase is backed by a warranty, so the retailer is confident the flooring will last in your property. Take the doubt out of hardwood floors shopping by buying from a retailer that offers a guarantee or a simple return policy.

Solid and Engineered Wood Flooring


Solid and Engineered Wood Flooring
Solid wood flooring is a solid piece of wood from the top to the bottom. The thickness varies from ¾” to 5/16”. Those wood floors can be installed both above and on grade, and they can be sanded and refinished during its service life.
Engineered wood floors from other side are also real wood floors made by using multiple wood or wood composite veneers. The veneers can be from the same or from different wood species. It have a great stability because the grain of each veneer runs in different direction. This mean that the wood will resist expanding and contracting during fluctuations in humidity and temperature which is really making it wide usable. This type of flooring can also be sanded and refinished and it can be installed above, on or below grade.

The Best Ways to Clean Hardwood Floors

-Prep your floor for cleaning by sweeping or dust-mopping to get rid of large particles of dirt and debris.
-Use a pH neutral cleaner that will be gentle on your hardwood floors.
-Use a fine spray mist to clean your floor in sections. Avoid putting too much liquid on your floors.
-Use a microfiber mop to clean. Traditional mops can work, but they can leave excess water on your floors.
