Keep Your Hardwood Flooring in Pristine Condition
The appeal of hardwood flooring is something that will never go away. You want to keep the gleam of freshly finished flooring as long as you can, contributing to the beauty of your home. With some simple maintenance, you can keep the allure of that brand new flooring in your Columbia MD home for a long time to come.
Simple Care Tips
Although the first few tips are something you will hear time and time again, they are arguably the most important and beneficial from repeating. Firstly, keep your hardwood flooring clear of dirt, and vacuum and sweep regularly. The fine particles work like sandpaper, slowly grinding away at the hardwood flooring flooring as your guests walk across the floor, leaving you with a floor that takes on a rather dull hue. Another common, but important tip, is to never leave any standing water on the floor. Cleaning up spills as soon as possible prevents the moisture from penetrating into the flooring, creating stains and ruining the finish.
There are also some steps you can take to prevent your hardwood flooring from getting dirty in the first place. Doormats are practically worth their weight in gold when it comes to protecting your hardwood flooring. The larger the mat the better, as your guests will rub more of the dirt and moisture off of their shoes. One of the easiest things to do when it comes to preserving both hardwood flooring AND carpet is to simply take your shoes off before walking around the house. Luckily, The Vertical Connection Carpet One can help you with our expert knowledge on the subject.
