Caring for Hardwood

To keep your floors looking their best, here are a few tips for properly maintaining hardwood floors:

  • After installation and/or finish has dried, place felt pads on the bottom of all furniture pieces (adhering with Liquid Nail or super glue works best), to minimize scratches and dents.
  • Avoid walking on your floors with cleats or high heels.
  • As recommended by the National Wood Flooring Association, it is best to wait 90 days before placing area rugs back on your hardwood floors.
  • Clean your floors with Bona Cleaner.  We recommend using it weekly for optimal results.  Avoid using any wax based products (ex. Old English, Murphy’s Oil) on your floor, as this will create a wax build-up.

By following these simple steps, your hardwood floors will look beautiful for years to come.
