Cleaning Hardwood Floor in Denver by Brothers Flooring
Even though wood flooring is quite durable and can last for generations, it still requires periodic cleaning. Using inappropriate cleaners for cleaning hardwood floor can irreparably harm the stain or discolor the wood.
We created this page to help you with cleaning a hardwood floor and keep your hardwood floors in great shape for years to come.
We always recommend that if you are unsure about using any cleaner on your hardwood flooring, you should try it in an inconspicuous area first, to ensure that it will not damage your hardwood flooring.
The biggest enemy of any hardwood floor is dirt, along with its next of kin grit and sand.
Simply vacuum your hardwood flooring regularly and clean with a damp, not wet, cotton mop once or twice a month to avoid dirt, grit and sand from scratching or dulling the finish.
Use the soft head attachment of your vacuum cleaner. Do not use the beater brush on your hardwood flooring. We recommend that you also use doormats or rugs at each door way and in high-traffic areas to catch much of the dirt that gets tracked in.
Regardless of what was used to finish your hardwood flooring like wax, varnish or polyurethane, food and liquid spills should be tended to immediately with a simple damp cloth and then dried with a clean towel.
Don’t allow water or any other liquids to remain on the surface of your hardwood flooring because it may damage the finish or seep in between the floorboards that can cause warping or cupping. Never wet mop or use excessive water to clean your floor as it may cause your hardwood flooring to crack or splinter.
We advise that at least several times a year you should clean your hardwood flooring to remove surface grease and grime build up. Brothers Flooring recommends Neutral-pH cleaning products that are specially created for hardwood flooring as your best choice.
Hardwood flooring can be easily dented and gouged by sharp or heavy objects. We recommend felt pads for the bottoms of chair legs and furniture feet to prevent this from happening.
