Are You Ruining Your Floors? 4 Hardwood Floor Care Tips

Wood flooring is common; unfortunately proper hardwood floor care isn’t. Are you inadvertently ruining your floors? The good news is we have 4 tips to keep your flooring beautiful for years to come.

1. Consider hardwood floor care when selecting décor. Maintaining your flooring is more than just cleaning hardwood floors regularly; it’s also preemptively protecting them from damage.

  • Place furniture pads (but not hard casters) under chair and table legs, or choose chairs with wheels. When you move your furniture around, actually pick it up so it doesn’t drag across the floor and scratch it.
  • Also be careful about “sticky” texture mats or double stick tape when keeping rugs in place. Instead, look for rug pads and mats made from natural materials – without a “sticky” surface.
