But don’t worry, hardwood flooring may seem daunting, but it’s actually easy to install and a beautiful choice for almost any home. Discover more with the professionals from STONE

Hardwood Maintenance

Everything in the home needs maintenance sometimes. For some items, this can be as little as sweeping now and then. Because of the beauty and strength that comes from hardwood flooring, many people worry they won’t be able to maintain their new floors. However, it is much easier than you might think.

  • To lessen the amount of dirt, simply place floor mats both inside and outside exterior doors. Additionally, a place to put your shoes by the door is another helpful way to reduce dirt and scuffing.
  • When it comes to cleaning, there are a few things you want to do. The first being to make sure to dust your floors weekly for optimal shine! We suggest using a vacuum or a tool with disposable electrostatic cloths—such as a Swiffer.
  • Wood hates water. But you do need to mop every so often to remove any grime or bacteria. Just make sure to have the mop damp to the touch (not soaking!) and to clean any spills as soon as possible.
  • Using furniture pads also reduces the possibility of scuffing or scratching. Plus, these pads also remove that horrible noise when your furniture moves suddenly.
  • Of course, using the right hardwood floor cleaner monthly keeps the finish bright and shiny as well. 

By following these steps, your flooring should last for many years to come. Don’t keep replacing carpeting every few years. Do yourself a favor and get the hardwood flooring you need for your Baton Rouge home.
