When you are thinking about having a new wooden floor you may be worried about installing it. We always recommend that you use a professional floor fitter for the job!
Unfortunately, they can be difficult to maintain, especially if you have pets or kids. Spills, accidents, scratches, and scuffs are guaranteed to happen at some point. Before you go running to the hardware store to pick up all new flooring, allow me to put your mind at ease because there are a few time-saving cleaning secrets to help you keep your floors looking like new!
Cleaning and looking after your new hardwood floor is something that you will want to do to keep it looking its best. Cleaning any type of wooden floor is simple. Start by sweeping (on a daily basis). This will remove any dust and dirt.
Memorize this and your floors will stay in impeccable shape for a lifetime: dry first, wet second. Dry-cleaning or dry-tacking first is essential to prevent dirt from scratching the floor as you wet mop. If you don`t clean up that debris first, it`s essentially like dragging sandpaper across the floor.
As soon as your hardwood flooring has been delivered to your property, it is important to let it acclimatise sufficiently. Acclimatising means to allow the flooring to adapt to its new surroundings.
There are many different types of hardwood flooring so make sure you choose the correct one for you. Hardwood flooring comes in a variety of different grain patterns, species of wood, plank sizes and surface finishes. All of these will be important to you as you will want the floor to fit in perfectly with your space.
