Maintenance Checklist

As a homeowner, the last thing you want is damage done to your hardwood floors.

This can be especially difficult when children and pets are around. Even though hardwood floors are durable and can last a lifetime, they are still prone to wear and tear from improper maintenance. No matter how well you protect your hardwood floors against damage, there will always be some type of wear and tear that accumulates through the years.

For best results, follow our Preventative Maintenance checklist:


Preventative Maintenance

  • Keep your wood floor dry. Using a wet-mop on a wood floor can dull the finish and damage the wood. Place area rugs in front of sinks, and wipe up spills immediately.
  • Keep it clean. This one seems like a no-brainer. Place rugs where necessary to prevent tracking dirt and debris onto your hardwood floor. When the floor does get messy, clean it in a timely fashion.
  • Try not to scratch or scuff your floor. Place felt or fabric glides on the feet of heavy furniture. Avoid walking on a hardwood floor in sports cleats or high heels, if possible.
  • Be cautious with wood floor care products. Make sure the care products you choose are hardwood friendly, especially if using wax. Try to avoid the use of water or harsh chemical abrasives, instead only use solutions that are safe for hardwood, such as Bona hardwood cleaning products.

“My husband and I are so pleased with the beautiful job Signature Hardwood Floors preformed. They refinished our hardwood kitchen floors and they look fabulous! They were able to match the stain, as to blend in with the rest of the house. The owner and staff are friendly, courteous, and professional. I highly recommend the company for floor refinishing and plan to use them in the future.”
