Investing in new hardwood flooring is a significant enhancement to any home. At Norman Floorcovering, we understand the value it brings, not just in aesthetics but also in functionality.
Here are three ways to ensure you get the most out of your new hardwood floors:
1. Proper Maintenance: The key to long-lasting hardwood floors is regular and appropriate maintenance. Use a soft-bristle broom or a microfiber mop for daily cleaning to keep the surface free from dust and grit that can scratch the wood. For deeper cleaning, use a cleaner specifically designed for hardwood floors. Avoid using excessive water or harsh chemicals, as they can damage the wood over time.
2. Smart Protection Strategies: Protect your hardwood floors from day-to-day wear and tear. Use felt pads under furniture legs to prevent scratches. Place rugs in high-traffic areas to minimize wear. Also, consider using window treatments to protect the wood from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, which can cause fading and discoloration over time.
3. Embrace the Aging Process: One of the unique aspects of hardwood flooring is its ability to age gracefully. Over time, the wood develops a rich patina that adds character and warmth to your home. Instead of constantly striving for a brand-new look, embrace the natural aging process. Regular polishing can enhance the wood's natural beauty, making your floors look elegant and timeless.
