It’s well known throughout the flooring community and beyond that wood floors epitomize longevity. They’re classics for more than just their luxurious looks! With proper floor care you can expect your prefinished hardwood flooring to last for decades or more and look great well into its golden years. If you’re looking for an investment that can last a lifetime, hardwood is the way to go.

However, just like any flooring type, hardwood flooring requires care to keep looking and functioning at its best; it’s not unique in that respect. But don’t be afraid of its maintenance requirements; it’s by far the most inherently long-lasting of all the flooring types, and you’ll thus need to put more care into something that you’ll own for a longer period of time. It’s only logical!

Plus, once you get the hang of it, taking care of your prefinished hardwood floor is as easy as pie. UB Hardwoods, a Plymouth vendor of all sorts of flooring types, is here to prove it.

Prefinished Hardwood Flooring Care: The Basics

The number one thing you can do to prolong the longevity of this already tough flooring: vacuum or sweep regularly. Small bits of grit and debris can get ground into the flooring’s finish, and while in quality products like ours this won’t do any visible damage, over time it can wear down even the toughest protective layers. Considering tidying up is probably already a part of your household routine, this shouldn’t add much to your to-do list.

Additional care requirements for your hardwood flooring include...

Periodic Refinishing

Even the hardiest finishes will wear down eventually; flooring is designed to be walked on, after all. To avoid leaving your hardwood dull-looking and unprotected, simply invest in professional floor refinishing services. It’s simple and stress-free!

Using the Correct Cleaning Product

Certain products, like bleach, can provide quite damaging to any hardwood flooring. However, once you find a cleaning product that works or that’s recommended by your flooring professionals, maintaining your hardwood flooring becomes as simple as using it.

Cleaning Up Spills Quickly

This is something that you do anyway, right? You’d never let a puddle sit in the middle of your home, regardless of what your flooring is made of! All kinds of hardwood flooring don’t appreciate excessive water exposure, so just be sure to keep up with your current spill-cleaning habits.
