Properly Cleaning & Maintaining Hardwood Floors

By Lainie Eilenberger, Real Estate Agent for Key and Slate Real Estate Group

Hardwood floors are a beautiful and durable addition to any home, and proper cleaning and maintenance is essential to keep them looking their best for years to come. As an expert real estate agent with Key and Slate Real Estate Group, I'm here to share some tips on how to properly clean, dust, and polish your hardwood floors.

The type of wood and the color of your hardwood floor will play a significant role in determining the best products to use. For light colored wood, it's recommended to use a cleaner specifically designed for hardwood floors. Avoid using water or vinegar as they can damage the finish and strip the wood of its natural oils. For dark colored wood, it's best to use a cleaner that will help enhance the color and shine of the wood.

Dust your hardwood floors regularly using a soft-bristled broom or dust mop. This will remove dirt, dust, and pet hair that can scratch and dull the surface of your floor. If you need to clean up spills or stains, it's important to act quickly and use a damp cloth to avoid damaging the finish. To keep your hardwood floors looking their best, it's essential to reapply a new coat of varnish every 3-5 years. This will help protect the wood from scratches and daily wear and tear, and give your floor a fresh new look.
