Keeping Your Hardwood Floors in Peak Condition

Keeping Your Hardwood Floors in Peak Condition

Maybe you just made a smart investment in refinishing your hardwood floors. What can you do to maintain them for years to come?

First, and most importantly, after your floors have been expertly refinished, it’s vital that you allow all the stains and finishes used to completely cured. It can take up-to 30-days for the stains and sealants to “cure”. For the first 30-days, use a dry mop, no chemicals or cleaners of any kind, to maintain the floors.

After that first 30-days, you should use white vinegar, or Windex, without any ammonia, to clean the floors with a 1:3 ratio of vinegar/Windex, to water. Preferably use something along the lines of a Swiffer, not necessarily a string mop, for regular cleanings.

Well maintained hardwood floors will be a key factor in keeping up the value to your home.
