Prevent Problems With Your Hardwood Flooring Memphis TN

Hardwood floors can often look clean and in actuality be quite dirty. Dust and debris that is left laying around gets tracked across the surface, causing scratches and other blemishes. Simply sweep or vacuum regularly to keep dust down. Just know that standard upright vacuums themselves can cause damage to the floor.

Furniture is another big enemy of hardwood with a rather simple solution.

Hardwood is a traditional choice in flooring, yet it also fits many modern home designs. This versatility and beauty are what keep hardwood floors populating homes around the world. Hardwood floors may be durable, but they are not impervious. They actually have more enemies than one might think. The essentials of hardwood floor care and maintenance begin with staving off its worst enemies.

Water: Enemy #1

Water poses a threat to any wood surface, finished or not. Therefore, always wipe up spills immediately. Do not allow standing water; never let wet rugs, towels, or anything else sit on hardwood for a length of time; and don't mop sealed and waxed floors.

In essence, just keep water away from your hardwood floor. Not only will it cause the floor to lose its shine , but can also cause warping and eventual rot.

Dust and Debris

Hardwood floors can often look clean and in actuality be quite dirty. Dust and debris that is left laying around gets tracked across the surface, causing scratches and other blemishes. Simply sweep or vacuum regularly to keep dust down. Just know that standard upright vacuums themselves can cause damage to the floor. You'll need special hardwood floor attachments or a good broom.

Sunshine

Sunlight shining directly on hardwood can cause discoloration in the long term.
