The best way to protect the natural beauty of your new hardwood from Messina's Flooring is to employ the use of a few simple maintenance tips from our experts. Read on to learn more!
Daily care & maintenance
To keep your hardwood looking its best, first consider preventative maintenance. Use floor protectors with all furniture. Invest in mats and place them throughout your home, particular at your entryways. Encourage visitors to remove their shoes before walking across your flooring. You'll also want to use a humidifier or dehumidifier as needed, as hardwood is sensitive to climate. Never drag heavy objects such as furniture across your flooring!
For daily care, sweep and vacuum regularly. You can use a dry mop, but you won't want to use a wet mop, as moisture can cause your hardwood to warp and could void your warranty.
Dealing with spills
Blot up liquid spills as soon as they happen to prevent damage. Use a manufacturer-approved wood surface cleaner only. Never use abrasive steel wool or harsh chemicals. For tough residues or stains, be gentle and consult your manufacturer's guidelines. Never use any type of buffing machine on your hardwood when cleaning.
