Hardwood Floor Cleaning and Maintenance
Hardwood floors have been experiencing a resurgence of popularity in recent years. Once thought to be difficult to care for, hardwood floors are now seen as an easy-to-maintain, elegant alternative to tile, vinyl and even carpet. This is largely a result of improvements in the technology of hardwood floor finishes. These new finishes make it easy to keep your hardwood floor looking like new. Just follow these simple maintenance steps:
Regular Dust Mopping
Regular dry dust mopping is an essential part of hardwood floor care. A good quality dust mop such as the EasyFloorcare "Soft Mop"(dry) is the most effective tool for cleaning dust and dirt off your floor. To keep your floor looking its best, dry dust mop more often on floors with heavy traffic.
Spills and tracked-in dirt can build up and will require more than just dry dust mopping to remove. We recommend our Gaetano EasyCareCleaner (available at www.EasyFloorCare.com). Lightly mist this eco-safe solution directly onto one of our microfiber mops. With a back-and-forth motion, our cleaner will loosen the dirt and protect the finish. For spot-cleaning, apply our cleaner directly to the area and wipe clean with a terrycloth towel.
Protect Your Hardwood Floors
Place throw rugs in front of sinks in your kitchen and any doors leading outside where heavy traffic and tracking occurs. Do not do this until at least two weeks after the finish has been applied. Chairs, and any other furniture that is moved frequently, should have CarpetGlides™ floor protectors attached to the bottom of each leg to help prevent scratching and wear. Do not wax the bottom of chair legs.
