Hardwood Care

Invest in entry mats and doormats and remove all outdoor shoes before walking across your hardwood flooring. To protect your hardwood floors from dents or indentations heavy furniture can leave over time, buy floor protectors to place on the legs or base. You should also consider investing in an area rug or two, as area rugs offer stylish protection for hardwood.

Everyday care and maintenance should include sweeping, vacuuming, and dry mopping your hardwood flooring. If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution and follow its instructions. If you need a periodic deep clean, hire a local professional. For recommendations, speak with any of our flooring experts!


Spill & Stain Removal

Life happens on our hardwood flooring, and the occasional spills and stains are just inevitable. Educating yourself on how to remove common household stains without damaging your flooring is important. Most common spills like liquids or pet accidents will wipe away clean, especially on hardwood floors with stain- and scuff-resistant technology built into the hardwood finish. Tend to liquid spills immediately, as hardwood flooring is not water-resistant. For other common stains like wax residue or nail polish, consult with your manufacturer’s guidelines or our common stain removal guidelines.
