It is possible that we are biased considering our passion for wooden floors and restoring them to like-new. However, it is arguable that this flooring type is one of the most popular because of its ability to fit seamlessly with any décor.
Why Choose A Wooden Floor?
The reasons as to why you would select a wooden floor include:
- Wood floors are multifunctional
- Wooden floors can be laid in many different rooms
- They can withstand high foot traffic
- They require low maintenance
- They can look better with age
- They can be restored if required
Once a wood floor is laid it will start to experience daily wear and tear. This is unavoidable but should not be seen as daunting. There are ways in which you can reduce the risk of wear or even damage to your newly-laid floor.
Keep Your Wood Floors Safe
There are different ways in which you can keep your wood floors safe from damage. Here are some of our top tips:
Place matting outside and inside of every external doorway. Particles that would otherwise enter your property will be gathered on the matting. Having two mats will ensure maximum removal of larger and smaller particles.
Make sure to sweep daily. This will reduce the build-up of particles on the surface. If these particles are left they will be carried around on people’s feet and will work to further deteriorate your floor. This is a process that won’t take long but will provide maximum benefit to ensure the longevity of your floor.
When you are attempted to clean your wood floor it is important that you have the correct tools, products and techniques. It may be that you are looking to clean a specific mark or you are cleaning the floors surface.
Make sure that the products you use are floor-type specific and won’t damage the finish. Do not scrub the surface with anything abrasive and make sure to use as little water as possible. Any water left on the surface will likely leave a stain or mark that is exceptionally difficult to remove.
If you find yourself in the position where your wood floors are looking dull and damaged, don’t forget about our wood floor sanding and restoration service. This will strip back the old finishes and top layer of the wood to reveal a new, fresh layer underneath.
