How to Maintain a Wood Floor 

Here are some tips on maintaining your wood floor:

Don't Damp Mob
Use the manufacturer's recommended cleaning products on your hardwood floor. Water and wood floors don't mix!

Wipe spills immediately.

Do not wax a Urethane Floor   
Never use a wax on a polyurethane finish. The wax will cause a sticky film to build up on your floor, allowing any dirt tracked onto it to stick.

Use chair glides
Use felt protectors or furniture coasters under all feet on any furniture that rest directly on the hardwood floor.

Vacuum Regularly
Vacuum using a soft bristle brush attachment.
