There are plenty of benefits to hardwood floors as opposed to carpeting. Not only does it add a classic look and feel to your home, but it’s also a lot easier to clean. At Floor Craft Sanding, we know that proper floor care is essential to ensuring that your hardwood floors continue looking pristine for years to come.

Tips for Keeping Your Floors Spotless
Think of everything you bring home with you on your shoes. Whether you know it or not, you are likely tracking in small pebbles, dirt, gravel, and more. Consider the impact these things can have on your hardwood floor over time. The debris can begin to set into the floor over time, ruining the finish and causing it to lose its shine. To avoid this, we recommend the following tips:
- Vacuum frequently to prevent debris from accumulating. Using a broom to sweep the floors will likely prove ineffective as the dust will eventually settle and sink right back down into the flooring. A vacuum cleaner or microfiber dust mop is your better option. Though it might not be necessary to clean all the floors, high-traffic areas like hallways and the kitchen would be good to clean more often.
- Look for a vacuum that won’t scuff your floor. Many vacuums have beater bars that can chip the floor’s finish, so try to find one that is detachable.
- Try out a doormat! Welcome mats are more than just for looks. Invest in one that is wide enough that you’ll have to step on it a few times before reaching the wood flooring. By keeping it at the entrance of your home, visitors will have a chance to wipe their shoes before tracking the outdoors onto your clean floors.
- Take your shoes off at the door. If possible, try to have people take off their shoes when entering your home. This way, you are not only cutting back the dirt that is brought in, but you are avoiding scuffs and chips from shoes like high heels.
