4 Tips for Making Your Wood Flooring Last, Brooklyn, New York

Wood is not only one of the most beautiful, classic flooring materials on the market, but it's also one of the most durable when it's cared for properly. If you take the right precautions, a well-installed, high-quality wood floor will last for generations. The team members at Wellington Carpet and Floors in Brooklyn are installation, repair, and remodeling experts serving all of New York City, and they have some tips for taking care of your investment.

If you have wood flooring, remember these pointers:

  • Remove Dirt Regularly: Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush or just sweep the floor on a regular basis to remove particles and dirt buildup that can damage the surface. Avoid using vacuums with heavy-duty beater bars or heads that spin.
  • Protect Against UV Radiation: While most scuffs, scratches, and gouges occur due to dropped furniture or floor-damaging shoes, exposure to the sun will significantly fade the finish over time. Install protective film or drapes on the windows will allow for greater control over the light that hits your flooring. 
  • flooringDry Spills Immediately: Don't let water from spills or leaks stand on your hardwood floor. Clean up the liquid immediately to prevent excessive swelling or warping.
  • Use a Humidifier: Running your heater during the winter can cause serious fluctuations in the humidity level inside your home. Keep the moisture in the air as static as possible by running humidifiers in rooms with hardware floors until you can shut the furnace off.
