Austin Wood Floor Cleaner Shares 4 Upkeep Tips, West Lake Hills, Texas

Professional cleanings go a long way toward making your hardwood floors look gorgeous and increasing their life span. However, there are still some important tasks you should do between service appointments to keep them fresh and beautiful. The wood floor cleaners at Heaven's Best Carpet Cleaning in Austin, TX, share a few helpful tips on how to maintain your flooring. 

4 Maintenance Tips for Your Wood Flooring

1. Sweep & Mop

2. Clean Up Spills

One of the best ways to keep up with your hardwood flooring between service appointments is by staying on top of spills. As soon as you notice coffee, wine, or another substance spilling on your wood floors, sop it up immediately with a microfiber cloth. To avoid stains, you might also want to follow up with a gentle cleaning solution.

3. Vacuum

It never hurts to give your hardwood flooring a quick vacuuming about once every other week. Simply use the bare floor setting on your vacuum cleaner and run it over the surface area. Routine vacuuming will prevent larger debris from scratching and scuffing the surface of your hardwood flooring.

4. Use Rugs

Another excellent way to keep your wood floors clean and attractive is by using mats and area rugs, especially in doorways, hallways, and other high-traffic areas of your home. Rugs will play an important decorative role in your home, while also protecting your hardwood flooring from scrapes, stains, and other damages. This is especially important if you have pets or children who tend to run and play around the house.

While consistently maintaining your floor will drastically increase its life span, hiring a professional regularly can keep them looking beautiful for longer.
