3 Tips for Cleaning & Polishing Wood Floors, West Lake Hills, Texas

Hardwood floors are a timeless investment suitable for any room in the house. If you take good care of them, they will maintain their natural beauty for decades to come. Clean and polish them with a specialized wood floor cleaner to protect them from the effects of daily use. Follow these simple guidelines to maximize the potential of your flooring.

How to Care for Wood Flooring

1. Sweep Away Dirt & Debris

The dirt you track into the house every day gets caught in the cracks between your wood planks. Sweep and vacuum regularly to keep that dirt from settling deep into the floor.

High-traffic areas may require daily sweeping, especially if you have pets or children, while rarely-used spaces can get by with weekly cleaning. Avoid tough-bristled brooms that can scratch the floor; a soft microfiber duster is ideal.

2. Mop & Dry

Use a specialized wood floor cleaner, which won’t have harsh chemicals that would eat through the finish. Wring your mop until it’s almost dry before using it since excess moisture can warp the floors. Once you’re finished, wipe the wood dry.

3. Polish

Polishing should be done every two to five months, depending on how much wear your floors get. Make sure to sweep and mop the wood before you polish. Let them dry completely, then apply the polish with an applicator pad or foam roller. Work with the wood grain and do one small section at a time. The polish will restore that gorgeous shine and protect the finish.
