Quick And Easy Hardwood Maintenance
Hardwood flooring is an enduring classic and with good reason. It’s beautiful, strong, and capable of a long lifespan in your home with the proper care and maintenance.
What, you ask, is the proper care and maintenance for hardwood floor?
Glad you asked!
Hardwood is not a waterproof flooring material. While it’s easy to care for, it does need to be handled differently than a vinyl or a porcelain tile. Hardwood is natural, from trees (duh) or, in the case of bamboo, from grass, and therefore is subject to the same expansion and contraction from moisture. You can use the same cleaning procedures for an engineered hardwood floor and a solid hardwood floor.
If you’re interested in a green cleaning method, why not try a spot of tea? Boil a pot of water and steep two black tea bags. Then, damp-clean your hardwood like you would with any other solution. Black tea’s natural tannic acid brings a great shine to hardwood.

Caring for your hardwood floors doesn’t have to be difficult, expensive, or time-consuming! All it takes is a little bit of regular maintenance to keep your floors beautiful for life.
