Keep Your Hardwood Looking Great

  • Invest in mats for entryways and remove all outdoor shoes before walking across your hardwood flooring.
  • Heavy furniture can leave dents in hardwood over time. Use floor protectors on all table and chair legs.
  • Sweep, vacuum, and dry mop your hardwood flooring regularly to keep it looking its very best.

Dealing with Spills & Stains

Occasional spills and stains are inevitable, especially if you have pets or kids. Luckily, most liquid spills will wipe away simply with a cloth. But you'll want to do this as quickly as possible, as hardwood flooring is not water-resistant.

Other spills, such as wax or nail polish, are more complex. Check with your manufacturer's care instructions before attempting to tackle these!
