Q. What is the best way to clean hardwood floors?
A. Place mats or rugs at entryways or other traffic areas to minimize the amount of dirt and debris that gets onto your floors. Make sure the protective coverings you use are designed for wood floors. Some rubber-backed mats can trap moisture, damaging floors in the process. The best way to clean your hardwood floors is with vinegar and water. Use 1 cup of vinegar to 1 gallon of water. Vacuum with a fine horse hair brush, not a beater brush.
Depending on the amount of traffic in your home, we recommend polishing the floors every 2-3 months with a hardwood floor polish and sanding and refinishing approximately every 3-5 years.
Q. Is it safe to use hardwood flooring in a kitchen?
A. Use caution when installing hardwood flooring in a kitchen. A kitchen is prone to food and liquid spills which can raise the wood's grain or permanently stain or damage a hardwood floor's finish. Be sure to wipe up spills immediately with a dry, clean cloth.
