Your home should be your sanctuary, so after having it designed and buying beautiful items, its really important to learn how to take care of everything properly so its keeps looking at its best and lasts for years to come!
Wooden floors are an investment in any home, if treated correctly they will last for a very long time. It’s very important to treat them right which will increase their lifespan and keep them looking like new:
1. Never use water to mop the floors, water can cause permanent damage to your floors and cause them to lift and bow. You can use a damp cloth to wipe up spills but never pour water directly on the floor. Instead use a barely damp flat mop with a micro fibre head.
2. Use felt stickers underneath furniture legs to prevent too much pressure on the floor causing dents, never drag furniture around when moving it, make sure you have enough hands before attempting to move anything and carefully lift and lay furniture down.
3. In high volume areas such as the back door always use a floor mat. The mat choice is important- opt for a cotton mat and move around to prevent a patch where the floors haven't been exposed. Steer away from rubber or vinyl mats as they will trap water under them.
