Let’s first start with why home owners like them.
Even though they are expensive to install, if they are maintained properly they can last the lifetime of a house. Certainly can’t say the same for carpet!
One of the other major appeals of wood floors is that they are easy to keep clean.
And it’s also important to note, that some Realtors feel that houses with well maintained wood floors sell faster that homes with carpet.
Here’s some tips for maintaining wood floors.
(1) If the floors are in the entryway where snow, ice and water can get tracked in, make sure there is a place to take off shoes by the entryway. A good durable mat by the entryway can be a valuable investment.
(2) Vacuum them at least once a week to remove dirt and dust. Use a vacuum cleaner that doesn’t have a beater bar on it.
(3) Prevent scratches by placing felt protectors under the legs of furniture and be especially careful when you are moving the furniture.
(4) Minimize water exposure and clean up any liquid spills immediately.
