Hardwood Care & Maintenance

Hardwood flooring is a beautiful, natural product. As such, it requires specific care and maintenance to keep it in good shape for decades to come. Follow these simple tips from the experts at Hughes Floor Covering!

Daily care & maintenance

Sweep, vacuum, or dry mop your hardwood flooring on a regular basis. Make sure to check with your manufacturer’s care and maintenance guide, in addition to their list of approved vacuum cleaners, before caring for your new floors. If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution and follow their guidelines. If you find your floors need a periodical deep cleaning, always hire a local professional floor cleaning company. For recommendations, speak with one of our store representatives!

Dealing with spills 

Life happens, which means you'll more than likely need to deal with the occasional spill or stain. It's important to learn how to deal with these without damaging your flooring.

Most common spills, like liquids or pet accidents, will wipe away easily, especially on hardwood floors built with stain- and scuff-resistant technology. Wipe away liquid spills immediately, as hardwood flooring is not water-resistant. For other common stains like wax residue or nail polish, consult your manufacturer’s guidelines.
