If you love the attractive look of wood floors but hate how they show every little bit of dirt and grime, this blog post is for you. Hardwood is a great flooring option, but it can be tough to keep your home looking its best. So, if you are ready to brighten up your hardwood flooring, here are five simple ways to help you achieve the look of a brand new floor.
- Vacuum Regularly
Hardwood floors are a joy to walk on, but they can be tough on your vacuum cleaner. Dirt and dust can get embedded in notoriously porous wood floors, which can make it hard to remove them with a broom or mop.
Vacuuming regularly can help prevent your hardwood floor from looking dull. If you vacuum your floors every day, you will have less dirty debris on the floor than someone who only vacuums once every two weeks.
- Sweep Away Dirt and Dust
If you can’t vacuum the floor, try sweeping it instead. All hardwood floors are dense and do not allow dirt to penetrate the surface. Dust and dirt should be swept up regularly to keep the floor looking as clean as possible.
- Clean Simple Stains
Don’t panic if a glass of spilled red wine, or worse, ends up on your wood floors. Instead, clean up the spill as quickly as possible using a soft cloth with warm water and mild soap. Let the stain set, then try to remove it with a damp (not wet) cloth.
- Polish Regularly
The shine of your hardwood floor is determined by the polish. If you want to give your floor a fresh look, it’s best to practice regular floor maintenance often. Use a mild dishwashing liquid to wipe down your floors as needed. Rinse with warm water. Then, polish with a special polish made for wood floors.
- Hire a Professional
Junk, grease, and stains that lie on the hardwood floor can be tough to remove. If you can’t remove them yourself, hire a professional to do the job. This can save you money and time while ensuring your floors stay clean.
