How to keep a wooden floor looking as good as new?

Wooden flooring can add a timeless and cosy element to any room, as well as create a clean, easy to maintain surface for some of the most heavily-used rooms in the house. It really doesn’t take very much to keep a wooden floor looking as good as new, adn here are some tips to help you doing it!

Avoid scratches and scuffs early -You can start protecting the floor from the moment it is fitted by adding felt pads to the bottoms of any cabinets, tables and chairs which are likely to be moved across the floor. These are inexpensive and will make all of the difference to the condition of the floor over time. It may also be a good idea to make it a rule within the home that people take their shoes off when they come in.

Regular cleaning- Although wooden flooring is much easier to maintain than carpets, it still does require regular upkeep. The easiest way for you to do this is with a dust pad on a broom handle. This will pick up all of the dust, hair and micro fibres and make for a much cleaner result than simply using a vacuum cleaner. If you are going to use a vacuum cleaner, remember to flip down the brushes on the head to avoid scratches on the floor. You can use water to clean the flooring, but remember that a sponge is better than a mop!

Regular sanding and waxing- Obviously this doesn’t need to be performed all of the time, but regular floor sanding and waxing will bring the floor back to life in a way that cleaning cannot. Even once every year or so will have the floor looking like it was just laid.
