Hardwood Care & Maintenance Guide

Preventative Care for Hardwood Floors

Protect Your Investment

Color loss & scratches are just a few examples of common types of damage to which hardwood floors are susceptible. Save time and money with the right preventative measures.

Hardwood reacts natural to UV rays from the sun, which can cause permanent discoloration. Use shades or other window treatments to minimize your floor’s exposure to radiation from direct sunlight.

Put pads and covers on the legs of furniture to avoid scratches & marks. Use care when moving heavy objects & never drag these items, as this can cause scuffing.

Also note that your pets’ nails can cause scratches, which can be reduced with regular trimming. Your pets’ urine can also cause stains and should be wiped up immediately.
