IMPROVING THE CONDITION OF YOUR HARDWOOD FLOORING
Hardwood floors are a sought after feature for most homeowners due to the timelessness and high-quality appearance. Unfortunately, not all homeowners are taught how to optimally clean their hardwood floors. Top Quality has put together some helpful tips and instructions for cleaning hardwood floors to ensure your flooring is maintained to the highest standard.
Proper hardwood flooring care starts with daily and weekly cleaning regimes that can protect your floors from scratches, stains, swelling and discoloration. Using a microfiber sweeper pad on a daily basis prevents a build up of dirt, dust and granules which can cause minute scratches on your floors. Over time these scratches can cause your flooring to lose its gleam and create a patchy appearance. Microfiber sweeper pads are recommended over brooms because brooms often just push the dirt around, whereas the microfiber will trap the dirt and pull it off your floors all together.
For weekly cleaning, you may want to vacuum or mop. Before you pull out your vacuum, make sure that if it has a bar in the front, called a beater bar, that it does not hit the floor. If it does try to remove the beater bar if you can as this can damage your flooring. Water and wood are not a good mix! Instead of using a wet mop, use the best hardwood floor cleaner specifically for your flooring from Top Quality and apply directly to your floor. Then use a dry mop or microfiber sweeping pad to spread the product and pick up any excess resin.
