Ways to maintain your investment for years to come.

Whether you’ve just installed hardwood flooring or have lived with it for many years, the care remains the same: Keep it simple and consistent. With a few supplies and a little knowledge, your floors will age beautifully and last for generations.

Regular care steps

  • Vacuum with a soft-bristle, non-marking brush to get rid of dirt and dust that’s accumulated.
  • For stubborn or sticky messes, use a gentle floor cleaner (we like this one) and a micro-fiber cloth (like this). Spray sparingly and buff with cloth to remove.
  • Stay away from products containing oils, harsh chemicals like ammonia, and rough cleaning pads and stiff-bristle brushes.
  • Avoid saturating your floors with liquids. Water and wood do not mix well!
  • For instances where a deeper clean is necessary, we like this floor mop and spray. Be sure no liquid is left to pool on your floorboards.
  • Humidity plays a role in how your floors perform. As seasons change, consider installing a humidity monitor (like this) to regulate how much moisture is in your home. Ideal indoor humidity level is between 30-50%.
