Care & Cleaning


Care and maintenance of your hardwood floor is as important as deciding which wood flooring to install. Cleaning plays an important role to the longevity of your investment, but attention to damage prevention is as important as well. Our skilled flooring installers take the utmost pride in their work, taking care not to damage pre-finished floors while installing. Keeping glue off the floor while installing a floor is very important.

We have seen many cleaners come and go over the years, so we offer an excellent and dependable hardwood floor cleaner along with the hardwood floor accessories and cleaning supplies to help keep your wood floor in the best condition possible.

General Wood Floor Maintenance and Care Guidelines
  • Place bristle type mats at all exterior door entries. These will collect larger pieces of grit or small stones that may damage your new floor.
  • Place area rugs at all entry points inside the home.
  • Place protectors under furniture legs and keep them free from grit. Each time the floor is swept or cleaned, check for any grit that may collect under a chair or furniture leg to prevent damage to your wood floor.
  • Place area rugs at all water areas. Kitchens are most important in this case. One may not be enough and we suggest others in front of the refrigerator, dishwasher and kitchen sink area.
  • Appliances need some type of protection when moved to prevent scratches and gouges in your beautiful wood floor.
