There are so many things that we should not do with our floorings. The primary thing to consider is not to use ammonia, bleach, regular floor cleaner, dusting products. Also, avoid using wax on a floor that has a glossy finish or urethane. We should never wash our flooring we can use a damp mop to clean but not with a mop that is dripping with water. In our effort to maintain the proper condition of our flooring, there are also protective and repair measure that we must follow. For example if there are burn marks in the hardwood, we can lightly sand the affected part, use a damp cloth to remove the grit and then we can refinish them. Scratches and gouges can be concealed using wood putty. We should let the wood putty dry and then we can sand them and refinish.
Some owners (who apparently have an abundance of time on their hands) opt for dog booties when their dog is indoors. This sounds like one of the more tedious methods of dealing with dogs tearing into hardwood flooring. Another solution is dog nail covers. These are plastic caps that you can buy for your dog's nails that stay in place with an included adhesive. They can be purchased in a clear color or in other colors, and they stay in place for about 8 weeks. One of the issues that dog owners have cited with these is that sometimes the nail grows within the cap and the cap needs to be cut off. Dog nails aren't dead and nerve-free like human nails are. They have a vein of blood running through them, and if the nail gets too truncated, there could be pain for the dog.

When a more in-depth cleaning is required, use a cleaning method appropriate to the finish on your floor. If your floor has a glossy finish, it means that polyurethane, or a water-based urethane, or a similar finish has been used to form a protective barrier over the hardwood. If it has a matte finish, it means that the floor is protected with a penetrating seal of oil and/or wax. On neither of these finishes is water an acceptable cleaning agent, but both of them can accept a surface, damp-mop cleaning, which means the mop is not wet but only damp to the touch. You are cleaning only the surface and not using enough water to penetrate even the oiled-and-waxed hardwood. When using a damp mop on oil and waxed hardwood, you can add a little neutral ph hardwood floor cleaner to the water before dipping the mop into it. A floor with a protective glossy barrier can accept a generic hardwood floor cleaner providing it doesn't contain any wax or oil.
