The biggest problem with hardwood floors is getting them scratched by the demands that simply living on them causes. You must take care when moving things around on hardwood floors. When living on hardwood floors, do not drag anything across them when moving furniture or other heavy objects. Use large area rugs under heavy furniture, and keep pads under furniture legs, as these will move when sat upon or brushed up against. These will dig into the wood if left unprotected. Large dogs with toenails that click as they walk can do a lot of damage to hardwoods. Even small dogs and cats can damage hardwood floors. If their toenails are clicking on your hardwoods, it is time to clip them back. Have a door mat so people can clean the soles of their shoes before they walk on the hardwoods.
The most prominent element that makes hardwood become unclean is dirt and grit. If these elements are not properly removed, they can cause scratch or marks on your flooring. To clean your hardwood flooring is as easy as sweeping and dusting or a regular basis. Daily sweeping is not also advisable because they can cause damage to the hardwood. To sweep the floor at least once a week is the best thing that can be done except of course when there are especial occasions that need proper cleaning. It is better to use vacuum cleaners compared to sweeping and scrubbing. If the flooring that you have in your home is made with shining or glossy finish, you can use a damp mop because the hardwood is protected with either oil or wax. When using a damp mop, make sure that there is no water spills being drifted on the floor. Some people also make use of neutral pH hardwood floor cleaner while cleaning or mopping the floor.
