Brazilian Cherry Prefinished Hardwood Flooring

Routinely cleaning your hardwood floors can help you maintain the appearance and quality of the floors for years to come. If dirt and grit are not removed from your flooring, it can lead to nicks and marks on the surface. In order to prevent this from happening, you can vacuum and mop your floors at least once a week. Microfiber mops are best to make sure dirt is lifted.

If you live with a pet, their nails can lead to scratches on your floor. Trimming your pet’s nails or claws on a routine basis can prevent them from becoming overgrown and damaging your floors.

You may not think of your shoes as something that can damage your floors, but the sharp edges and dirt of your shoes can actually lead to marks on your floor. You should definitely avoid wearing heels or cleats in the house, and dirty shoes should be worn only on mats or rugs.

Furniture is a must-have in your home, but it can damage your hardwood floors. To reduce the amount of damage heavy furniture can do to your floors, consider placing your furniture on rugs or felt pads. This can protect your floors from scratching that can happen from the natural shifting of furniture when it is sat on.
