Hardwood flooring can completely change the look of any living space. With so many hardwood flooring options to choose from, you can create a space with a more rustic look or a more modern look depending on your style and just by switching to hardwood flooring. Because of its versatility and fairly low maintenance, replacing your current flooring and putting in hardwood flooring is almost always a great design idea.
Once your hardwood flooring is in place, you will want to maintain it in order to get the most life out of it. Because of winter weather conditions like snow and ice, caring for your hardwood flooring in the colder months of the year could present new challenges. Our team at Magnus Anderson wants to help protect your hardwood flooring investment, so here are a couple of tips to keep in mind.
Keep moisture off of your hardwood flooring. When water from snow and ice are tracked into your home and onto your hardwood flooring, wipe it up as soon as possible. When a spill happens, clean it up quickly. Do not allow liquid to sit on the floor for a long period of time.
You should consider placing a mat for wet winter shoes and clothes outside your doors and possibly inside your doors as well. Create a space in your entryway for all wet clothes and shoes to go, so that snow and ice are not dragged into your home.
Every once in awhile, North Carolina will see a winter snow and ice storm. Save your hardwood flooring from being scratched in the winter by sweeping or vacuuming up rock salt on a regular basis that may be tracked inside. Use a floor cleaner that is specifically made for your type of hardwood flooring.
Your hardwood flooring is made to last for many years to come. With a little maintenance, they will continue to look beautiful for a long time.
