Timber Floor Care – 101
Once you’ve had your timber floor sanding and polishing performed, you want to make sure that your timber floors remain at their best for years to come. Here’s some tips and tricks to timber floor care that can help you make that finish last.
Rugs & Mats
Having rugs and mats through high foot traffic areas is a great way to maintain your timber floor’s sanding and polishing. This protects the floors from dust and dirt, as well as from damage from shoes and pets. Place them where shoes are worn on the floors and under high use furniture.
Dirt & Dust
Dirt and dust are some of the biggest causes of long term damage to timber floors. After your timber floor polish, you want to ensure that you are sweeping the floors on a regular basis to get up any dirt that may have been brought in. You can also use a vacuum cleaner with the correct brush head attachment for timber floors.
Mats at Doors
As dirt and dust are a large part of why scratches occur on polished timber flooring, it’s important that you have door mats at all entry points. Encourage all who enter the home and get in the habit of wiping shoes before you enter the area with your timber polished floors. This will help to keep dust and dirt off your floors.
Shoes on the Floors
Different types of shoes can cause damage to your timber floors after a sand and polish. One of the biggest culprits is high heel shoes. As you walk on your timber floors with high heel shoes you can damage the surface. Be sure to remove high heel shoes before walking on your polished timber floors.
Follow these tips and tricks and you’ll be well on your way to maintaining your timber floor sanding and polishing results for years to come.
