Hardwood floors bring a beautiful aesthetic to any room. Today’s floors can also offer an artistic feel with dark colors, wide planks, unique textures and even patterns. Maintaining the look of hardwood floors all depends on the history of the surface and a gentle cleaning routine.
For newly installed floors, understand the type of finish used on the wood. Most new floors are sealed with a polyurethane finish. However, there are other finishing methods, like natural penetrating oil, that may require a different kind of care. Consider a regular routine to keep floors looking great.
