Protective Care and Maintenance

  • At Brian’s Flooring and Design, we know how important it is to follow a protective care and maintenance routine for your new hardwood floors.
  • Set out entry mats and doormats and remove all outdoor shoes before walking across your hardwood flooring.
  • To protect your hardwood floors from dents or indentations heavy furniture can leave over time, buy floor protectors.
  • Every day care and maintenance could include sweeping, vacuuming or dry moping your hardwood flooring. Make sure to check with your manufacturer’s care and maintenance guide, in addition to their list of approved vacuum cleaners, before caring for your flooring.
  • If you need a periodical deep clean, hire a local professional floor cleaning company. For recommendations, speak with any of store representatives!

Preventative Maintenance

Be mindful of preventative maintenance for your new hardwood flooring; frequently trim your pet’s nails or remove your high heels and heavy boots before walking across the floor. Since hardwood flooring is also sensitive to the indoor climate of your home, use a humidifier during the dry heating season and run a dehumidifier during inclement weather.
