How to Care for Engineered Hard Wood Floors
Engineered wood floor has exploded in popularity during the last decade. This is because a lot of homeowners wanted the look of wood flooring, but don’t want the maintenance that comes with it. Luckily, they have found their match with the best-engineered wood floor.
As with any type of flooring, you need to take good care of your engineered wood floor in order to get the most out of your investment. The good news is that it does not require much upkeep. This blog post can serve as your guide on how to keep your flooring looking great for many years and maximize its strength and flexibility.
One of the main reasons why people opt for the best-engineered wood is because it’s easy to care and maintain. But that doesn’t mean that you should neglect regular cleaning.
Dust, dirt, sand and debris may act like sand paper, which can damage your flooring and remove its lustre. As such, you need to sweep the floor with a soft bristled brush 2 to 3 times a week to remove all dust, dirt, and other particles and prevent them from being ground into the floor. Also,use a damp mop with a small amount of cleaner and vacuum the floor at least once a week.
Use area rugs
Shoes with spikes and high-heeled shoes can cause severe damage to your flooring. To help retain the original look of your flooring, we suggest that you remove yours before entering the house. If that’s not amenable for you, consider placing area rugs in high traffic areas to prevent damage.
Clean up spills immediately
While engineered floors may cope better with moisture than hardwood flooring, it is not designed for long exposure to moisture.
Make sure that you clean up spills the moment it happens. Otherwise, it may cause irreversible damage. If left unattended and left to dry, liquids such as wine, blood or ink are likely to leave a stain. Keep your engineered wood floor clean and dry to avoid potential damage.
