Protecting Your Floors – Part 2

Hardwood Floor Care

Don’t Use Oil Soaps – There are many over the counter oil-based soaps that can damage or dull the finish of your hardwood floor. The best suggestion is to only use the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning products on your hardwood flooring.

Never Wax a Urethane Floor – If you have a polyurethane finish on your hardwood floors you should never apply a wax. The wax may leave a sticky film on your floor which will attract and hold dirt. Always use the manufacturer’s recommended polishes and cleaners.
