Essential Tips for Maintaining Your Sanded Floors

Maintaining your sanded floors is crucial to preserving their beauty and longevity. At Artisan Flooring, we provide expert advice on how to care for your newly sanded floors. Follow these tips to keep your floors looking pristine for years to come.

Daily and Monthly Care Tips

Regular maintenance is essential for keeping your floors in top condition. Daily care involves sweeping or vacuuming to remove dirt and debris that can cause scratches. Use a soft-bristle broom or a vacuum with a hardwood floor attachment to avoid damaging the surface.

Monthly maintenance includes cleaning your floors with a damp mop and a pH-neutral hardwood floor cleaner. Avoid excessive water, as it can damage the wood. A professional cleaning and inspection every year can address any potential issues early and keep your floors in excellent shape.

Avoiding Common Mistakes

Using too much water when cleaning is a common mistake. Water can seep into the wood, causing swelling and long-term damage. Always use a damp, not wet, mop and dry any spills promptly.

Neglecting to use protective pads under furniture can also damage your floors. Heavy furniture can scratch and dent the floor if not properly cushioned. Place felt pads under chair legs, tables, and other heavy items to prevent damage.

Preparing for Floor Sanding

Proper preparation is key to a successful floor sanding project. Before our team arrives, remove all furniture and decorations from the room. Cover nearby fixtures and seal off adjacent rooms to prevent dust from spreading. Clean the floor thoroughly to remove any dirt and debris, ensuring a smooth sanding process and a better final result.
