Why Should I Clean and Maintain My
Hardwood floors contribute significantly to the aesthetic of your home. But they are also an
investment. Protecting your hardwood floors is simple. By routinely cleaning,
you remove dust and dirt before it scratches and dulls finish, or wears away
the floor. You can now use products that are safe for your family and the
environment, and still have stunning hardwood floors that will last a lifetime.
So, after you're finished clearing the debris from your hardwood floors with your vacuum cleaner
, you'll want to use some products from these manufacturers to clean and polish them up.
How Often Should I Clean my Hardwood Floors?
This varies, depending on your household and the square footage of your wood
floors. The amount of foot traffic in your home is also a factor; kids, pets and environment all contribute to wear on your floor. That
said, Bona recommends cleaning as often as possible. As mentioned, you'll probably need to clean the
floors more frequently if you have kids and/or pets. Keeping your floor free from
dirt and dust helps prevents scuffs and scratches. A clean floor is a longer
lasting floor. Take a look at all of our cleaning supplies
