Here are some tips on prolonging the life of your hardwood floor
Sweep wood floors often with a soft, fine-bristle broom.
Vacuum once or twice a week to remove dirt and sand. Use a soft brush attachment to minimize scratching.
Since water is one of the wood floor's worst enemies, get rid of water right away! Remove wet spills ASAP with soft towels or a wet/dry vacuum, and then dry thoroughly.
Use a very dry damp mop when mopping polyurethaned wood floors, since excess water can seep into seams and ruin a wood floor.
Consider using carpet runners (with non-skid pads) over wood floors in high traffic areas.
Vacuum area rugs and runners often so dirt doesn't filter down through the weave and scratch the wood underneath.
If possible, do not wear heavy shoes or high heels on hardwood floors, as some heels can cause dents.
Never drag furniture or other objects across a wood floor. Instead, clean the floor thoroughly to remove dust and grit, and then use "gliding" furniture pads underneath the piece to aid sliding it across the floor.
Install floor mats at each entrance, so you don't track in dirt from the bottoms of shoes.
Be sure to follow manufacturer recommendations to treat flooring scratches and dents. If an area of the finish is damaged by water, it may be difficult to fix it.
Use furniture pads to place under table and chair legs and on the feet of dressers and armoires. They can be purchased at a local hardware store or home center.
Some floors may require periodic waxing and buffing. Get recommendations from the manufacturer for the specific procedures for your floor.
Use area rugs in high traffic areas.
Always remove spills promptly. While small drips of water may not harm the floor, be sure not to let excess amounts of water sit on the floor.
