The Best Ways to Clean Your Hardwood Floor


When it comes to keeping your Denver hardwood floor clean, you should know a few ways that won’t damage refinished or newly installed hardwood floors. There are many different types of cleaners available – and some are more beneficial than others. TGB flooring has a few tips to help you use the right tools:
  • Vacuum first: sometimes dirt deposits in the seams of your hardwood floor. Save yourself some time with the mop by quickly vacuuming the area beforehand.
  • Make sure you use a water-based cleaner: To avoid dulling the beautiful finish on your hardwood floors, don’t use any chemicals that might strip the top coating. PH neutral cleaners will prevent losing the sheen on your refinished hardwood.
  • Use a damp mop, not a wet one: Keep water damage to a minimum by making sure your mop is not too wet.
While these cleaning methods will help extend the life of your Colorado hardwood floor, repairs and refinishing still remain inevitable at some point. TGB Flooring can help restore and refinish your Denver hardwood flooring – just give us a call!
