When you bring something beautiful into your
home, it's almost as if you want to freeze it in time, so
it will always be a beautiful as when you bought it. That
is one of the best things about wood flooring. You can maintain
that beauty and even renew it occasionally, so you can enjoy
it for a lifetime.
Maintaining hardwood floors is so much easier
today than in past decades. Modern finishes on the market
today make cleaning your floor easier than ever. It is, however,
important to use the right products for your finish. Following
are some guidelines for maintaining the finish you've chosen
for your floor.
Using a humidifier in conjunction with
your furnace or air-conditioning system to maintain relative
humidity in your home at about 45 - 50% will maintain the
moisture in the wood and minimize cracks between the boards.
