How to Maintain a Hardwood Floor

HINT: Less is More.

Natural beauty doesn't require a lot of upkeep and maintaining hardwood floors shouldn't be a drag.

For these reasons, Olde Wood hardwood floors require just a few simple measures to keep your wide plank wood floor looking its best! Regardless of the hardwood floor installation methods, hardwood floors should be regularly dust mopped to keep dirt and other abrasives away and damp-mopped to maintain the warm glow that will make your floor stand out. Our experts can help you choose the right hardwood species to fit your specific living area, traffic level and desired wear-resistance.

As there are numerous finish methods and coating types for hardwood floors, we recommend working with your installer to determine the best wood plank flooring maintenance and cleaning method for the type of finish they applied. For wet-cleaning floors that were finished on-site, simply follow the manufacturer's instructions found on the label.
