DIY Tips for Maintenance

While professional restoration is essential for addressing significant damage, regular maintenance has a role to play as well! Here are some of the things you can do to keep your floor looking great, whether that’s before or after you have taken advantage of our services.

  • Routine Cleaning: Clean your floor regularly, as dust and debris can not only look unsightly but cause damage to your floor. Use a soft-bristled broom or vacuum with a hardwood floor attachment to prevent scratches.
  • Avoid Excess Moisture: Wood flooring is susceptible to water damage, so avoid excessive moisture exposure. Immediately wipe up spills, and lay mats at your front and back doors to trap moisture and dirt.
  • Use Protective Pads: Place felt or rubber pads beneath your furniture legs to prevent scratches and dents caused by movement. Ensure these pads are replaced every so often to maintain their effectiveness.
  • Sunlight Protection: Minimise direct sunlight exposure where you can to prevent fading and discolouration of your wood flooring. Keep curtains and blinds shut on sunny days, and look into things like UV-blocking window film too.
