Hardwood wood is a long-lasting flooring solution, however hardwood floors take a lot of wear from foot traffic, spills, pets’ scratches and scuffs, if you have pets. Your flooring may be worn by moving furniture, wearing shoes indoors, or kids playing with rough toys. However, if you don’t maintain your hardwood floors well and frequently, you risk scratching or dulling them. In this article, we will share the easy-to-follow tips, whether to do it yourself or make sure your housekeeper from cleaning company follows proper routine. Dubai housekeeping one of the reputed house cleaning services company  will share tips for routine upkeep to a thorough deep clean. Remember that not all hardwood floors require the same level of maintenance; it will depend on your lifestyle and the amount of traffic it receives.

How to keep Hardwood floor clean

Hardwood floors should generally be swept or dusted every few days, vacuumed once per week, and deep cleaned every one to two months or as needed. Here’s how to prevent having to mop your floors as frequently:

  1. Spills should be cleaned up right once because if they are left to dry on the floor, they will degrade the finish and draw in more dirt. Immediately dab spills using an absorbent cloth.
  2. Keep your floors dry since liquids can damage hardwood floors. Letting water sit on the floor is the worst thing you can do.
  3. Adopt a no-shoe policy: Grit and dirt are abrasive and can eventually scratch floors. We are firm believer in taking shoes off as soon as we come in, because this simple act goes a long way to eliminating virtually all of the tracked-in dirt that can wreak havoc on a wood floor’s finish.

Trained maids in Dubai Housekeeping are aware about flooring type and will clean according to each type of  floor. Dubai housekeeping provides the best maid service.

Regular Cleaning of Hardwood Floors

Having hardwood floors regularly swept or vacuumed will save you time in the long run as you won’t need to wet-clean them as frequently.

  1. Use a broom or microfiber dust mop to quickly and easily remove dust, debris, and crumbs that accumulate during the day. This will lessen the risk of scratching on your floors.
  2. Vacuum your hardwood floors every few days, based on the volume of traffic in your home. A canister vacuum is the ideal for hardwood floors since it has a long, oval floor brush attached that can fit into tight spots. To prevent the rotating brush from harming your flooring if you only have an upright type, make sure to switch it off.

Deep Cleaning of Hardwood Floors

A deeper clean is required if you find dirt, filth, or food spills that cannot be removed by sweeping or vacuuming. Dubai housekeeping provides quality deep cleaning service at affordable rates. Things that should remember while deep cleaning a hardwood floor.

  1. Wet-clean hardwood floors with Hardwood Floor Cleaner Spray. Spray the cleaner over a tiny 3-foot-by-3-foot area and use a microfiber mop to remove any dissolved debris from the surface.
  2. Cleaning one little spot at a time, work your way around the whole floor.
  3. If you come across a place that requires a fast touch-up, clean it with a paper towel soaked with water and wipe it dry.

Expert Tip: We do not advise using vinegar to clean wood floors. Certain hardwood flooring coatings can be damaged or dulled by the acidic solution.
