How to take care of hardwood flooring

If it's been a while, you'll be amazed when you walk into a store and see the rich, warm tones of the wood samples. These floors add beauty to a home, and they'll only increase your property values.

Unique Flooring Solutions has been in business for almost 20 years. You'll notice that the word "unique" is in our company name because we strive to make every remodel a special, positive, easy experience for all our customers.

Even before we go to a potential customer's home for an estimate, we meet with them first to explain every step of the process and address all of their concerns and challenges. We want them to be as knowledgeable as possible so that nothing comes as a surprise.

What about water damage?

Solid hardwood can warp and cup when exposed to liquid.

If a flood or leak occurs, remove any nearby wet items, including rugs and towels. Use humidifiers, fans and, weather permitting, open windows.

Disinfect the flooring. Don't ignore this step; standing water harbors bacteria that not only harms your floors but also your health.

Water can, however, hide under planks. It's not always possible to get it all so if you have any concerns, call our company and speak to a retailer.

There's another hardwood, engineered, where only the construction is different, Nothing else changes. Engineered is a little more stable and can handle moisture better but, like most anything, it shouldn't be submerged in puddles. If you have a big flood, follow the same steps as you would for solid hardwood.

Everyday care

  • Vacuum hardwood floors several times a week, daily if possible. Please be sure to remove beater bars (rotating brushes) as they can scratch. Soil and dirt also scratch so this is an important step.
  • Damp-mop (make sure it's very well-wrung) with a manufacturer-approved cleaner periodically
  • Strategically put mats in front of sinks or near entrances so people can wipe their feet and not drag in soil and moisture
  • Avoid wearing stilettos on the floor and keep pet nails trimmed.
  • Use protective pads on furniture when moving.

If you're remodeling your home or business, or completing a new construction project, choose hardwood flooring from Unique Flooring Solutions for the perfect finishing touch. From custom designs to hard-to-find species, we've got everything you need to make a statement with your wood floors.
