Caring for wooden floors

Hard wearing, durable wooden flooringYour wooden floors are your home’s best asset. Caring for them is very important to maintain its beauty and elegance. Here are tips on how to care for your wooden floors:

Wooden floors need proper maintenance and caring. Remember, prevention is better than cure so here are the things that can harm your wooden flooring:

Sun

Sunlight that directly hits your wooden floor can cause it to develop gaps, fade or just dry out. Extreme sun exposure can affect the performance of your floor’s elegant finish. Window blinds or dark shaded curtains can prevent this from happening. It blocks the sun’s direct light from entering your house therefore reducing its damage to your wooden floors. Using blinds and curtains can also enhance the visual appeal of your house.

Sand

Sand is another thing that could cause harm to your wooden floors without you knowing it. This is due to sand particles which are brought inside on your  footwear; they became like sandpaper which can cause unwanted scratches and marks on your wooden floors. To keep this from happening, the best thing to do is to have a mat outside your door, this will filter out sand particles and prevent it from entering your house.

You can also choose to ask people to remove their shoes upon entering your house. Floor mats in entry areas of your home so that they filter the sand and dirt. This will avoid them from damaging your lovely wooden floors. When you see sand on the floor it is best to sweep it up as soon as you can to avoid it being transferred through your home.

When prevention is properly implemented, maintenance will then be easy. Basic yet regular sweeping, cleaning, vacuuming and mopping will definitely keep your floor in best condition. Spot mopping  needs be done immediately when liquid spillage happen. When spill occur, mop them up immediately to prevent staining your wooden floors. If you already have a stain on your floor, you can contact West Cost Timbers, a specialist in wooden floors, to get professional advice with your particular need. Always check your vacuum cleaners brushes. Check if it is already worn out, replace it instantly as it well scratch your floor.

Damp mopping and dry mopping are two different techniques of cleaning your wooden floor. Damp mopping should be done with proper knowledge of your floors condition, always see to it that the finish is still intact to avoid damaging your wooden floor. When performing damp mopping, you should wet the mop first then wring it out properly before damp mopping. Keep in mind to avoid using abrasive cleaners or detergents when damp mopping as they are proven harsh to your wooden floor.

Dry mopping on the other hand can be done without you having to worry about damaging your wooden floor.

How to clean wood furniture properly

burl table with flower box underneathCleaning wood furniture can seem a bit scary but it’s not.
Preventing dust build up with a great idea for the health of your family and to help prevent allergies.

Ways to clean your wood furniture properly:

  1. Dust the surfaces
  2. Don’t use spray polish
  3. Vacuum regularly

Dust the surfaces

Regularly dust the wood furniture by using soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid using feather dusters as they often have sharp quills that may cause scratches on the wood surface and are not always effective in removing dirt. Make sure to follow the direction of the grain to prevent the build-up of grime.

Don’t use spray polish

Never use spray polish as it can dull your wood furniture. Spray polish will simply give you that fragrant of a clean smell but not actually remove any dirt.

Stay hygienic by regularly checking every corner of your furniture to maintain dust free air rather than spreading the fragrant smell of spray polish that contains chemical which can cause health problems. Silicon sprays add a coating to wood which over time can cause the wood to deteriorate.

Tv Cabinet 1Vacuum regularly

Tidy away any build-up of grime that will damage your furniture over a periods of time. Vacuuming can deep clean your furniture removing dirt particles that have been caught in the edges of your furniture.

Nowadays, good wooden furniture can be difficult to get. It is just a good thing that there are still some traditional shops and mills out there who still sell and make good wooden furniture.

Wood furniture gives a very natural feeling, close to earth impression which brings a wonderful quality and ambience to your home no matter what style of décor you choose. No other furniture can match the way wood makes you feel when you come home and walk past that special piece that is freshly polished and gleaming and waiting for you to use.

buffetWealthy and influential people in the 19th century invested in antique wooden furniture such as priceless wooden writing desk and grand pianos. They have completely disregarded the fact that these pieces are extremely expensive because they were mesmerized by their exquisite look and the status it brought them.

It is amazing how one piece of furniture can lighten up a whole room by adding a touch of class and sophistication and often you will be surprised at how affordable that piece can be.

Wooden furniture really has it all. There is nothing better than the elegance, beauty and sophistication of that wonderful piece that will fit perfectly with your décor and lift it to a new level.
