3 Ways To Maintain Hardwood Floors

Keep your hardwood floors glowing like new with these simple tips.

  • Stick to the basics. A simple solution of ½ cup white or apple cider vinegar mixed with a gallon of water is a natural and frugal way to make your hardwoods shine.
  • Turn off the brushes. When vacuuming hardwoods, be sure to turn off the rotating brushes, as these can damage the floor’s finish.
  • Hide scratches. Choose a crayon that matches your floor color and rub the scratch until the gap is full. Use a hair dryer to heat the area for a few minutes, then buff with a soft cloth.
