A wood floor is subject to the unavoidable wear of daily life in your home. Here are some helpful pointers on how to minimize wear and keep your wood floors looking fresh.

Place a door mat on both sides of all entrances to your home. This will keep out gravel and dirt that can scratch your floors
Sweep larger pieces of dirt before vacuuming or mopping to further avoid scratching.

Use protective pads on all furniture that comes into direct contact with the floor. Choose soft pads made from materials like felt that won’t leave a mark
If you spill water on your wood floor, wipe it up immediately
