Blog How to Maintain Your New Floors: Tips from Cut a Rug Flooring Installation Pros Apr 22, 2024

Congratulations on your new floors from Cut a Rug Flooring Installation! We want to ensure that your investment stays in top condition for years to come. Here are some expert tips from our flooring installation pros on how to maintain your new floors.

1. Regular Cleaning One of the simplest ways to maintain your new floors is by regularly cleaning them. Different types of flooring require different cleaning methods, so be sure to follow the manufacturer's recommendations. For hardwood floors, sweep or vacuum regularly to remove dust and debris. For tile or laminate floors, use a damp mop to clean the surface.

2. Use Area Rugs To protect high-traffic areas of your floors, consider using area rugs. Place rugs in entryways, hallways, and other areas where there is heavy foot traffic. This will help minimize wear and tear and extend the life of your floors.

3. Avoid Water Damage Water can be a flooring's worst enemy, causing warping, swelling, and mold growth. Be sure to clean up any spills immediately to prevent water damage. Also, avoid wet mopping hardwood floors as excess water can seep into the wood and cause damage.

4. Protect Against Furniture To prevent scratches and dents on your floors, use furniture pads or coasters under heavy pieces of furniture. When moving furniture, lift it instead of dragging it across the floor to avoid causing damage.

5. Trim Pet's Nails If you have pets in your home, keep their nails trimmed to prevent scratches on your floors. Consider using rugs or mats in areas where your pets spend a lot of time to protect the floors from scratches.

6. Maintain Humidity Levels Fluctuations in humidity can cause hardwood floors to expand and contract, leading to gaps or warping. Use a humidifier in the winter and a dehumidifier in the summer to maintain consistent humidity levels in your home.

7. Schedule Regular Maintenance In addition to regular cleaning, it's important to schedule professional maintenance for your floors. At Cut a Rug Flooring Installation, we offer floor refinishing, repair, and maintenance services to keep your floors looking like new.
