Wood Floor Polish Will Keep Hardwood Beautiful
Hardwood floors add an elegant, spacious look to any room and with proper ongoing care and maintenance can keep their luster and shine for years of enjoyment. Many people prefer wood floors because it so easily allows for complete decoration and style change of a room without having to replace the floor, as may be the case of linoleum or carpet. However, with this versatility comes a commitment to upkeep as to preserve the floor’s optimal longevity. Using wood floor polish will help to preserve the shine of hardwood floors as well as helping to mask imperfections such as scratches. Additionally, wood floor polish provides a protective coating against small scratches from dirt, and moisture damage in the event of spills or wet shoes.
Wood floor polish is also available in different shades to revive and enhance the wood’s natural color if it has become dull or faded over time. Commercial cleaning companies offer wood floor polish services as a single occurrence or as part of an overall deep cleaning service. Additionally, wood floor polish is available at retailers and home improvement stores along with any other materials needed to accomplish the job. If applying wood floor polish yourself, it is important to follow all directions carefully to prevent damage from occurring to the floor.
When using wood floor polish for the first time it is advisable to test a small, inconspicuous area and monitor for 24 hours to ensure no damage resulted from the use of a particular product. If the test area looks good after the initial period, the product can generally be considered safe for use on your floors.
To maintain the shine achieved by using a wood floor polish, there are measures which can be taken to care for your newly polished floor. Having people remove their shoes will prohibit scuffing while helping to maintain shine. Small dirt particles and pebbles tracked in on the soles of shoes can become embedded in a wood floor and result in surface scratches.
