  1. Hardwood floors can be a great investment, but they need to be taken care of properly to ensure they last.

  2. Thanks so much for posting this! Maintenance for prefinished wood flooring includes regular sweeping, vacuuming, and/or dust-mopping. Clean all spills immediately with a damp cloth and use a specialty non-wax prefinished hardwood floor cleaner to maintain the quality of the material. We recommend Bona and Karhs cleaning products.
