Vacuum Weekly.

Vacuuming at least once a week can eliminate all that food and dust you leave behind. Just use the correct nozzle on your vacuum to prevent scratching your beautiful wood floors and to efficiently pick up every dirty particle.

Dust Frequently.

It’s also key to dust your hardwood floors frequently. Although vacuuming your hardwood can suck up food and dust bunnies, you still need to dust any tiny particles left behind after you vacuum.

Eliminate Spots and Spills — Immediately.

Rather than waiting it out, be sure to wipe up spots and spills immediately after an accident occurs. If you wait too long, you can risk discoloration or your floors warping. Be especially careful if you use a humidifier in the winter, as these devices can also cause warping. Keep them away from hardwood floors and wipe up any dampness after use.
