Hardwood Care & Maintenance

Protective Care and Maintenance

At Kimi's Carpets Plus Flooring, we know how important it is to follow a protective care and maintenance routine for your new hardwood floors. Set out entry mats and doormats and remove all outdoor shoes before walking across your hardwood flooring. To protect your hardwood floors from dents or indentations that heavy furniture can leave over time, make sure to use floor protectors for optimal protection.

Every day care and maintenance

Sweep, vacuum or dry mop your hardwood flooring on a regular basis. Make sure to check with your manufacturer’s care and maintenance guide, in addition to their list of approved vacuum cleaners, before caring for your new floors.  If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer approved cleaning solution and follow their guidelines. If you find your floors need a periodical deep cleaning, always hire a local professional floor cleaning company. For recommendations, speak with one of our Kimi's Carpets Plus Flooring store representatives!

Spill and Stain Removal:

Life happens on our flooring, and the occasional spills and stains are just inevitable. Learning how to remove common household stains without damaging your flooring is important.  Most common spills like liquids or pet accidents will wipe away clean, especially on hardwood floors with stain and scuff resistant technology built directly into the hardwood finish. Wipe away liquid spills immediately, as hardwood flooring is not water resistant.  For other common stains like wax residue or nail polish, consult with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
