Should You Mop Your Hardwood Floor?

Cleaning your hardwood floor is a fairly simple matter. You should sweep it from time to time to remove any loose dust and dirt. As long as you have a strong finish on the wood, it should be fine. However, you might want to clean it more deeply occasionally. On tile and stone floors, that usually means mopping with hot, soapy water. However, water is the enemy of a hardwood floor. So, should you mop your hardwood floor or do something else?

Why is White Washing Becoming Popular Again?

If you remember your high school English class, you remember reading about Tom Sawyer tricking the other kids into whitewashing the fence for him. It’s a famous scene, and the term “whitewash” has come to mean many things. However, it also still refers to the original practice of whitewashing wood. It is an old practice that was popular in the 19th century, especially across the northeast and midwest. You may see it from time to time here in Sacramento. It went out of favor for many reasons; largely, whitewashing was replaced by newer practices that were said to be more attractive. As with many 19th century traditions, it is popular again. Whitewashing wood floors is experiencing a serious resurgence. Read More Why is White Washing Becoming Popular Again?

3 Things to Consider When Refinishing Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors are great; they’re durable, attractive, and long-lasting. However, they are going to get damaged over time. Children tracking in dirt, pet claws, moving furniture, and just daily life will wear them down over time. If they become bad enough, you might think you need to refinish them. A refinish involves sanding off the top coat and reapplying it. The floor is likely made of wood with a coat of clear polyurethane. The team that you hire to refinish the floor will sand away the old coat and sand the wood to smooth out all of the scratches. Then, they’ll apply a coat of polyurethane. Here are five things to consider when you make that call.

Do I Need to Wax My Harwood Floor?

Hardwood floors don’t require very much maintenance. With some sweeping or vacuuming, they can look great and perform great for years. However, from time to time, you’ll need to do a little more upkeep. Over time, the floor can start to look dull, cloudy, and dented. Floors look cloudy because of hundreds of tiny scratches. Sliding furniture, pet claws, and hard-soled shoes can scratch the finish. That will eventually make the floor look faded. Floors can look dull if the finish coat on them starts to wear away. Dents arise from heavy furniture, hard shoes, and pet claws as well. 

If you have a hardwood floor, you’ve likely seen hardwood flooring wax and considered if you need it. Hardwood wax is not for all kinds of floors, though.
