Cleaning Tips for Your Sydney Timber Flooring

For those in Sydney with timber flooring, there are some things that you should keep in mind when you clean your floors. You want to maintain the beauty and elegance of your hardwood for as long as possible. AJ Flooring understands. We have served the Sydney area for over 30 years installing, repairing, and maintaining timber floors for thousands of satisfied customers. Based on our years of experience, here are a few tips for homeowners with timber flooring.

Sweep your floors every day. Dirt will accumulate each and every day and is the worst enemy of your floor. Unlike carpet, dirt, dust mites, and other particles are not trapped in the wood. Use a broom or dust mop to capture most of the larger particles. Be careful not to scratch the floor. You can use a vacuum as long as it has a bare floor setting. Again, you do not want to do anything that will scratch your hardwood.

Mop your Sydney timber flooring once a week. When you mop, do not use detergent to clean your floor. It can be abrasive and scratch the floor. Make sure that most of the water has been squeezed from the mop head. You never want to pool water on your timber floors as this can damage and discolour them.

AJ Flooring offers customers Gemini maintenance kits that can be used to help maintain hardwood floors. We also suggest that you use felt padding underneath your furniture to prevent scratching and wearing of your timber floor finish.
