Hardwood Flooring Maintenance

It's easy to keep our floors looking beautiful.

Cleaning Your Floor

Columbia Flooring hardwood floors are easy to maintain and require no waxing. Regular care will keep your floor looking its best for years to come.

  • Vacuum or sweep to remove dirt and grime that could scratch the floor. We recommend you avoid using the vacuum's beater bar.
  • Wipe the floor clean using a microfiber mop and Performance Accessories™ Hard Surface Cleaner, available from your hardwood flooring retailer.
  • Avoid damp-mopping your floor, and refrain from using soaps, wax, liquid detergent or other household cleaning products on your hardwood floor.
  • Avoid steam cleaners and floor scrubbing machines.

Preventing Damage

Follow these simple steps to help prevent damage to your Columbia Flooring hardwood floor:

  • Use exterior and interior walk off mats at all exterior entrances. Walk off mats should be routinely maintained to avoid becoming a soil source.
  • Sweep or vacuum regularly to prevent build-up of damaging dirt and grit.
  • Promptly remove spills using hardwood floor cleaner and a clean cloth.
  • Use felt protectors under chairs and heavy pieces of furniture.
  • Use a dolly and protective plywood sheets when moving furniture or appliances.
  • Remove shoes with damaged or spiked heels before walking on your floor.
  • Keep pets' nails trimmed and paws clean.
  • Close drapes or blinds during hours of direct sunlight to avoid discoloration.
