Best way to clean hardwood floors

Hardwood floors are a popular item at our Indianapolis showroom. Homeowners looking to add hardwood flooring to their home are looking at an investment that will last decades when properly maintained. So just how do you take care of hardwood floors? Here are some tips from our partner HGTV:

Best ways to clean hardwood floors



1. Do not use harsh cleaning products or a wet mop. Instead, try boiling water and two teabags. The tannic acid in tea creates a beautiful shine for hardwood floors. Let two teabags steep in a cup or two of boiling water for a few minutes. Pour the tea into a bucket. Take a soft cloth and wring it out in the tea - the cloth should not be dripping wet, just damp - and use the cloth to wipe the floor clean.

2. Have scratches in your hardwood floor? Try this trick: take a crayon the color of the floor and rub it on the scratch to fill the gap. Turn a blow dryer on high, heat the area where the crayon was applied and buff it with a soft cloth.
