Rugs On New Hardwood Floors - Adding significant value to the inside or some residence or place of business, hardwood floors are fast becoming the flooring collection of choice, replacing its predecessor, the carpeted floor. Hardwood floors, finished, bare or engineered, need daily cleaning using a regular annual maintenance plan to keep the total attractiveness of any wood floor, deep rich tones and the luster.
Contrary to popular belief, occasional waxing is required by these floors, depending on traffic flow on the other side of the ground, with specialized cleaners built to seal and safeguard the floor from scratches and abuse. In the past, assumptions have signified that all the maintenance that is needed for a wood floor is light sweeping and mopping. Although, there is some truth to this theory, determined by the selection of flooring material, failure to supply adequate protection to any floor can lead to deterioration and damage of the flooring surface at an accelerated rate with potential replacement in as little as five years.
Mopping wood flooring surfaces allows water to seep in between the seams of the flooring material slowly but eventually ruining the substructure of the hardwood flooring material. Mopping a wood floor with excessive amounts of water also institutes potential form infiltration under the flooring surface, that will continue to grow undetected, an important health hazard in almost any residence.
Ultraviolet rays of the sunlight exposed to hardwood surfaces for extended durations, fade and dry out, split and cut wood flooring material at accelerated rates. Direct rays of sunlight often produce excessive temperature buildup on hardwood flooring material surfaces not obstructed with a modern state-of-the-art engineered glass of today's windows. The closure of drapes to protect wood materials contradicts the original intent of installing such flooring material, to reflect light within an otherwise dull and dark room.
