Floor Care and Maintenance Tips

  1. Vacuum your floors weekly! The grit and particles in dust acts as sandpaper under your feet and slowly wears down your floor’s finish, especially hardwood floors. It’s also important to avoid using vacuums with rotating brushes or a beater bar since they can scratch your floors.

    Don’t have the time or resources to keep up with the weekly maintenance of your floors? Here at FloorGem Services, Inc we offer floor care services for both commercial and residential properties.

  2. Wipe up spills, especially liquids, immediately.

  3. Trim your pet’s nails to prevent scratches on your floors.

  4. Add floor protectors to your furniture legs to prevent any unwanted scratches. It is also helpful to lift any furniture when moving and rearranging them versus pushing or dragging pieces around.

  5. Wax your floors, but only with the right products! It’s important that you never use wax with shellac, varnish, or polyurethane, especially on hardwood floors. If you choose to add a finisher make sure to test a small area first to ensure that it won’t cause the finish to peel.
