Vinyl flooring, hardwood flooring, engineered hardwood flooring—any kind of flooring is an investment, that’s for sure. We aren’t just talking monetarily; we’re also referring to how it’s an investment in your living space’s aesthetic, in your pride as a homeowner, and in the continued comfort of your wonderful abode. Quite a worthwhile investment indeed!


It’s only natural, then, to want to make that investment last. It’s common to be antsy or anxious about the longevity of your flooring, given the financial costs and current financial climate. Rest assured, though, that by putting your money toward quality brands from E Hardwoods & Flooring, you’re bound to have bought a flooring built to last, regardless of what it’s made out of. That being said, there are quite a few simple day-to-day maintenance tasks that, when kept up with, can prolong your flooring’s serviceable years. Read on to learn more.

Flooring Care Tips from a Prefinished Hardwood Flooring Company

First and foremost: every flooring type has individual needs and maintenance requirements that need to be attended to in order for that flooring to last. For example, solid hardwood flooring requires refinishing to keep looking and performing at its best, while you’d be silly to try such a procedure with vinyl flooring. It’s important for you to learn all you can about maintenance for your personal flooring type. Are you unsure of where to start? Check out our blog, which covers everything from prefinished hardwood flooring to solid hardwood flooring.


All flooring, though, appreciates the following when it comes to longevity-promoting care:


  • Regular sweeping |Or vacuuming, whatever floats your boat. Fine particles of debris can be ground into your flooring as you and your family walk atop of it, degrading its finish over time. It takes five minutes to perform daily cleaning, so don’t shirk it!
  • Prompt cleanup of spills | Yes, your waterproof flooring is, well, waterproof, but that doesn’t mean you should let stain-promoting liquids sit there! Even if you don’t make much of a fuss over it, your flooring, regardless of what it is made out of, appreciates your prompt care.
  • Not having to deal with your wearing shoes | There’s a reason why so many households have a no-shoes-in-the-house policy. Your shoes can track in the aforementioned small degree particles even if you’re fastidious about your feet, so leave any footwear at the front door.
