Wooden flooring is a very popular alternative to tile and carpets. Wooden floors look really beautiful and they are easy to take care of. However, you need to understand that maintaining your wooden floor properly is very important.

While installing your wooden flooring, make sure that you hire a reputed installer. The installer will give you instructions on how to take care of your flooring. Use a water-based PH neutral cleaner to clean your flooring once a week. Add distilled water to the water based solution in order to avoid the hard water streaks on the wood flooring. To prevent squeaks in the wood flooring, you can use talcum powder.

Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt from the wooden flooring before cleaning it with the cleaner. If your wood floor does not have polyurethane finish you can wax it once every three to four months. Try to keep grit off the wooden flooring.
