The Truth About Hardwood
- You need to wax it regularly. This may have been the case years ago, but modern finishes applied by professionals (like our team at FloorQuest!) has made waxing your flooring unnecessary. In fact, it might even damage your finish. Save yourself the hassle and skip the wax.
- Mopping with water is the best way to clean hardwood flooring. False! Your flooring can be damaged by water. Instead, clean with products designed to be used on hardwood flooring.
- Your high heels are fine to wear on hardwood. Actually, high heels are damaging to your flooring. Spike heels are particularly harmful to this type of flooring.
- If you see gaps in your flooring, it is damaged. This is not necessarily true. This type of flooring expands and contracts with temperature changes. In cold temperatures, the wood loses moisture and will contract somewhat. You can expect the gaps to shrink when the temperature heats up.
