For people with wood flooring throughout their homes, it is important to do the little things to protect it. First, if you have furniture on the floors, be sure to use felt stickers to ensure the feet of the furniture do not scratch or scuff the floors. Also, if you have specific high traffic areas in your home, think about laying area rugs or track carpets to protect them.
Wood flooring will last for decades if properly maintained. Use a good wood polish and string mop to regularly clean your hardwood floors. Sweep regularly as well to reduce accumulation of dust particles. Proper care of wood flooring is not difficult and takes less time the more often you do it.
