Like any other flooring, hardwood is also prone to get damaged if not cared properly. 

 Today, we will discuss how you can take care of your Timber or hardwood flooring. 

 If you have done Timber floor repairs in Melbourne just recently, you need to pay special attention to what’s going on with your Timber floor. 

So let’s get started! 

  1. Keep the moisture away

Moisture is the biggest reason behind Timber floor destruction. if you want your wooden flooring to be durable, place a rubber mat on the floor so that it can soak or prevent your phone from getting damaged by water coming from the refrigerator, think, dishwasher, or any other sources. If your roof is leaking, you should immediately go for repair because it can’t harm your floor on a bigger level. 

Putting carpet on your front entry and back entry is always helpful to keep the moisture away. 

Also, you should sweep the spilled water as quickly as possible. 

  1. Regular vacuum cleaning

Let’s admit it “not everyone vacuums their floor every day.”  We are so stuck in our work that we hardly get any time to clean the floor, especially on working days. But, this routine is slowly ruining the texture, quality, and durability of your floor.  Dirt and dust are slowly building up on your floor and making it look dull and old. To avoid such situations, you should regularly vacuum your floor. It will not only take away all the debris but will also ensure that the floor is not covered with bacteria or other germs. 

  1. Fill the gap with crayons

Who says crayons are just for kids? Not everybody knows that floor gaps, especially the timber ones, can be filled with crayons. All you need to do is scratch some crayon on the floor, turn on the blow dryer, and wait till it melts. As the crayon starts melting, it will fill the gap automatically. After this, dab the area with a clean cloth so that the crayon fits perfectly into the gap. 

  1. Cleaning Products

You might get turns and thousands of products for cleaning hardboard out there in the market. However, consulting Commercial Floor Sanding Company in Melbourne is a great idea. Instead of using any random cleaning product or DIY method, it’s preferable to ask the professionals for a specific product that can not only clean your floor but also revive its texture. 

  1. Go for floor coating

Coating the new Timber floor does not only add Shine to it but also protects it from stains, scratches, and other damages. Many professionals provide a waterproof coating that prevents water from getting deep inside the floor material and damage it. You can choose any type of coating mat or glossy or anything that your service provider offers.
