Installing hardwood and laminate floors has become a popular trend , but without proper maintenance, it will lose the shine it once had. It does not require an intense maintenance process, but more general cleaning and be careful not to scratch the floors. Just make sure that there is no fine dirt, gravel and soil on the floor as that can scratch the floors. We have some extra tips to share with you about maintenance tips and tricks:

- Avoid using water: Water ruins the veneer finish of the flooring. You can dampen a cloth to wipe away the spills or any leftovers on the floors, but mopping it with water will definitely damage your hardwood floors permanently.
