How can I keep my hardwood floors from getting scuffed?

Maintaining Healthy Exotic Hardwood Floors

Besides regular cleaning and care of your exotic hardwood floors, there are a few other tips to keep your floors looking beautiful.

  1. Become a barefoot family. Or at least sock-wearing. Implement a "no shoes" policy in the house, or at least in the rooms where you have hardwood flooring.
  2. Place plastic or foam pads under the feet of your furniture to prevent denting the wood.
  3. Keep a humidifier running during winter to reduce wood shrinkage.
  4. Use area rugs in high traffic spots of the room to avoid scratching and general wear-and-tear.
