2. Don’t use rubber or foam-backed mats, as they may discolor floor.

3. Sweep or vacuum as often as required to remove lose dirt or grit before it can scratch the surface of the floor.

4. Wipe up liquid spills promptly with a dry cloth or paper towel. Remove sticky residue with a damp, but not dripping cloth.

5. Area rugs should be moved occasionally, as they block sunlight, which may give the appearance of discoloring under the rug.

6. Use floor protectors on the feet of furniture to avoid scratches.

7. Certain types of casters on furniture may damage the hardwood floor.

8. Do not let humidity level fall below or higher than that which is recommended by the National Wood Floor Association.
