Luxury doesn’t necessarily translate to high maintenance and hardwood floors are a perfect example of that. They give your home a lot of elegance but are very low maintenance. You do need to be mindful of the seasons; for example, winter brings snow, ice, and salt while spring can bring wetness and dirt. That means your cleaning routines may have to change up a bit, but you should always sweep or dust every day. Dust forms everywhere and can embed between the boards and wreak havoc. Here are some tips from Genoa Custom Interiors, your source for hardwood floors

Water is the enemy of solid wood floors and it can create cupping, crowning, and warping. Engineered wood flooring fares better and is less prone to warping, but no floor should ever be submerged in water or experience little puddles of liquid, such as when the ice melts. Whether you have solid or engineered wood, wipe spills immediately, and place foot mats strategically at entrances so people don’t drag in moisture, dirt, salt, and leaves.
