Making a rustic interior or coming up with an eclectic one may require you to use wood. You can incorporate earthly and wooden elements into the pillars and ceilings. But if you want the design to be obvious, the floor is your blank canvas.
Having a wooden floor makes your home quite luxe and warm. The only dilemma of having wooden floor is the way you should take care of it. But taking care of it should not be an issue though. There will always be ways to make it much more beautiful as it ages.
Here are some pointers to help you take care of wooden floor and steps in NZ.
Little moisture as much as possible
You may be tempted to use water when cleaning your floor, but do not. As much as possible, you should keep your floor away from moisture. Otherwise, it may seep into the underside and cause rotting. On the surface, the floor runs the risk of looking dull. A dampened cloth will do; do not use abrasive cleaners and detergents.
Trim your pet’s nails
Your pooch or kitties may look innocent, but their playfulness can be a contributing factor to your floor’s damage. Their nails may cause scratches in some places, some of which may be difficult to hide or remove. So if you can, trim their nails or better yet, have a pet groomer do it for you.
Use rugs and shock absorbers
A Persian rug is a must-have if you want to have improve your floor’s aesthetics and protect it at the same time. The legs of your furniture should be covered with a shock-absorbing item to prevent abrasion when you slide them or transfer them to another spot.
These are only some of the things to keep in mind if you want to make your wooden floor last longer. Consult a specialist to improve the way you take care of it.
