2. Don't drag furniture.

Dragging furniture will also cause scratches on the floor. Instead, lift them up and move them.

Extra tip

If you have pets, pay attention to their nails because they can also scratch the floor.

3. Dry accumulated water immediately.

If someone has dropped water on the floor or rainwater has entered your home, dry it off immediately. Water and wood don't mix!

Wood has the ability to retain or absorb water, the wood fiber swells and eventually cracks. In addition, problems like mold and mildew can also happen. The repair will vary depending on the size of the damage done.

4. Avoid damage caused by nature

Changes in humidity can cause a hardwood floor to expand and contract. To prevent this, use an air conditioner, humidifier or dehumidifier as needed to maintain an adequate level of humidity in the room.

Also, the sun's ultraviolet rays can change the color of the wooden floor. Use window blinds to protect the floor from ultraviolet rays and prevent fading.
