Do not use hard casters on any furniture directly on your hardwood floor. Casters can cause isolated wear areas
on your floor and increase the frequency of recoat and refinish projects.
Do not use steam mops on your hardwood floor. The use of water in all its forms, including steam, on wood floor
should be limited to the degree possible. The high heat from some steam mops can also serve to thermally break
down your floor’s protective layer over time.
Do not pour cleaning product directly on floor. It may be tempting to create a puddle of cleaner and spread it
out over your floor but this approach can have the same effect as using too much water when cleaning. Cleaning
products that are applied too liberally in spots can absorb into wood, cause swelling and an uneven look over time.
