A clean and polished hardwood floor is a great look for your home – you need to remember that, especially since the appearance of your home is very important for aesthetic value. We’re going to show you how you can ensure that you keep up that luxurious look and feel at your home. We’ll show you how you prep and polish your hardwood floor for the best results.

  • Carefully clear the room of all furniture and other belongings. Use furniture pads to help stop them from scratching and gouging your floor.
  • Make sure that you clean your floor by dusting and mopping it, then let it dry completely before you begin the polishing process.
  • Ensure that you have all the tools you need to do your polishing and that includes an applicator pad or a high- density foam roller.
  • Now, you’ll need to apply the polish and do so in small sections and ensure that while doing that, you need to keep your applicator pad or roller wet. Smooth the polish along the grain of wood.
  • With a feathering technique, try to keep your floor’s polish looking even. That way, you’ll have smooth transitions when you move to each section.
  • Try not to paint yourself into a corner – think about that before you begin the process. You need to know how you are going to polish the floors.
  • Now, you need to let your floor dry for at least an hour before you allow light traffic on it. Let it dry for at least 24 hours before you allow heavier traffic on it. You should polish your hardwood floor every few months for the best results.
