Regardless of whether you have pets, all hardwood floors requires regular maintenance so as to maintain its attractiveness and to prolong its life. Regular sweeping and vacuuming can help keep it clear and minimize harm from sand and dirt that may be tracked into your home, which will have the exact same effect as sandpaper as time passes.
With pets, the further obstacle of dealing with shedding will also need frequent pruning and sweeping in order to keep up with the hairy mess. A useful suggestion is to consider your pet’s fur colour when deciding on the colour of your hardwood floors. Darker hair will not be as noticeable on a darker flooring, while lighter hair will blend better to a lighter color wood flooring.
