Wood floors are an excellent alternative to carpeting for almost any commercial or residential space. While they do not have the same warmth and noise cancelling capabilities as carpets do, many people prefer the refined appearance of wood floors to the appearance of carpeting.
To some extent, wood flooring requires less frequent cleaning care than carpeting. Wood floors certainly do not absorb bacteria and soil as carpets do. Carpets should be vacuumed regularly and deep cleaned twice a year. When carpet is damaged by a buildup of soil, the results are usually felt in the texture and seen in a general dulling of the color. This is very different than damage to a wood floor, where every scratch and blotch can stand out like a sore thumb against the gleaming finish.
Regardless of the occupants of your home, a wood floor will inevitably be victim to damage. Whether from furniture moving, heavy items dropping or liquid spilling, no wood floor stays blemish free. You can minimize damages and scratches from dirt and grit through frequent sweeping or vacuuming.

It is better to have a professional clean and seal your wood floors than to do it yourself because wood floors can be easily damaged by moisture. Not only that, but sanding and buffing wood floors may involve the removal of the previous polyurethane coat. Any imperfections in the sanding will be magnified later by the finish, so you want the best, most even sanding job that you can find. Special attention areas might need additional or separate care, such as crack and gouge repair, or even board replacement.
