The Best Vacuums for Wood Floors
Stark’s Vacuums in Portland OR – Vancouver WA – Bend OR
Wood floors are a great addition to any household, and more homeowners are choosing hardwood floors than ever. It can be difficult to know exactly how to care for your hardwood floors, and what equipment or cleaners are acceptable to use. Whether you have multi-purpose, laminate, or traditional wood floors, it’s important to consider cleaning carefully. Hard floor surfaces need brushing just as much as carpet does, but they need a specific kind of brush and vacuum.
Specialized Vacuums for Hardwood Floors
Can you use any old vacuum on hardwood floors? Maybe! But using a harsh vacuum on hard surfaces can scratch, dent, or otherwise damage the flooring surface. You can also wear out the brushes on your vacuum faster, by forcing it to work on surfaces that it wasn’t meant for. We recommend the following to maintain the longevity of your hardwood floors and vacuum:
- Use a vacuum with adjustable heights: If you have a mix of flooring types in your house, you’re going to need a vacuum that can adjust across height and material. Some of our vacuum models do this automatically!
- Use a lighter vacuum: Heavy vacuums weren’t meant to clean hardwood floors, and you can damage flooring surfaces.
- Use a vacuum made for pets and allergies: These vacuums were made to remove as much dirt and pet hair as possible. Plus, with HEPA filters, you’ll know for sure that the dirt is out of your carpet, and not re-circulating through your house!
- For superior clean, choose central vacuuming: If you have a variety of floor surfaces in your house, vacuuming is going to be more complicated. Take the effort out of vacuuming, and get a system that can work everywhere. When you use central vacuuming, you can switch out special heads and brushes for each surface you’re cleaning.
