You are going to spill on your floor – DONT WORRY!

If you are able to, simply wiping up the spill will work.

If it continues to stain, call a hardwood flooring contractor. We can sand and stain the spot on the floor or replace that board, depending on your situation.

The best way to maintain a wood floor is by dust moping more frequently than wet moping.
The use of a robot vacuum can help pick up a lot of dust, dirt, and small rocks that get into the grain of the wood.
Vacuuming constantly reduces the amount of scratches your floor has
