How to Keep Hardwood Floors from Fading

How to Keep Hardwood Floors from Fading


Hardwood floors are a beautiful and timeless addition to any home. However, they can be susceptible to fading over time, especially from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays.

Here are some tips on how to keep your hardwood floors from fading:

  • Minimize sunlight exposure. The best way to prevent hardwood floors from fading is to minimize their exposure to sunlight. If possible, keep your hardwood floors out of direct sunlight. If this is not possible, you can try to shade the windows with curtains or blinds.

  • Use a UV-resistant finish. A good quality UV-resistant finish will help to block out some of the UV rays and protect your floors from damage. When choosing a finish, look for one that has an SPF of at least 30.

  • Refinish your floors regularly. As the finish on your floors wears off, it will become less effective at protecting them from UV damage. Refinishing your floors every few years will help to keep them looking their best and protect them from damage.

  • Avoid using harsh chemicals. Harsh chemicals, such as bleach, can damage the finish on your hardwood floors and make them more susceptible to fading. When cleaning your floors, use a mild soap and water solution.

  • Move furniture around regularly. Furniture can block sunlight from reaching the floor, which can help to prevent fading. Every few months, move furniture around to different areas of the room.

  • Keep your floors clean. Dirt and dust can build up on your floors and make them more susceptible to fading. Vacuum your floors regularly and wipe them down with a damp cloth.

By following these tips, you can help to keep your hardwood floors from fading and keep them looking their best for years to come.
