All the wood surfaces in your home—from kitchen cabinets and hardwood floors to banisters and furniture—require ongoing maintenance and special care. 

This may seem like a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be when you know the right methods and how to establish a consistent routine. 


Cleaning Wood Surfaces Daily 

Use a soft, microfiber cloth to dust furniture and kitchen cabinets, or a microfiber mop to clean hardwood floors. 


Cleaning Wood Surfaces Weekly 

Mop hardwood floors weekly and use a wet cloth to wipe down cabinets and furniture. Don’t use too much moisture because it can damage the wood. Lightly misting with a small amount of wood cleaner will do the trick!


Cleaning Wood Surfaces Monthly 

At least every couple of months, polish your wood surfaces. This will renew their protective finish and smooth light scratches.


Cleaning Wood Surfaces Annually 

Each year, deep clean your wood surfaces to replace their protective finish and repair any significant damage. Also, keep in mind that refurbishing kitchen cabinets and staining kitchen cabinets should be done about every three years.

This will keep your kitchen cabinets looking their best and even help them last longer! Refinishing your cabinets every three years is much cheaper than replacing completely worn down cabinets sooner than you ever thought you’d have to.


Advanced Tips For Wood Surfaces

The tips above should help you develop a well-rounded wood cleaning schedule and show how easy it is! Also, be sure to use the proper tools like microfiber mops and towels.

Avoid vinegar, steam cleaners, or waxy, soapy solutions because these can dull your wood surfaces. Additionally, it’s a good idea to consider protecting your wood floors by placing rugs in high traffic areas.
