Proper maintenance is essential to keep wood floors looking beautiful and performing well for the lifetime of the floor. To keep wood floors looking and performing well for generations, follow these simple guidelines:
- Schedule a weekly routine cleaning that involves sweeping, dust mopping, or vacuuming (using the bare floor setting) to remove dust and dirt.
- Clean spills immediately with a dry or slightly damp cloth.
- Use a cleaner made specifically for wood floors, like Wood Wizard.
Wood Wizard is a concentrated mopping solution with a quick evaporation formula.
Chemical cleaners that sit on wood floors too long, damage them and decrease the floors lifespan. Wood Wizard not only evaporates quickly, it deep cleans and renews wood finishes.

With so many deicers available its hard to know which one to buy, Here is a quick guide:
• Sodium Chloride:
Rock Salt is the cheapest ice melting option. Prices can be as low as $3 per bag (50 lbs) depending on supply. However, you get what you pay for. Rock Salt will only melt snow and ice effectively at temperatures down to +16 degrees, but performs best in the mid-20s. Rock Salt (sodium chloride) is highly corrosive and will damage asphalt, concrete, metal, lawn and most other surfaces over time. Bottom line: short term savings, long-term costs.
• Magnesium Chloride:
A premium/high performance ice melt due to its effectiveness. It’s gentle on surfaces and vegetation. It is also pet safe and it doesn’t track as much as other deicers. It has a low environmental impact. It will melt snow and ice effectively down to -20F.
• Calcium Chloride:
Calcium chloride is more expensive than both sodium and magnesium chlorides. It will melt ice to -25F. It is more corrosive than Magnesium but less corrosive then Rock Salt. It does track but will get the job done.
• Liquid De-Icers:
Ammonium sulfate, glycols, urea and formates are the most common on the market. Ideal for handicap ramps, entrance-ways, parking lots and steps. No ‘tracking” of salt or other compounds and most will melt to -25F.
We’ve found the most effective ice melt plan includes both liquid and pellet ice melts. Experts advise to stay away from rock salt. A combination of Magnesium and a premium liquid ice melt for entrance ways is gaining popularity.
