There are two basic categories of floors: factory engineered and solid. Factory engineered consists of multiple layers or veneers made up of different types of wood or composite. The veneers are layered in opposite directions to increase stability and to resist the expansion and contraction that comes with temperature and humidity fluctuations. This type is well-suited for basements and rooms with less stable environments. Depending on the thickness of the top layer, it can be sanded and refinished, but no more than two or three times.
Try to avoid moving anything heavy on the phones. Use a furniture dolly or put castors on the bottom so you can glide it across the floor. If you spill any liquids on the floor wipe it up immediately. Do not clean the floor with water or wet mops to protect it from absorbing moisture. You can use a damp mop but make sure that it is dry and does not stay wet. To prevent anyone from slipping put down some slip proof rugs.
While wood flooring is durable and capable of withstanding quite a bit of abuse, there may come a time where it is in need of being touched up due to scuffs, scratches or water damage. Depending on the extent of the damage to the floor, it may only need a refinishing or a partial replacement in some areas. However, in cases of more serious damage, the entire flooring could need to be replaced. If the floor looks damaged it is probably best to assess the extent and proceed appropriately so that specialists can repair the strips or planks.
