hardwood floors you know that cleaning them can be a chore. Especially if you haven't cleaned them in quite a while. After a while the hardwood floor can begin to show paths through it just like your carpet can. Commonly known as the high traffic area of your room.
Then again you could be one of those who have a formal living room that hardly ever gets used and it has beautiful hardwood flooring in it. I call these kinds of rooms "museums". They're there for looks mostly. Hardly ever used except maybe at the holidays or some special occasion when the family gets together.
Then when you do use it you usually have everybody take off their shoes before entering in the room. So it doesn't get scuffed up with shoe marks and so on. So therefore you would need only to clean those hardwood floors every couple years or so. But what a shame to have beautiful flooring like that and never use it.
