Do not refuse delivery of damaged material. Accept the damaged material, note it on the driver’s paperwork as described above, and save the material.

Keep your rich hardwoods strong and looking new with some simple routine care and these tips from Flooring Liquidators’ hardwood maintenance guide.
Keep hardwood floors free of dirt and dust with routine sweeping with a soft broom or dust mop, and vacuuming with a soft floor attachment. Both practices will eliminate grit and dirt that can leave tiny scratches and do damage over time.
One of the foremost rules of hardwood – maintain a constant humidity. Too much moisture can cause wood planks to swell, and too little can cause cracking and gaps between them. Depending on your climate and what time of year it is, you may need to use a humidifier or dehumidifier.
Clean spills promptly
Periodically clean your floors using a recommended cleaning product – never wet mop or soak wood for routine cleaning or accidental spills. At most, use a damp cloth.
Liquid spills should be cleaned as soon as possible after they happen, as any moisture that soaks into your hardwoods can cause damage. You can use a wet vac, approved floor cleaning products, dehumidifier, and ventilation to mitigate a spill.
Protect your hardwood floors!
There are many ways to protect hardwoods. One easy solution is the use of area throw rugs, which can protect floors from scratching and water damage. These are particularly useful near entryways, hallways and in front of sinks. Not only that, but the right rug can add style and color to a room.
Any furniture in a room with hardwood floors should be equipped with felt furniture pads under the legs, which protect from dents and scratches when furniture is moved or jostled. When moving furniture or other heavy objects, always lift rather than dragging!
You and your guests should leave shoes at the door, especially cleats and high heels. Sharp points can dent and scratch hardwood upon impact, and even rubber soles can leave scuffs.
