Congratulations! You’re the lucky owner of a reclaimed wood floor. We’ll give you the good news first: Reclaimed hardwood floors will last for hundreds of years. The bad news: You’re probably the one who has to keep them clean. Luckily, maintaining a reclaimed wood floor is no different from cleaning a new wood floor. Knowing how to clean your wood floors can be broken down into two important steps: preventing initial wear and damage to your floor and cleaning the finish.
189 Winnisimmet Street once housed the Post Office and Odd Fellows Home in Chelsea, Massachusetts. Built in 1906, it was one of the few buildings in the area to survive the great Chelsea Fire of 1908, which burned 350 acres and left 15,000 people homeless. Today, 189 Winnisimmet is home to the Chelsea Theater Works and the Apollinaire Theatre Company, a year-round, award-winning professional theater. On the first floor of the building are the newly opened BlackBox and Children’s Theaters.
