Are light white oak wire brushed floors hard to keep clean?

We too want to lighten up our main living areas (open great room) by putting in lighter hardwood. Everything seems wire-brushed right now. I see those grooves and just wonder how much dirt is going to be stuck in them. We are looking at a light-stained white oak. Would love to hear other people's experience of wire brushing and light floors. (Picture just as a sample of what we are looking at). (Note: our space is only about 650 sq ft, with kitchen, DR, LR open to each other. We have 8 ft ceilings aimed west, and overhang over south facing sliders, so the room is not that light. In fact, it looks dark in the am when you want it to be light). Thus, the desire for light floors.
