Maintainence / Cleaning Advice

  • No maintenance or cleaning products should be applied until 2 weeks after the wood floor has been lacquered. Do not use water to clean wood floors, always use a recommended cleaner.
  • Never use vinyl or tile floor care products on wood floors, they can cause the floor to become slippery and appear dull.
  • Place mats and throw rugs at doorway exteriors and interiors to help prevent the tracking of grit and dirt on your wood flooring.
  • Never wet-mop a wood floor. Standing water can stain or damage the wood.
  • Wipe up food and other spills immediately with a slightly dampened towel.

Preventative Measures

  • NPlace soft plastic or fabric faced glides under the legs of furniture to prevent scratching of your wood floor.
  • When moving heavy furniture, completely pick it up rather than sliding it across the floor to best protect your wood flooring.
  • Try not to let people walk on the wood floor with stiletto-healed shoes as these can cause damage.
  • In the kitchen place a rug in front of the sink area.
  • Use a humidifier in the winter months to keep the movement of wood to a minimum.
  • Dust mop, sweep or vacuum your wood floor regularly. Clean with manufacturers recommended cleaner.
  • Recoat the wood floor when cleaning no longer restores shine. The frequency of this will depend on the amount of traffic.
