General Guidelines

  • 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.

  • Place 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.
