Preventive and Regular Maintenance 

Here are a few requirements that will help you enjoy a great-looking floor longer. 

1.   Regularly sweep or vacuum the floor to prevent sand or abrasive dust from accumulating and scratching the finish. 

2.   Sand and water are wood’s worst enemies. Place rugs inside every outside entrance of the house, in front of the kitchen sink, kitchen working stations and the dishwasher to protect the floor from water or oily detergents. 

3.   Use adequate floor protection (felt pads) under all furniture and chair legs, in order to ease their movements and to prevent scratches. 

4.   To prevent excessive movement of the floor boards, maintain the relative humidity level in your home at between 40% and 50% throughout the year. Hardwood is a living material which reacts to changes of relative humidity. During the humid seasons, moisture is absorbed by the wood which then expands. During the dry seasons, on the other hand, the wood releases its humidity and contracts or shrinks. 

5.   High heels are one of the worst enemies to hardwood floors.  Keep high heel shoes in good condition.  Damaged or worn high heels may expose a metal tip which will certainly damage the surface finish. 

6.   Protect your floor against direct sunlight or any intense source of artificial lighting.  Over time, intense light will discolor exposed surfaces.  This phenomenon with wood surfaces is normal and natural. 

7.   Never use wax, oil-based detergent or any other household cleaners on our Prefinished floors.  These may dull or damage the finish, leaving a greasy film and making the floor slippery and more difficult to clean.
