Caring for your wood floor

Regular cleaning will help protect your floor from dirt, possible damage and increase its lifespan. 

To remove dust and debris use a vacuum cleaner with a soft-headed attachment to prevent scratching. Alternatively sweep with a broom or Swiffer style attachment. We can provide liquid cleaning solutions for lacquered and oiled floors. Never soak the floor with water as this will cause the flooring to dry over time which can cause the floor to shrink and crack. Never use abrasive cleaners or steam cleaners as these will damage the floor. Place a good quality barrier matting at entrances to remove dirt and stones. Use felt pads on furniture with metal feet and remove studs which can cause scratches. If in the unfortunate event that a board is scratched, we can replace with a new board, so we recommend keeping any unused boards after installation.
