To extend the life of your timber flooring, regular maintenance is essential.
The following steps will maintain the timber flooring at its best.
Preventing dirt entering by placing mats at all external entries. These mats should be cleaned regularly.
Use an electrostatic mop to remove loose dirt and dust daily or on a regular basis. Loose grit can damage a timber floor quickly when trodden into the surface.
Wipe all spills immediately. Use a damp mop to clean the floor.
It is important not to over wet the floor when mopping or cleaning as this could change the moisture balance and cause the floor to expand resulting in some of the timber cupping.
Steam mops are not recommended for cleaning timber flooring as the moisture from the steam could result in cupping of the timber and the heat could damage the finish of the floor.
Floor cleaners suitable for timber floors should only be used to protect the finish.
