Hard wood floors create a beautiful, rich finish. Their maintenance requires attention and prevention.
In order to preserve the natural beauty of the wood, never wash the floors with water or use a soap, detergent, oil-based soap or any other cleaning product destined for other surfaces.
FlorDeco recommends that you use Saniten's eco-friendly N200. This no-rinse, non-residue product is available in spray and concentrated formulas. You can purchase it at FlorDeco retailers.
Protect wood with a rug, especially in entry ways, this will prevent dirt and humidity from coming into the room. Do not use rubber or plastic mats, or those with a foam backing that can discolour the floor. Opt for an approved non-slip pad that you can install under the rug.
Sponge up all spills immediately. If a liquid has dried, clean using a cloth or a scouring pad dampened with a cleaning agent recommended by the manufacturer.
Slide a blanket or rug (turned over) under your furniture before carefully moving it around the room. Install felt pads under your furniture legs to protect your floor from scratches.
Flooring with a polyurethane finish can not be waxed. To revive the floor's shine apply a coat of polyurethane varnish. Look for a good quality product to ensure that wood does not yellow.
Avoid walking on hard wood floors in high heels. These can quickly mark and damage your floors.
