Cleaning Wood Floors, Hardwood Floors and Solid Wood Floor Maintenance and Advice


General Tips about maintaing the hardwood floor's value

  • It is very important to maintan a level of humidity in the location of the floor we advise this to be 50-65% relative humidity, its the ideal for solid wood flooring and helps to prevent damage.
  • Avoid sand and dirt as both act like sandpaper. 
  • Immediately wipe up liquids resting on the floor. 
  • Only wipe with a lightly damp cloth. 
  • Do not use any abrasives, floor wax, steam cleaners or polishes on the solid wood floor. Among other things they tarnish the floor's appearance. 
  • Fit chairs and tables with soft felt pads, office chairs with soft rollers. 
  • Use appropriate soil mats in heavily used areas.
