Hardwood Care

Wood and Water don't mix. Any liquid spills must be removed and the surface left clean and dry. Liquid will cause wood to swell over a period of time no matter what the finish may be. Never use water to clean or mop a wood floor. The use of products such as Oil Soap or Mop and Glo will damage the flooring and void the manufacturer's warrantee. Use only the factory recommended care products.

Keep the humidity in your home between 35% and 45% year round. An air conditioner in the summer will remove humidity and a humidifier in the winter will prevent the floor from becoming too dry.

Avoid sharp objects. Although the flooring is sealed and covered with a tough surface, it can be damaged. Spike heels create a great amount of pressure per square inch and can cause damage. Glides under all chair and table legs as well as under any furniture is a must.

Tracking in dirt will eventually abrade the surface of any wood floor. The surface will become dull in traffic areas if not kept clean. The use of entry rugs will help greatly to remove grit from shoes.

Each manufacturer of Hardwood Flooring has recommendations on how to take care of their particular product. Those recommendations should be followed. This will usually require the use of the manufactures special maintenance products and is a small price to pay for the longevity of your Hardwood Floor.
