Caring For Your Wooden Floor
Gravel, grit & dirt brought in on shoes is the biggest single problem and the provision of a barrier mat is will extend the life of the floor considerably.
Use a vacuum cleaner regularly to remove loose material. Water soluble dirt can be removed using a sponge, mop or cloth. The floor can be wiped over occasionally with a few drops of detergent or soap powder but never use ammonia. Never mop with excess water, the film of water left should be dry within a minute.
Ensure that in the areas where the wood is installed the rooms are well ventilated and and that you maintain a relative humidity of approximately 50 percent to prevent distortion of the boards.
Furniture legs should be fitted with felt pads to avoid unnecessary marks and scratches on the floor.
Specific stains should be removed as soon as possible.
