Hardwood Care

Protect the natural beauty of your hardwood floors and they’ll continue to look new for years
to come.

For cleaning, make sure you DO…

  • use a damp cloth to blot spills and spots as soon as they happen; for tough spots, such as oil, paint, markers, lipstick, ink, tar or cigarette marks, use acetone/nail polish remover on a clean white cloth, then wipe with a damp cloth; always avoid allowing liquids to stand on your floor
  • sweep, dust or vacuum the floor regularly with the hard floor attachment (not the beater bar) to prevent accumulation of dirt or grit that can scratch or dull the floor finish
  • occasionally wipe the floor with a damp mop or cloth
  • periodically clean the floor with a specialized line of floor covering care products

For cleaning, make sure you DON’T…

  • do not use oil based, wax, polish, or strong ammoniated or abrasive cleaners
  • do not use steel wool or scouring powder
  • do not wash or wet-mop the floor with soap, water, oil-soap detergent or any other liquid cleaning material. This could cause swelling, warping, delamination, and joint-line separation, and void the warranty
  • do not use any type of buffing machine

For protecting your hardwood floor…

  • use protective mats
  • use floor protectors on furniture
  • maintain relative humidity level
  • avoid sharp objects
  • don’t walk on your flooring with spikey shoes; they may cause indentations in your flooring
  • keep your pet’s nails trimmed to keep from scratching your flooring
  • periodically rearranging your area rugs and furniture will allow the flooring to age evenly
  • use a dolly when moving heavy furniture or appliances
