WHAT NEVER TO DO

To help to keep your floor looking as good as new here are some useful tips and advice:

  • Mats should be placed or fitted at any doors that lead outside. This is to stop any unwanted dirt, or grit or moisture getting onto the floor so ideally place one inside and one outside of the door.
  • If you need to move an object, lift it up. Do not drag or push it across the floor.Felt pads should be used to protect the floor from furniture and furniture legs. Castor cups should be used to prevent castor damage from sofas etc.
  • Avoid High Heels or shoes with studs on sole.
  • Do not tip water over the floor e.g. bucket of water. Any spills should be wiped up immediately.
  • Anything which is placed on the floor which holds liquid should be placed on a good absorbent mat so as to soak up any moisture. It is inadvisable to place plant pots on your floor without catch trays.

LOOKING AFTER YOUR FLOORS

To ensure your floors remain in tip top contain you must ensure avoid doing any of the below. If you have any queries, please get in touch and a technical member of staff can discuss with you.

  • Polish, varnish or wax your floor without consulting your installer
  • Place hot or burning objects on the floor as they may scorch or blister the surface of the floor

CARING FOR YOUR FLOOR TYPE

NATURAL WOOD FLOORS

Natural wood will incur scratches after time due to it being a natural product.

  • Cleaning your wood floor daily will prevent any build up of unwanted dirt or grit.
  • To remove any dust or dirt which has accumulated, it is best to vacuum, sweep or dry mop the floor. It is advised that if using a vacuum cleaner ensure the brush bar is off, as this could cause scratching, or use the flat upholstered attachment.

It is recommended that that you mist dry mop your solid wood flooring weekly with a non abrasive cleaner (a cap full of fairy liquid in a bucket) and moist mop then ensure the floor does not get too wet. Remember to soak up any residual water as all floors are liable to be slippery if wet. They will deteriorate rapidly if residual water is allowed to be sluiced over your floor.

Laminate Flooring is very easy to look after.

With only a little liquid detergent or a spray of Bona Laminate Wood Floor Cleaner, all surface spills, black marks with be easily removed without leaving any smears.

The surface of our oiled floors has been treated with a special oil mixture, which is based on natural vegetable oils. This does not contain formaldehyde nor does it release any harmful substances into the room. In order to preserve your oiled floor treat it carefully following the instructions below.

Keep your oiled floors perfect

For the care of our oiled floors there are three conditioners, produced by OsmoColor. These products are safe and secure, if they are used correctly.

  • Wash and Care floor cleaner for regular use on wooden floors (based on coconut oils and vegetable soaps).
  • Liquid Wax cleaner for cleaning and maintenance (not water-soluble) when needed.
  • Hardwax-Oil Reconditioner for complete or partial renovation of wooden floors (based on vegetable oils and waxes, not water-soluble, minimal solvent content). The Hardwax-Oil penetrates deep into the wood and improves its resistance to dirt.
