Maintaining your new floor

Stripseal Flooring MaintenanceCleaning and protecting your floors

USE MATS
Shoes carry grit and small particles that can gouge or rough sand the surface of your new floor. Place mats or runners in front of sinks in your kitchen and any doors leading to the outside where heavy traffic and tracking occurs. However, do not do this until at least two weeks after the finish has been applied. Chairs, and any other furniture that is moved frequently, should have floor glides attached to the bottom of each leg to help prevent scratching and wear. Do not wax the bottom of chair legs.

DAILY/WEEKLY DUST MOPPING OR VACUUMING

Regular dust mopping or vacuuming is an essential part of hardwood floor care. A good quality anti static dust mop or vacuum head is the most effective tool for cleaning dust and dirt off the floor. To keep your floor looking its best, dust mop or vacuum at least twice a week. Dust or vacuum more often on floors with heavy traffic. However, be careful. Vacuum cleaner heads and the wheels can leave scratches.....so opt for the mop as a preference!

REGULAR CLEANING
Spills and tracked in dirt can be cleaned by lightly damp mopping the floor with a house-hold sponge mop. Use clean water for regular sponge mopping. DO NOT over-wet the mop. Excessive water can damage the floor. In addition to cleaning with water, it may be necessary to clean with a mild parquet wood cleaner.

DO NOT USE CERTAIN PRODUCTS

Don't use cleaning products without them specifically mentioning the suitability to timber floor finishes. Chemical additives are particularly a problem. Significant damage can be done.
