Note: All timber floors contain a percentage of waxes and oils. These may be present naturally in the timber as oily resins, or wax can be present in treatments given to the surface as part of the regular maintenance. These waxes can penetrate the timber to below the re-sand level, causing a lack of adhesion between subsequent top-coats; in extreme cases, peeling can occur.

CARE & CLEANING

A lustrous polished wooden floor won't stay that way for long unless it is looked after. Maintaining that luster is less troublesome than the ongoing cleaning and maintenance of carpets and most other floor coverings. Your hardwood floor does cope with high traffic usage, does not wear unevenly and is cheap to maintain. If can be re-polished if damaged and requires minimal maintenance if looked after.


Maintenance

Dirt and grit is a timber floor's worst enemy! It doesn't just hide the gleam of polished floorboards; its abrasiveness actually harms floorboards too. Use dirt-trapping mats at each entrance to help prevent sand, dust and grit from being trodden getting inside. Small rugs, or carpet squares just inside the door can also help to remove extra dirt from shoes. Dust daily, if possible, with an electrostatic broom.

Strong light, particularly direct sunlight can cause a chemical reaction in wood causing it to change color (aging or weathering). Move rugs occasionally and use curtains or blinds to protect the floor from direct sunlight.

High heel shoes, especially worn ones, will dent any hard floor surface, even concrete! Encourage your visitors to take off their high heels on arrival.

With furniture, it is not so much their weight but movement that damages floorboards. Fit protective pads to the legs of tables and chairs so that they can be moved easily without the risk of scuffing the floor.
