Regardless of what type of finish is on the floor – sweep or vacuum at least once a week. Spills and excess water should be wiped up immediately. Dust or damp mop in between weekly cleaning to help eliminate the fine particles of dirt or grit that act like sandpaper and will scratch any floor. Wring the mop out well before cleaning.

Use a mild detergent or neutral floor cleaner. Any liquid cleaner for wood flooring is acceptable to use.

  • Avoid abrasive, alkaline or cheap cleaners
  • Keep surface free of grit, sand and cinders
  • Avoid flooding the floor with water
  • Protect against indentations from furniture
