ONGOING MAINTENANCE AND CARE

  • Wipe up all spills immediately.

  • Do NOT wet mop a wood floor. Standing water will result in warping and damage.

  • DRY MOP the floor regularly with a microfiber mop.

  • For a deeper clean use ONLY the cleaner recommended by Quality Hardwoods. Some household products will result in long-term damage to your wood floor.

  • Use non rubber-back walk off mats to prevent outside debris from scratching your floor.

  • Place a non rubber-back area rug in front of the kitchen sink and stove.

  • To prevent denting, avoid walking on your wood floors in cleats, sport shoes and high heels.

  • To prevent scratching, keep pet claws trimmed on a regular basis.

  • To keep your floor from cracking or shrinking, and minimize natural movement, maintain consistent humidity and temperature levels
