FLOOR CARE ESSENTIALS
Click to view DemonstrationWhen moving appliances use 1/8” hardboard such as Masonite when you must slide appliances or heavy furniture. Place Hardboard smooth side down on the floor and slide furniture to desired location on top of the hardboard. Then gently lift up the furniture & remove the hardboard from beneath. Do not ever slide appliances directly on the floor.Do not use any tape, even blue tape, directly on the floor. Tape may peel the finish. Before putting all of your furniture back in place, use protective pads or caps such as our Safeglides or felt pads on feet of furniture. Lift & place furniture where desired. Do not drag or slide furniture directly on top of your wood floor. Dragging the furniture will mar the finish.Vacuum or sweep floor regularly. General cleaning once every week is recommended.Don’t let sand, dirt or grit build up. They can act like sandpaper and actually abrade and dull your floor finish. Maintain a consistent humidity level between heating seasons in all living areas. Excessive swings in humidity levels will cause hardwood floors to swell, shrink, cup, crack and show excessive gaps between boards. The use of humidifier and/or dehumidifier systems is recommended where inconsistent humidity levels occur.Renew worn surfaces with our Swedish Formula Hardwood Floor Refresher before the bare wood is exposed. We carry a full line of Floor maintenance products at our showroom. Place mats at exterior doors to trap sand and grit. Use area rugs in high traffic pathways, at the ends of steps and near doorways. Avoid rubber backing or non-ventilated rugs. Remove spills promptly using our MicroPlus mop or MicroPlus Floor Cloth and our Swedish Formula Floor Cleaner. Don’t use wax, oil soap or other household cleaners on polyurethane finished wood floors. They can dull today’s floor finishes and make refinishing difficult. Don’t walk on your hardwood floors in high heels, and keep heels in good repair.Don’t let your pets’ claws go untrimmed. Proper claw trimming helps avoid scratches and gouges. Don’t damp mop hardwood floors. Too much water can cause the floor to swell or warp.
