Cleaning the Floor

Things to Avoid

Be Careful To...

We recommend that you take maximum precautions to keep your new floors looking their best.

Watch Your Feet

Don't walk on your flooring with stiletto-style heels, spiked golf shoes, or cleats. They will cause small indentations in your flooring.

Use Floor Protectors on Furniture

Use floor protectors such as felt pads or round floor coasters on all furniture, tables, chairs, etc… to prevent denting and scratching.

Watch Your Pet's Feet

Keep your pet's nails trimmed to keep them from scratching your flooring surface.

Rearrange Your Rugs and Furniture

Periodically rearranging your area rugs and furniture will allow the flooring to age evenly. UV sunlight will soften the tone of different species of hardwood to varying degrees.

Maintain Relative Humidity Level

Maintain a normal indoor relative humidity level between 35% and 55% year round to minimize the natural expansion and contraction of wood.

During heating season (if humidity is below 25%):

A humidifier is recommended to prevent excess shrinkage due to low humidity levels during dry winter months. Wood stove and electric heat tend to create very dry conditions.

During non-heating season (if humidity is over 65%):

A dehumidifier or periodically turning on your heating system can maintain proper humidity during the summer months.
