Routine Care & Maintenance
With proper maintenance, your floor will retain its beautiful appearance and remain virtually carefree for years to come.
- Vacuum or dust-mop your floor daily to minimize abrasive grit and dirt. Note: Do not use vacuums with beater bars.
- Blot spills and spots immediately.
- Periodically clean floor with the floor cleaner recommended by Traditional Hardwood Floors LLC. We recommend the Woodpecker Cleaning System, which is designed to work with our floor finishing products to continue to enhance the beauty of your floors.
- Do not use wax, polish, oil, soap, abrasive cleaners, detergents, steel wool, scouring powder or any appreciable amount of water.
Protecting Your Floors
Wood is naturally porous and absorbs and releases moisture. Controlling humidity is the most important factor in preventing problems with moisture and your wood floors. Maintain properly functioning heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems. Try to maintain indoor relative humidity between 45 percent and 50 percent year-round. Humidity causes wood floors to expand, and lack of humidity causes them to shrink. During the winter months, wood floors tend to shrink, causing gaps and cracks to appear. This is an indication that humidity levels in your home are too low. During the summer months, wood expands and requires less humidity. It is important to note any changes in your flooring and make adjustments to your humidifier as necessary, especially during seasonal changes. Dehumidifiers are required in humid environments and are recommended for basements and crawl spaces as necessary to maintain the proper moisture balance.
After years of wear, hardwood floors require an additional application of polyurethane. This maintenance coat restores the luster of the floor, removing many surface scratches.
We provide a limited, one-year warranty for the material, installation and surfacing of hardwood floors.
