Here are some of our top tips for wooden floor maintenance and keeping them looking brand new:

5 Tips on Wooden Flooring Maintenance


1. Keep gravel and sand outside

The most important thing you can do for your wood floor is get a good doormat to clean and dry shoes before coming in. We recommend removing your shoes before entering. This is one of the simplest, yet most effective tips for good wooden floor maintenance.

2. Put protective pads on furniture

Put soft pads on the bottom of table and chair legs and keep an eye that they haven’t fallen off. Don’t use protectors made of metal as they can wear patches and scratch the wood floor.

3. Wipe away liquid spills immediately

One of the most damaging things to any sort of wood flooring is excess moisture. While our engineered wooden floors are treated in some ways to make them less sensitive to water, you should still aim to clean up spills as soon as they occur to avoid any warping. When you clean the floor, you should also use a damp cloth or mop, and not a wet one.

4. Keep the floor clean

Dry cleaning, rather than wet cleaning, is one of the best wooden floor maintenance tips. Sweep away dust and dirt on a daily basis. You can also use a vacuum cleaner but make sure that you have the correct attachments for a wooden floor.


5. Regular care with a surface maintenance product

Different wooden surfaces require different maintenance products, so be sure to get a high-quality wooden floor cleaner.

For natural oiled wood floors, initial and regular application of natural oil gives the floor a high level of protection. In addition, specific floor soap can be applied daily for simple and thorough cleaning.

3 Easy Ways to Clean Wooden Flooring

Dry cleaning is the best way to clean wooden floors, rather than wet cleaning. Sweeping away dust and dirt daily is great for wooden floor maintenance. Here are 3 easy tips to clean your wooden floor:
Lacquered wood flooring should be cleaned with synthetic cleaner without grease, whereas oiled floors should be cleaned with a floor cleaner that contains grease.
Never pour water onto your wooden flooring as the wood might swell and damage the floor
With regular use, the cleaning agent acts as a natural moisturizing agent and the floor surface will become more resistant to soiling, water, and tear.

Why is it important to polish your newly installed timber flooring?
