Caring for your Floors


An investment

Hardwood floors are an investment that not only adds beauty to your home, but will add lasting value as well. In fact, the National Wood Flooring Association has found that homes with hardwood floors typically command a price up to 10% higher than identical homes without hardwood flooring

With proper hardwood floor care, your floors can last a lifetime. Follow these tips on how to care for your solid or engineered hardwood floor and by doing so, you will have no problem protecting your investment for years to come.

Hardwood Floor Care Recommendations:

Protection starts with prevention. Place rugs or mats in or around entryways and highly trafficked areas to catch dirt and debris that can cause scratches to wooden surfaces. 

Our hardwood floors are of the highest quality and are finished with UV Oil. We recommend regular maintenance to protect and preserve the surface. 

Any moisture spillage should be immediately cleaned with a dry cloth. Do not allow any moisture to pool on the surface, as this will cause damage to the floor. 

Daily cleaning should be done with a vacuum cleaner (with felt pads fitted to avoid scratching), a static mop, or a smooth broom. Any sand, dirt, or grit should be immediately removed as it causes scratches and damages to any floor’s surface. 

Whenever necessary, the floor surface can also be cleaned with a damp mop or a special polish to remove any stains or grease. 

It is highly recommended to place felt pads under furniture or chairs to protect the floor surface.

We recommend that the floor be recoated with an oil refresher product (WOCA or Bona).

Wood flooring is also affected by UV light and will change in color when exposed for a long duration.
