Complete Guide for Timber Flooring- Care & Maintenance
The Type of Cleaner to Use for Wooden Flooring:
There are different types of non-abrasive, soap-free cleaning solutions available in the market, specifically designed to clean timber flooring. You can use these cleaners for regular cleaning.
Include Sweeping and Vacuuming in Your Cleaning Schedule:
Loose dirt or grit can damage the floor and be picked up using a vacuum cleaner with an effective dust filter and suction nozzle. Avoid using vacuums with a beater bar or power rotary brush head, as they can cause surface damage.
Cleaning Footprints or Dirt from the Floor:
You can use a well-rung damp mop or cloth to remove footprints and dirt. You need to ensure that you don’t use an excessive amount of water while mopping the floor. You can invest in ready-to-use impregnated cleaning cloths available in the market. Even wet wipes are sufficient to make your floor dirt-free.
Things to Avoid:
Avoid using abrasive cleaners, steel wool, nylon scouring pads, scouring powder, or steam cleaners, as they can damage the wooden flooring. Household products like soap, wax, or oil make the floor slippery and may cause fading of the original colour, and therefore, should be avoided. You should also avoid using excessive water for your engineered wood flooring.
