The key to lasting beauty of your wood flooring investment is proper maintenance for the life of your floor.

Whole Wood’s flooring care guidelines:

  • Vacuum often
  • Dust mop to keep grit and abrasives off floor
  • Blot up spills immediately to protect your floor from water damage
  • Use soft protectors on chairs and furniture
  • Clean using a spray solution of hardwood floor cleaner
  • Never pour cleaner directly on your floor
  • Do not buff, wax or polish
  • Never use abrasive cleaners or wet mop
  • Rearrange rugs and furniture periodically so floor ages evenly
  • Place mats outside and inside entrances or around sinks and dishwashers to protect your floor against spills, sand and abrasives
  • Avoid mats that prevent airflow and moisture like rubber mats or mats with dense backings
  • Keep pets nails trimmed to avoid scratches to your floor
  • Do not walk on floors with spike heeled or sports shoes
  • Maintain indoor humidity between 30%-50%
