Maintaining your Vinyl floor

The key to keeping any vinyl floor in good shape is to keep it clean, and sheet vinyl is no exception. Get the dirt off before it gets ground in, and your vinyl will last longer. Sweep frequently. It’s a good idea to get in the habit of quickly running a soft broom across the kitchen floor every evening after you put the dishes in the dishwasher.

Wooden Floor Cleaning

Day to day cleaning should only be done with a soft brush or vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt. Liquid spills should be wiped up immediately.

Depending on the type of finish you choose for your wood floor will require different types of cleaning:

Oiled floors should only be washed occasionally using wood floor soap, which leave a protective layer on your wood. Once a year a floor should be re-oiled. This will be in either in the form of a liquid paste wax for pre-waxed and hardwax oil finishes, maintenance oil for oxidising oil finishes or maintenance paste for UV cured oiled finishes.

Lacquered surfaces should only ever be damp cleaned and never washed. Application of a suitable polish / refresher product will help to protect the surface of the timber.

Please stop by the shop to view all the products that we have available to purchase for maintaining wood floors.
