Cleaning & Care

Maintaining your prefinished hardwood floor is easy.  Simply sweep, vacuum, or use a dust mop and clean as needed with a leading brand of cleaner such as Bona or Bruce, and a micro-fiber mop made specifically for polyurethane aluminum oxide prefinished hardwood flooring.  Atelier, our most natural looking finish, requires cleaning with a Rubio Monocoat cleaning kit and micro-fiber mop if finished with Rubio Monocoat. All of the finishes we offer provide excellent wear and stain resistance and washing your floor with a compatible cleaner will keep your floor looking its best.  Once installed, your hardwood floor will need cleaning immediately and periodic cleaning will be required to keep the finish and shine of your hardwood floor.

Cleaning Tips

  1. If you use a mop to remove stains on the floor, make sure it’s only damp rather than wet. Excessive water can cause permanent damage to your flooring. For a stubborn spot, we recommend using cleaner applied to a microfiber towel.
  2. Use a soft-bristled broom and a vacuum cleaner that won’t scratch your hardwood floors. It’s essential to keep dirt, pebbles and debris off the finish surface to avoid unnecessary scratching to the finish.
  3. To prevent scratches when moving furniture when cleaning hardwood floors, use felt pads on your furniture feet.
  4. The amount of cleaning required depends on the type of hardwood floor you have and the amount of foot traffic it regularly receives.
