WE RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING FOR OPTIMUM CARE OF NEW FLOORS:
  • Allow 2-4 hours before walking with SOCKS ONLY on floors treated with water based polyurethane. Normal traffic can commence in 36 hrs.

  • Allow 12-18 hours before walking with SOCKS ONLY on floors treated with oil based polyurethane. Normal traffic can commence in 3 days, as we want to make sure that the oil based polyurethane has had sufficient time to fully cure.

  • Do not put furniture on floors newly treated with water based polyurethane for at least 3 days.

  • Do not put furniture on floors newly treated with oil based polyurethane for at least 5 days.

  • Place FELT padding under table legs, sofas, chairs, etc. Avoid using rubber or plastic which can leave marks in the floor.

  • Do not put area rugs onto floors for at least 7 days.

  • DO NOT put any type of tape, painter’s tape, colored tape directly on to floor. This will strip and damage newly treated floors.

CLEANING YOUR NEWLY TREATED FLOORS
  • Never use Murphy’s Oil, Pledge, Mop & Glo or similar products that contain wax and/or oils. These products can cause severe reactions to your floors, and then maintenance coats will not be possible. Most warranties from finish manufacturers and factory finished wood flooring manufacturers are voided by use of oil soap cleaners.

  • Always use manufacturer’s recommended cleaning products, which will not leave a contaminating residue on the floor. If the manufacturer is not known, one of our trained specialists can recommend an appropriate product. Each floor is unique and different and we want to make sure that years down the road, the floor will look exactly as it did when it was finished.
