Hardwood floors maintenance guidelines for commercial applications

Following the recommended maintenance and prevention guidelines set forth in this guide will help preserve and prolong the natural appearance of hardwood flooring.

Routine Maintenance

1 2 3 Cleaning

1. Sweep or vacuum hardwood floor and area rugs regularly to remove dust and abrasive dirt.

Caution The wheels of the vacuum cleaner should be in good condition, and its cleaning accessories must be free of all abrasive particles that could scratch the finish.

2. Lightly spray the cleaner on a five square foot section of the floor. Never pour liquid directly onto the floor. The concentrated cleaner must be diluted before use;  one part cleaner to four parts water.

Caution Alive Series and Knotty Walnut floors: Never spray cleaner or any other liquid onto the surface of the floor. Clean the floor by spraying cleaner directly on the mop cover.

3. Swiftly wipe the surface of the floor with the mop, using a to-and-fro motion across the length of the floorboards. Finish cleaning one section before starting on a new area of the floor.

> Never use floor wax, oil-based detergent, or any other household cleaner on the floor. These products can dull or damage the finish, and can leave a greasy ! film that makes the floor slippery, difficult to maintain, and impossible to refinish without deep sanding and complete refinishing. Do not use steam cleaners.
