UV Oiled Floor Maintenance

6

General Maintenance

  • Prevent accumulation of grit and abrasive dust which can scratch and dull the surface. Do this with regular sweeping and vacuuming and by installing barrier mats such as coir matting inside and outside all external door ways.
  • Protect all furniture with felt pads to avoid any scratching with movement.
  • Wipe up any spilled liquids and avoid any standing water or liquid as wood will absorb liquid and expand which could effect the stability of the floor. Any stains should be removed while wet with a clean damp cloth.
  • Avoid use of any household cleaners. These can be abrasive and damage or dull the surface and can leave a dangerous slippery film.
