Care and Maintenance

Polished flooring 

Once the final coating is done on your solid timber floor there is usually a waiting period for the timber floor coating to properly cure.  Depending on the floor coating type, it may take 3 to 7 days for the timber floor coating to cure satisfactorily and become free of odours. During these 3 to 7 days the solid timber floor should not be walked on and all furniture should be kept off the floor.  

Pre-finished Flooring

Pre-finished flooring is ready to walk on as soon as the last floorboard is put in place. You are also able to move your furniture back onto the pre-finished timber floor straight away.

Looking after your floor

Whether your timber floor is polished on site in Geelong or pre-finished the following care and maintenance should be used;

  • Sweep regularly with an antistatic dry mop
  • Use soft brush head vacuum
  • Use damp mop as advised by the coatings manufacturer, often on a fortnightly to monthly basis.
  • Use only recommended cleaning products
  • Apply floor protection to furniture and appliances (e.g. Felt on the bottom of chair legs)
  • Wipe up spills, drips, drops or sprays immediately
  • Keep pet nails trimmed
  • Lift furniture when moving items
  • Use entry rugs and mats to trap grit
  • Move internal rugs regularly

Tips on cleaning your floor

  • When damp mopping, the timber floor needs to be as dry as possible so ensure the mop is well wrung out.  Never leave water residue on the solid timber floor.
  • Sand and grit are an enemy to timber floors, these small particles act like a sandpaper scratching the timber floors.
  • Some commercial cleaning products may be a skin or breathing irritant, check the product safety advice, wear gloves and use the product in a well-ventilated area.
  • When cleaning agents are too concentrated, they will attack the coating and leave a permanently dull mark.
  • Always check the cleaning agent is pH neutral, and test any cleaner on an inconspicuous area of the floor before general use.
