Caring for wood flooring is essential in order to maintain its appearance for years to come. To help keep your Tuscan wood floor in tip-top condition, we’ve devised some helpful care & maintenance tips below.

  1. Vacuum, sweep or dust mop your floor as and when required. The vacuum head must be brush or felt and a wand attachment is preferable. Do not use vacuums with beater bars or hard heads. Spills and tracked-in dirt should be wiped up immediately.
  2. Periodically cleaning hardwood floors with the appropriate products. We recommend the use of the Bona range of cleaning and maintenance products and that you refer to our separate maintenance leaflet. Use interior and exterior doormats at all entrances to collect dirt and moisture and prevent it from being tracked onto the floor.
    Never use any of the following products (or products similar in nature) on your floor: ammonia-based cleaners, acrylic finishes, wax-based products, detergents, bleach, polishes, abrasive cleaning soaps, or acidic materials such as vinegar.
  3. All Tuscan wood flooring is manufactured from natural products and can be damaged by high heels, pets and inadequate maintenance. Keep animal nails trimmed to minimise scratches to the surface. Use furniture feet protector pads under all furniture and make certain to keep them clean and well maintained.
  4. Keep the relative humidity in your home between 35% and 55%. If water is spilled onto the floor, wipe up immediately as water may permanently damage the floor.
