GrandForest Floor Care Essentials

What To Do

  • Vacuum or sweep floor regularly. General cleaning every 2 weeks is recommended.
  • Remove spills promptly.
  • Use protective pads or caps on "feet" of furniture.
  • Place mats at exterior entries to catch sand and grit. Use area rugs in all high traffic paths, at the ends of steps and near doorways to outside elements. Avoid rubber backed or non-ventilated rugs.
  • Maintain a consistent humidity level between seasons. Excessive swings in humidity levels will cause hardwood floors to swell, shrink, cup, crack and show excessive gaps between boards. The use of humidifier/dehumidifier systems is recommended where inconsistent humidity levels occur.

What Not To Do

  • Don't let sand, dirt or grit build up on floors. This will act like sandpaper and actually abrade, distress and dull your floor finish.
  • Don't wet mop hardwood floors. Don't flood floors. Often too much water can cause the floor to swell or warp.
  • Don't let your pets' claws go untrimmed. Claw trimming avoids scratches and gouges in your flooring.
  • Don't walk on hardwood floors in high heels, and keep heels in good repair. Stiletto heals can cause punctures in the flooring.
  • Don't use wax, oil soap or other household cleaners on polyurethane finished wood floors. They can dull today's floor finishes and make refinishing difficult.
