Steps to proper Hardwood Cleaning & Care:

  • Sweep or vacuum floors regularly.
  • Remove spills promptly with a dry cloth or paper towel.
  • Thoroughly clean your floor once a week or as needed.
  • Use cleaning products only recommended by Rob's. Never use soaps, detergents,oils or waxes on your hardwood floor.
  • Place area rugs at doorways to help catch dirt and sand from incoming traffic.
  • Keep your pets nails trimmed.
  • Kick off your shoes at the door, especially those high heels.
  • Keep humidity between 40% and 60%. As excessive humidity may cause wood fibers to swell, causing the floor to cup or creating cracks in the finish.
  • To reduce excessive shrinkage in the winter a humidifier is recommended while air conditioning and a dehumidifier are for the summer for swelling.
  • To move furniture properly across a wood floor it, should be picked up.
  • Felt pads on all furniture will help with scratching and denting.
  • Be careful with potted plants on the floor. Always watch for moisture and condensation.
  • Plastic toys, plastic garbage cans and plastic totes scratch the surface easily.
  • Do not place area rugs or carpet for 30 days after the final coat. It takes this long for the finish to cure to its full hardness, under ideal conditions.
