|Use of mats at the entrance is a good idea to prevent stones and small
grit from scratching your new floor.
|Direct sunlight will discolour the floor over time. Try to avoid this
by filtering direct sunlight with curtains or blinds.
|Regular maintenance/cleaning of your new floor is essential in keeping
your floors looking great.
|Use an anti-static dust mop to collect dust and dirt. Vacuum cleaners
can be used but may scratch the floor.
|Floor can be washed with a sponge mop using clean, warm water. A half
a cup of methylated spirits per household bucket may be added to water.
|Avoid using harsh detergents and abbrasive cleaners as these may scratch
or dull your floor.
|Floors are subject to different wear patterns depending on their use,
traffic, density, traffic paths and the purposes for which the premises
or rooms are used. It is therefore difficult to generalise in predicting
the time when a maintenance coat is desirable. It is important, however,
to ensure a floor is recoated before it has worn excessively to avoid
the additional expense of totally resanding and coating the floor with
a number of coats. In most cases, a regular maintenance coat after a few
years will eliminate the need for more costly repairs.
