Wood Floor Care

Hardwood floors will last forever with proper care. Jimmy Connor Hardwood Flooring uses the most advanced and durable commercial grade finish by Bona, so your hardwood floors are virtually maintenance free. Regular cleaning of your hardwood helps keep floors free of dirt, grit, food crumbs and dust, which are potentially damaging to wood floors.Below, we have compiled what we believe to be some useful information and important tips to follow to ensure long lasting, brilliant floors for years to come.

 

 

  • Never damp mop a wood floor.

  • Floors should be cleaned once every 1-2 weeks.

  • Remove wet spills promptly using a soft cotton cloth.

  • Do not use wax, oil soap, vinegar or other household cleaners.

       These products can dull the finish and make future cleaning

       and re-coating difficult.

 

Preventative Maintenance

  • Preventative Maintenance goes a long way toward protecting

       your hardwood floor and helping it look great for a lifetime of

       enjoyment. Follow these important tips:

  • Regularly trim file your pet's claws

  • Recoat your floors every 5-6 years

  • Never slide furniture across flooring

  • Use a humidifier in the winter months

  • Install EZ-Glide™ protectors on feet of furniture

  • Avoid rubber-backed or other non-ventilated rugs

  • Avoid walking on the floors with high heels or cleats

  • Use mats or throw rugs at entrances and heavy traffic areas

  • Recoating should be done when your floor begins to show wear. A recoat will quickly rejuvenate the floor’s resilience.

 

Newly Finished Floor Care

  • Your newly finished floor is a long term investment. Protect your investment while improving the value of your home by maintaining the quality of your brand new floor with these helpful tips.

  • Avoid cleaning your floors for 7 days.

  • Allow 48 hours before allowing pets on the hardwood.

  • Area rugs may be placed on hardwood flooring after 7 days.

  • Allow 72-hours before moving furniture back on hardwood flooring.

  • Wait 24-hours before walking on floors with stocking feet. After 24-hours, you may walk on the floor with soft sole shoes.
