  • Sweep or vacuum regularly, since built-up grit can damage the finish and surface of hardwood. The vacuum head must be a brush or felt type. Be certain the wheels of the vacuum are clean and do not damage the finish. Do not use a vacuum with a beater bar head.

  • Remove spills promptly using a soft cloth and cleaning products.

  • Never mop or flood your floor with water or other products. This can severely damage the flooring.
