After the final coat of finish has dried, it is a good idea to open your windows.

 

The first week, we suggest sock feet. If you move furniture in, sit it down, but do not slide.

 

Apply furniture protectors to bottoms of all legs.

 

Area Rugs may be placed on floors 30 days after the finishing is completed.

 

Sweeping, vacuuming and dust mopping are essential to hardwood floor maintenance.

 

If you need to mop, use a sponge or rag mop with a small amount of water,

 

then run a towel wrapped around a broom over the area mopped.

 

It is acceptable to mix a little Windex in your mop water.

 

The solution mix is ¼ cup to 1 gallon water.

 

Bona hardwood floor cleaner is recommended as well.

Murphy’s Oil Soap

Paste Wax

Pledge, or any other wax or silicone-based products
