This is a topic we keep revisiting. With proper maintenance, your wood flooring will look beautiful for many decades. However, the use of cleaning products not approved by the manufacturer may cause irreparable damage to the finish and void your warranty. We do not recommend steam mops, vinegar, or any of the do-it-yourself wood floor cleaning concoctions you may find recipes for on the internet. The best advice we can give is to use only manufacturer-approved maintenance products on your wood flooring. If you have any questions, please consult our flooring experts. You’ll also find maintenance tips and links to our suppliers’ sites on our website. Another great resource is Hardwood Flooring Magazine’s article ‘Clear Up Confusion About Wood Floor Maintenance’.
