When using intensive room heating, the indoor air humidity may drop so low that the floor is prone to dry out. Since cork is a natural material, this may cause shrinkage that will result in minor gaps in the flooring joints. You can use a room humidifier to prevent this.
The recommend relative humidity level is 35-65% at 68°F (20°C).
Cork, as a natural material, may tend to fade when exposed to sunlight. Color change is expected when exposed to natural light over a long period of time.
~ Amorim WISE floors are easy to maintain. Simply vacuum, broom or sweep floor daily/weekly to remove all loose dirt, and then use a damp but not soaking wet mop to clean. You can also use a broom handle with a cloth at the end. Its anti-static characteristics will clean and prevent dust from settling on the floor.
~ Do not use cleaning products with abrasive ingredients or ammonia/solvent based (e.g. acetone). Use simple floor cleaning products or approved products.
~ Avoid excess liquids on floor for prolonged periods of time.
~ Place quality walk-off mats at all entrances to retain dirt, grit and moisture.
~ Never use wire brushes.
~ Do not drag furniture across the floor.
~ Use felt pads on chair and furniture legs.
~ Use protective office mats under the rolling chairs.
~ Never use latex or rubber backed mats as they can permanently stain the floor.
