Hardwood flooring is a natural product and therefore is subject to environmental changes. The ideal relative humidity in your home for hardwood flooring is 30-50%.
Wood expands in the spring and summer when the temperature and humidity levels rise. It is recommended you use a de-humidifier frequently during these months, failure to do so may cause cupping.
Wood contracts in the fall and winter when the temperature drops and the air in your home becomes drier. It is recommended you use a humidifier frequently during these months, failure to do so may cause noticeable cracks between boards.
The hardwood should be in your home no less than 24 hours prior to installation, so that they can acclimate to your home’s atmosphere.
Due to the natural characteristic of hardwood flooring, over time, the sun’s UV rays will affect the shade of the wood.
~ Clean hardwood floors only with products recommended by the manufacturer.
~ Clean spills with a lightly dampened cloth and a cleaning product recommended by the manufacturer.
~ Do not use a wet mop on hardwood floors, and be sure to wipe up water spills as soon as possible. Excess water will cause deterioration of the wood itself, as well as the finish.
~ Sweep or dust your floor regularly to avoid buildup of dirt/sand which may lead to scratches/dents.
~ Use felt or rubber protective pads under furniture to prevent scratching.
~ Do not slide or drag heavy furniture across hardwood floors, use protective mats or lift.
~ Use floor mats in high traffic areas that are susceptible to moisture and/or dirt (i.e. near entrance / exit ways)
