Metic Wood Floors Aftercare Program

Your newly installed hardwood floor, with the right cleaning and maintenance, should last you a lifetime.

Below is the simple daily care routine to help prolong the life of your floor.

Daily Care Routine

Floors should be cleaned regularly using dry cleaning methods such as a vacuum or v-mop to remove dirt, dust etc. When required, floors can be cleaned using slightly dampened cloths or mops, with a compatible cleaning product, for example the Bonakemi Parquet Cleaner. Please bear in mind that it is important to keep the amount of water used for cleaning to a minimum.

In regards to oiled floors there is an initial application of two coats, subsequent coats can be applied for an additional protection once the floor shows signs of wear. If a polished finish is required, waxing and buffing should be undertaken, then maintained as and when required.

It is important that regular maintenance is not delayed for too long. Where floors are subject to high volumes of traffic or wear, remedial work such as a light buff and recoat, can greatly prolong the life of your floor. This is a much cheaper, quicker and easier option than a full re-sand of the floor.

Attention should also be paid to the quality, size and positioning of effective matting, especially in entrance hallways. If moisture and abrasive particles of dirt and grit can be prevented from getting onto the floor in the first place, the life of any floor seal will greatly be extended.

The installation and maintenance of a natural wood floor is a specialised procedure, and therefore all maintenance work should be carried out to the same high standards and guidelines as when the floor was installed.
