Our Care Tips

There are many ways in which you can look after your reclaimed hardwood flooring such as remembering to be careful when rearranging furniture. With the flooring being in your home it is understandable that furniture may be moved around now and again which is why you must be considerate of the flooring underneath. We advise that you never drag any large or heavy objects across the floorboards which will prevent any dents, scratches or marks.


Another great way to make sure your flooring stays in tacked is to avoid exposing your flooring to too much sunlight. Having sunlight on the floorboards for a long period of time can result in ‘spotting’ which causes light and dark spots to appear which could ultimately ruin the look of your wood. If your house is naturally quite bright and attracts a huge amount of light there are things that you can put in place to prevent any damage to your flooring. A good way to do this is to place rugs or carpet runners on the areas where the sunlight directly hits.


To keep your flooring looking clean and pristine you want to make sure to regularly sweep, vacuum and dust. It is also important that people with pets keep sharp claws trimmed to prevent any scratches across the floor which could ruin the coating of the floorboards. Despite your best efforts your wooden flooring may receive a bit of wear and tear especially in a home environment, however, it is important that you are a bit more considerate of the everyday occurrences that may cause damage to your flooring.
