  • Regular Cleaning Routine (Weekly Maintenance Guide)

     

    Step 1: Eliminate Debris and Dust Utilize a vacuum cleaner equipped with a soft bristle head to effectively remove sand, dust, and any other debris from the floor surface. To safeguard the lacquer finish, ensure the vacuum's wheels are clean and move smoothly without causing any damage.

    Step 2: Meticulous Cleaning with Careful Products Use a microfiber mop along with Osmo wash and care solution for thorough cleaning. Alternatively, opt for the Kärcher FC5 Floor Cleaner for optimal results.

     

    Our Recommendations:

    • Prioritize regular sweeping, anti-static mopping, or vacuuming to maintain floor cleanliness.
    • Exclusively rely on Osmo cleaning products as alternatives may yield inferior outcomes or leave detrimental residue.
    • Use a dry to damp mop or cloth for cleaning purposes. Wet or steam mops are not recommended for timber flooring.
    • Avoid excessive wetting of the floor. The surface should dry within 2-3 minutes post-cleaning.
    • Periodically detach the microfiber pad from your mop and clean it to ensure effective dirt removal.

    Note: Following these recommended cleaning procedures will contribute to a well-maintained and enduring floor surface.

     

    Preserving Longevity: Deep Cleaning Protocol(2-5 years)

    Ensuring the longevity of your wood floors involves a vital step: deep cleaning every 2-4 years. This proactive measure removes residual dirt, grime, and scuff marks that routine cleaning might overlook, preserving the enduring beauty of your flooring even after years of use.

     

    Why Deep Cleaning Matters:

    • Thorough Removal: Eliminates deep-seated dirt and scuff marks, maintaining the floor's aesthetic appeal.
    • Enhanced Appearance: Restores the floor's original allure, renewing its overall appearance.

     

    Our Recommendation: Professional Deep Clean We advocate for a professional deep cleaning session using either a Bona® or Kärcher Wood Floor Scrubber. These specialized tools ensure a meticulous and effective cleaning process.

    For sustained floor excellence, trust a professional to conduct a deep clean at the recommended intervals.

    Note: Regular deep cleaning, carried out by a professional using industry-leading equipment, is key to sustaining the timeless beauty of your floors for a lifetime.

     

    Sanding and Recoating- Restoring Your Wood Floor's Elegance (Recommended Every 6-10 Years)

    Is your wood floor exhibiting discoloration, deep scratches, or a lackluster appearance? It might be the opportune moment for a comprehensive sand and recoat procedure. We highly recommend enlisting the expertise of a professional to meticulously sand your floor back to its bare wood foundation. This process is pivotal in reviving your floors to their original splendor.

     

    The Restoration Process:

    Professional Sanding: Entrust a professional to expertly sand your floor, preparing it for refinishing.

     

    Refinishing Options:

    • Colour Stain Application: Implementing 2 coats of Osmo Hardwax Oil rolled on for a personalized color tone.
    • Natural Finish: Apply 3 coats of Osmo Hardwax Oil for a natural, enduring aesthetic.
