While floor coatings will dry within 24 hours of application, only light traffic is advisable for up to five to seven days to allow the coating to cure properly.
Furniture can be replaced on the floor after 24 hours but we recommend you use either adhesive pads attached to the bottom of the furniture legs or mats underneath to prevent scratching the floor.
Shoes carry sand, grit and small stones, which will abrade the floor surface like sandpaper. Place mats and rugs inside and outside all entrances to your home. Use runners and rugs in high traffic areas.
Like any quality furnishing or floor covering in your home, direct sunlight will cause discolouration over time. To avoid fading and discolouring, filter direct sunlight with curtains or blinds.
A regular cleaning program is key to keeping your floor looking like new. Just how regularly you need to maintain your floor is totally dependent on your environment. Factors such as the level of traffic, the degree of grit carried onto the floor, whether you have pets and children plus the condition of the ground (paving, decking, grass, clean, dirty) immediately outside your home all have significant influence on the wear and tear of the floor.
Use an anti-static dust mop to collect dust and dirt. We don't recommend using a vacuum cleaner because often the brushes on the vacuum head can wear thin and the floor is then likely to be scratched by the metal.
Wash the floor using one of the non-smear detergents that's an 'all floor surface' cleaner and apply with a sponge mop. Wring out the mop in clean warm water and wipe off the excess liquid, leaving only a damp residue on the timber surface. Avoid harsh detergents and abrasive cleaners and definitely do not use common household cleaners as they may contain a mild abrasive.
