Care Instruction


Coatings generally take between 2-3 hours to dry, but they will take approximately 7 – 14 days to fully harden. It is important to follow these guidelines:

  • When necessary you can walk on the floor in stocking feet after 24 hours (or depending on advice from tradesmen).
  • Avoid walking on the surface with street shoes for 7 days.
90% of the curing takes place after 24hours, but care should be taken for the first 2 weeks until the floor has fully hardened.
Light furniture can be replaced in this time – use protective felt pads, and avoid dragging furniture as it may scratch the surface.
Heavy items such as fridges should be moved carefully ensuring they are not dragged over new floors.
Wait 2 weeks before laying rugs.

Wood Floor Maintenance and Care Guide:

  • Wood Floors are a lifetime investment, and decisions concerning them should not be taken lightly
  • Routine maintenance should include protecting the surface finish from moisture and heavy wear which creates scratches. This maintenance requires more than sweeping and vacuuming.
  • Always clean your wood floors periodically with a professional wood floor cleaning product recommended by a wood flooring professional and/or the manufacturer of your particular hardwood floor product. Not doing so may void any warranty or guarantee on the product.
