All of our hardwood floors come with detailed fitting instructions. It is extremely important that you read these carefully before installing your floor. The instructions are there to help you to get the best possible results from your new wooden floor.
Hardwood planks can be purchased with a raw face that gets finished by a professional after installation, or prefinished, which arrives with the stain and topcoat already applied. The advantage of prefinished wood is that you know exactly what you`re getting.
If you need an excuse to shop, the one must-have decor item with hardwood flooring is a rug. It will perform double duty as a decorating piece and floor protector.
Leave stilettos and tap shoes at the door to avoid puncturing the wood. While you`re at it, consider enforcing a no-shoe policy for all types of footwear to keep things extra clean.
A sun-kissed glow looks great on skin but not on wood floors. Inspect floors once a month — don`t forget to peep under rugs, too, and if there`s any discoloration, it`s time to consider a fresh topcoat.
As soon as your hardwood flooring has been delivered to your property, it is important to let it acclimatise sufficiently. Acclimatising means to allow the flooring to adapt to its new surroundings.
