Answers to All Your Contracting Inquiries
Answers to All Your Maintenance Inquiries
ARE HARDWOOD FLOORS DIFFICULT TO MAINTAIN?
No. In many cases they are as easy or easier than carpet, ceramic tile, laminate or vinyl.
WHAT DO I USE UNDER MY FURNITURE TO PROTECT THE HARDWOOD FLOOR FROM SCRATCHING?
Our offers felt protector pads to use in place of the hard metal or plastic buttons that are placed on the legs of furniture. You should use these on all the legs of your furniture to prevent damage to the floor.
MY HARDWOOD FLOORS HAVE LOST THEIR SHINE. HOW DO I GET THEM TO LOOK LIKE THEY DID WHEN THEY WERE NEW?
We offer a product called Fresh Finish that can be applied to a urethane-finished floor to refresh the original appearance.
WHERE CAN I FIND ALL OF THESE MAINTENANCE PRODUCTS?
You need to check with the retail outlet where you purchased your flooring. They should have the full line of maintenance products at their store.
WHAT SHOULD I USE UNDER MY AREA RUGS?
A breathable rug underlay. Mesh or grid patterns are best.
WHAT OTHER CLEANING PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR MY HARDWOOD FLOOR?
We do not recommend any alternative products for maintaining your floors. Use only the recommended cleaners and maintenance products that are manufactured by Bruce Hardwood Floors exclusively for factory finished hardwood floors.
CAN I ROLL HEAVY FURNITURE ACROSS MY HARDWOOD FLOORS?
No. When moving or rolling heavy pieces of furniture or appliances, use protection, such as strips of 1/4" hardboard as a runner under the wheels or legs. Always move items with caution (see denting under general FAQ's).
CAN I MOP MY HARDWOOD FLOORS USING HOT, SOAPY WATER?
No. Water can prematurely age your hardwood floors and cause them to crack and split.
