Proper maintenance makes flooring life longer

Many consumers will neglect the maintenance of new furniture and newly installed wood flooring in their homes because they are too happy after the completion of the new home decoration. Little do we know that the maintenance of newly installed floors requires patience and care, in order to make the floor life longer.

1. Keep the floor dry and clean
It is not allowed to mop the floor with water or scrub it with soda or soapy water to avoid damaging the brightness of the paint and damaging the paint film. In case of ash or dirt, dry mop or twisted wet mop can be used to wipe. Wax once a month or two months (wipe off steam and dirt before waxing).

2. Preventing Ground Leakage
In case of heating or other leakage on the ground, it must be cleaned in time, not directly with the sun or electric oven baking, in order to avoid drying too fast, floor cracking.

3. Don’t put the hot tub on the floor.
Painted floors do not last for a long time. Do not cover them with plastic cloth or newspapers. The paint film will stick and lose its luster over a long period of time. At the same time, do not put hot water basins, hot rice cookers and other objects directly on the floor. Use wooden boards or straw mats to cushion them so as not to burn the paint film.

4. Timely removal of floor stains
Local surface contamination should be removed in time, if there is oil stain can be wiped with cloth or mop dipped in warm water or a small amount of detergent, or with neutral soap water and a little detergent. If the stain is serious and the method is ineffective, it can be gently wiped with high-quality sandpaper or steel wool. If it is a stain of medicine, beverage or pigment, it must be removed before the stain penetrates into the wood surface. The cleaning method is to wipe it with a soft cloth dipped in furniture wax. If it is still ineffective, wipe it with steel wool dipped in furniture wax. If the surface of the floor layer is burned by cigarette butts, it can be restored to brightness by hard wiping with a soft cloth soaked with furniture wax. If ink is contaminated, it should be wiped with wax-soaked soft cloth in time. If ineffective, it can be wiped with steel wool dipped in furniture wax.

5. Avoiding Sunshine on Floor
After laying the paint floor, try to minimize direct sunshine, in order to avoid excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation, drying and aging in advance. Furniture placed on the floor should be padded with rubber or other soft objects to prevent scratching of floor paint.

6. The warping floor should be replaced
When the floor is in use, if it is found that individual floors are warping or falling off, it is necessary to pick up the floor in time, remove the old glue and dust, apply new glue and compact it; if the paint film of individual floors is damaged or exposed to white, it can be polished with 400 water sandpaper dipped in soapy water, and then wiped clean it. After drying, it can be partially repaired and painted. After 24 hours of drying, it can be polished with 400 water sandpaper. Then polish with wax.
