General Care For Hardwood Floors
Maintaining a Surface Finish for Hardwood Floors
Surface finishes are very popular today because they are durable, water-resistant and require minimal maintenance. Surface finishes are blends of synthetic resins. These finishes are most often referred to as urethanes or polyurethanes, and remain on the surface of the Hardwood floor to form a protective coating. They are generally available in high-gloss, semi-gloss and satin.
Dust mop, sweep or vacuum regularly. Clean with a manufacturer's recommended no wax cleaner. Recoat the Hardwood floor after sanding or buffing with a surface finish when cleaning no longer restores the shine. The frequency of recoating Hardwood Floors depends on the amount of traffic. A surface finished Hardwood floor should never be waxed.
Maintaining a Wax Finish for Hardwood Floors
Dust mop or vacuum regularly. Buff to restore shine. Waxing may be necessary when buffing no longer restores shine. Apply a cleaner and liquid wax specifically for Hardwood floors. Apply the wax evenly, allow the Hardwood floor to dry and buff to the desired luster. If the hardwood floor has dirt build up or the wax is discolored, use a combination liquid cleaner/wax made specifically for Hardwood flooring. Make sure it is solvent rather than water base. Spread the liquid cleaner/wax with a cloth or fine steel wool and rub gently to remove grime and old wax. Wipe the floor clean, let it dry for about 20 minutes and buff. Depending on the traffic, a properly maintained Hardwood floor should only need waxing once, or twice a year. Be sure to follow manufacturer’s directions carefully.
Maintaining Acrylic Impregnated Hardwood Floors
Acrylic Impregnated finishes are injected into the Hardwood to create a super hard, extremely durable floor. Acrylic Impregnated finishes are rarely used in residential applications. They most often are used in high traffic areas and commercial settings such as malls and restaurants.
Some acrylic impregnated Hardwood floors are coated with urethane. For general cleaning, follow procedures for surface finishes. For general cleaning non-urethane coated acrylic impregnated Hardwood floors, use a spray and buff system as recommended by the manufacturer.
