BEYOND OUR CONTROL: CRACKS ON SOME FLOORS MAY HAPPEN AFTER SANDING & POLISH (MORE OFTEN ON PINE FLOORS) DUE TO THE CHANGE OF THE MOISTURE CONTENTS ON FLOORS AND TEMPERATURE.
This usually takes about 1-2 weeks to fully cured (Winter season takes a longer time).
Protective Pads: Attach a self adhesive felt pad to the legs of chairs, tables, beds and other furniture to protect the floor and to reduced noise.
Entrance Matting: Dirt, grits and sand can be picked up under shoes. Entrance mats help to trap and minimise the amount of damaging particles from scratching and prematurely wearing the floor surface.
Cleaning: A fringe or static mop is ideal for sweeping timber floors and vacuuming floors with brush head. Regular washing of your floor will enhance it’s appearance and keep it clean, shiny and safe.
Wipe up all spills immediately.
DO NOT LEFT WATER ON THE FLOORS TOO LONG.
DO NOT USE: Wax, silicon based products , Ammonia, harsh detergents. Scrubbing brushes, steel wool.
Re-coating: The life of a coated timber floor depends greatly on amount of traffic and maintenance. Always re-coat before a finish is worn through, or begins to show signs of wear, this will save both time and money on having your floor re-sanded.
Coatings: – Alcrest uses products that are all re-coatable, provided appropriate surface preparations are carried out prior to re-coating.
