How to Maintain a Queensland Floor and Prevent Scratches.
Maintaining your floor will not only enhance its natural beauty; it will also increase the life expectancy of the coating and the floor. As a tip always provide a good dirt trap mat at the front and back doors, this will help eliminate dirt, sand, grit and other abrasives from being walked onto the floor and subsequently scratching the coating.
Also provide a mat in areas of heavy traffic like the kitchen sink, as the swiveling action from the balls of your feet can act like a small sander if grit is walked through the house, and shorten the life of the coating.
Try to always wipe or mop up spills immediately, preventing any chance of swelling or staining of the floor or the coating.
Cleaning Your Floor
When cleaning your floor try to use an electro-static broom (if not a soft brush broom is fine)
DO NOT USE WET FLOOR WIPES OR OIL MOPS.
DO NOT USE STEAM MOPS.
