- INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

As a natural living material, hardwood floor must be taken care of after installation has been completed. Flooring should be sheltered from direct sunlight by curtains, blinds or similar window protection. Timber may be affected by heat from sources such as free-standing heaters and stoves, as well as high voltage down lights.

In areas where extreme temperature or moisture variations are common, cracks may appear in the floor. Adding moisture to the air with a humidifier may be the answer. Air conditioners are rarely humidity corrected and particularly in winter, can create an extremely dry atmosphere which can cause shrinkage and cracking of the floor.

Always fit protective pads to the legs of chairs and tables so that they can be easily moved without the risk of scuffing the floor. For furniture with casters, it is preferable that they are composed of soft rubber, as hard rubber/plastic may cause damage to the floor.

Regularly sweep or vacuum the floor, or if you prefer, a damp mop. Do not wet mop a timber floor. Washing your floor with water may cause your floor to ridge or buckle so it should be used sparingly and remain on the floor for the shortest time possible.
