care and maintenance

Prefinished floors from BR-111™ provide superior wear and stain resistance. Even so, simple routine care and maintenance will help protect your floors and ensure years of hassle-free enjoyment and natural beauty. For unfinished flooring, follow specific care and maintenance instructions provided by finish manufacturer.


■ Sweep, vacuum, or dust mop regularly to prevent sand or abrasive dust build up that can scratch the floor’s finish.
■ Blot up spills immediately with a damp cloth.
■ Periodically clean floors using a leading brand of cleaner made for prefinished hardwood floors (follow directions on bottle).
■ Do not use ammonia or oil-based wax, polish, abrasive cleaners, or furniture cleaners.


■ Place high-quality floor mats and area rugs near outside entrances to prevent dirt, sand and other unwanted substances from being tracked directly onto flooring.
■ Support heavy furniture and appliances with wide-bearing glides or casters.
■ Affix felt floor protectors on movable furniture, including chairs, tables, and sofas, that sit directly on hardwood flooring.
■ Relative humidity should be maintained between 35% and 55% to minimize expansion and contraction of hardwood flooring.
■ Avoid walking on floors with sharp, “stiletto” style high-heel shoes.
