Preventing Damage

  • Install barrier mats such as coir matting inside and outside all external doorways.
  • Wipe up any spilt liquids with a cloth as soon as possible; wood will absorb liquid and expand which could affect the stability of the floor.
  • Avoid use of any household cleaners. These can be aggressive and damage or dull the surface and can leave a dangerous slippery film.
  • Your wood needs the right environment: ideally, a room temperature between 15 and 24 degrees Celsius and around 40-65% relative air humidity.
  • Stick felt pads under the legs of all furniture. Lift and avoid dragging when moving the furniture.

Regular Dry Cleaning

Dust can be more apparent on lacquer than other finishes. Dust also acts as an abrasive to in order to prevent any hard particles from building up, regularly dust your floors with a non-abrasive, lint-free mop.

Microfibre mops like the Vileda Spray Pro Inox Mop Kit are great for both dry and wet cleaning of your floors and will help you maintain the look of the high gloss. Vacuums with a hard floor attachment are also suitable.

Wash Care for Oiled & Lacquered Wood Floors

Regular Damp Cleaning

For regular damp cleaning, we recommend Eco Wash Care, an environmentally friendly, PH neutral floor cleaning system designed for everyday cleaning of oiled and lacquered wooden floors. Paired with a Vileda Spray Pro Inox Mop Kit you can be assured your flooring will be gently and thoroughly cleaned and dirt repellent.

Refresher for maintaining & restoring laquered floors

Care & Regeneration

Oak floors are susceptible to getting scratched and can wear over time by leaving it too late. Reviving your flooring is quite simple with our Eco Refresher. This solution was formulated to regenerate and freshen up worn lacquered surfaces while simultaneously improving wear protection. To use, apply your diluted Eco Refresher on a clean floor, with your Vileda Spray Pro Inox Mop – let dry. Eco Refresher can be used regularly (depending on wear).

Magic cleaner bottle

Intensive Cleaning

Eco Magic Cleaner is recommended for intensive cleaning of heavily worn oak floor surfaces. For removal of persistent stains, put a small quantity of Eco Magic Cleaner on your floor and leave for 5-10 minutes then mop off with clean water. Be careful that you do not use steel wool or an aggressive cleaning device when using Magic Cleaner.
