GENERAL CARE & MAINTENANCE TIPS
Dog & Animal Care
Keep nails clipped. Dogs running through the house will scratch any finish. Put down a mat to stand between your pet’s water dish and your wood floor.
Area Rug Backings
Only rugs with a natural backing (i.e., felt) are safe for a wood floor. Avoid rugs with a rubber or abrasive backing, as these can damage or discolor a floor.
Non-abrasive, felt-backed products are best. Rubber or plastic backed products can trap moisture & discolor your floor.
Removing Scuff Marks
If scuff cannot be removed using a damp rag, stubborn scuffs can be removed by the use of a tennis ball or pencil eraser. Gently rub in direction of grain.
During the cleaning process, rinse applicator often in a separate pail of clean water. A dirty applicator can spread dirt to other areas, causing streaks & haziness.
Remember: use a damp (never wet) applicator —Squeeze out surplus water.
PROTECTIVE SURFACE RENEWAL: When necessary, to retain the original surface properties over years you must renew the worn surface areas using OSMO Polyx-Oil products (appropriate to the original finish). Clean floor thoroughly, allow to dry, and then apply a thin coat of Polyx-Oil.
