Wood floor enemies

Wood floors are acknowledged for their beauty and their warm appearance. Usual floor cleaners leave streaks, marks and residue that damage and deteriorate your floor.

Water : an excessive amount of water can infiltrate planks causing the deterioration of the joints and discolouration of the wood.

All-purpose cleaners : contain detergents and leave an oily or soapy film on the floor which attracts dirt and dust.

Vinegar : is an oxidant and alters the finish prematurely.

Wax : oil soaps or waxes leave a greasy and oily residue which is then accumulated on surface. These types of products make your wood floor sticky, difficult to maintain and hard to restore.
