Discover what you can do to extend your Parquet’s lifespan even more.
Once installed, a Quick-Step hardwood floor is immediately ready for use. However, if you want to clean it first, don’t use any protective products. Just remove all dust and loose dirt with a soft broom and a dust pan. If you wish to use a moist mop, be sure to follow these instructions for more intensive cleaning:
The right humidity in a room (between 40 and 60%) is crucial to protect your floor. Warm air easily becomes too humid, potentially making the wood planks expand. The colder the air, the less water it contains, which can make wood shrink. During winter, heating systems further dehydrate the air indoors.
A hygrometer can give you the specifics about the humidity in your home. Make sure to attach it to an indoor wall, not too close to a window. If the air is too dry or humid, humidifiers, air scrubbers and dehumidifiers can do the trick.
There’s also a natural way of solving room humidity problems: houseplants. They release oxygen, moisten the air and purify it: that’s not only good for your hardwood floor, but for your health as well. A double win!
Like natural stone, oiled hardwood floors need to be treated regularly. Oiling stops your parquet from looking dry and dull. With the right oil, such as the Quick-Step Oil Care, you can bring out its natural beauty.
For oiled wood floors that need intense care and repair, you can use the Quick-Step Maintenance Oil. For intense care and repair, use the Quick-Step Maintenance Oil every 6-12 months.
Oiled wooden floors have a beautiful sheen, and the oil protects them from dirt. When oiling a wooden floor, there are three steps you should follow for excellent results. Read our simple guide below!
It’s important to know that Quick-Step oiled wood floors have already been treated with oil and should not be sanded. We recommend to re-oil them once or twice a year in rooms that are exposed to wear and tear, but less frequently in areas with less traffic. If the floor looks dry or if stains are becoming difficult to remove, it should be re-oiled. Carefully vacuum and mop the floor, and then leave it to dry for at least half an hour.
Spread a thin, even layer of Quick-Step maintenance oil on the wooden floor using a microfiber cloth. Your local dealer will help you with advising on which product to use. There is white and transparent maintenance oil.
Let the Quick-Step maintenance oil soak in for a few minutes. Finish up by wiping the surface with a clean microfiber cloth.
Allow the floor to rest and harden for at least 12 hours, but ideally up to 24 hours.
