5 tips to keep your floor in top condition!

Prevention is better than cure, and that certainly also applies to maintaining your Quick-Step floor. This is why we would like to give you a few handy tips to help you keep your floor in top condition.

Tip 1: Correct Fitting

How to keep your floor in top condition: Correct fitting

It is vital that your floor is fitted correctly. If some of the boards do not fit together properly, or if they are fitted incorrectly, this will encourage dust and dirt particles to penetrate into the joints. This will eventually damage your beautiful floor. You probably want to avoid that.

Tip 2: Take Care When Moving Furniture

How to keep your floor in top condition: Take care when moving furniture

Furniture sometimes needs to be moved about. When that happens, you naturally have to protect your beautiful floor. We recommend that you preferably lift the furniture as much as possible instead of sliding it across the floor.

Is the furniture too heavy for you to lift? Then try putting something under the furniture before moving it. You could use a rug or a piece of cloth, for example. If you haven’t already done so, we also recommend that you fit protective felt pads under your table and chairs. That will help you prevent a great deal of trouble.

Tip 3: Use Water Sparingly When Cleaning

How to keep your floor in top condition: Use water sparingly when cleaning

Your flooring does not really need any special maintenance. Certainly do not use too much water.

To clean your floor, simply use a damp floor cloth or a microfibre cloth.

To clean flooring with bevelled edges or V-grooves, we recommend that you only clean them dry. If you use water to clean them, dirt may collect in the bevelled grooves and may prove difficult to remove. Always vacuum-clean the floor first or sweep it with a microfibre cloth. If necessary, you can subsequently use a damp microfibre cloth.

Tip 4: Ensuring Good Ventilation

Mould and bacteria love damp environments. By ensuring that the room is well ventilated, this will inhibit their growth. This particularly applies to kitchens and bathrooms, as these are the rooms where floors often come into contact with water. It is therefore important to ensure good ventilation. Leave the window or door open from time to time. Your floor will be grateful for that!

Tip 5: Keeping Dirt Particles Out
