Floor Care Tips
- Felt Pads: Don’t let furniture and chairs scratch & gouge your floor. Put Felt pads under everything.
- No Dust Build Up: Settled & built up dust causes scratches when walked on. Dry dust your floor with a hardwood floor mop frequently.
- No Water: Don’t let water sit on your floor as it will eat away at your finish. Use a microfiber wood floor mop head, rinse in water and ring out well for a light damp mop.
- Apply Bona-Kemi hardwood floor cleaner – times a month.
- Purchase a Floor Doctor Protection Plan
Re-Coat every 2-4 years!!

All the daily walking, dust, scratches, sunlight and normal wear and tear is constantly making your floor finish thinner. Re-Coating before damage get’s to the wood level is highly important to protecting your investment & time. Once you start seeing noticeable scratching, dullness and imperfections, schedule a check up and we’ll stop out and let you know if it’s ready for a Re-coat.
