Q:Hi, We've installed about 3500 sq feet of this product and although we love how it looks, I'm having a difficult time finding something to clean it properly. I've used the Bona cleaners, and a shark steam mop. The floors look to have a dull residue and have lost almost all of their luster. Suggestions?
A:Our wood floors are manufactured for maximum durability, easy maintenance and finished with a high quality aluminum oxide water base urethane UV cured finish. This step protects the wood and helps keep the flooring looking beautiful longer. While highly durable, the finish is NOT considered indestructible. However, by observing a few precautions like setting up a regular cleaning routine and simple maintenance program to protect the finish, you can expect years of performance and beauty from your wood floor. All wood floors can show signs of wear over time. There are many factors that can affect the amount of wear. These include the size and lifestyle of your family and product location. The following cleaning principles are recommended for all of our products -Hardwood, Laminates, Corks, Bamboo and other Exotics. Outlined are examples of the reasonable and necessary maintenance to be performed; this is only intended to be a basic list; • Immediately after installation, be certain that the flooring is completely cleaned and dry as described below. If you must protect the flooring from traffic, use only "craft" paper, brown, red or white, this will allow the flooring to "breathe". Do not fully cover the flooring. NEVER lay plastic of any kind or any other non-porous material over the flooring as this can trap moisture, harm the flooring or fade the finish. • Sweep or vacuum regularly, since built-up dirt, grit and sand can damage the surface of the wood. If using a vacuum, use a soft brush attachment -NOT A BEATER BAR ATTACHMENT. Be certain the wheels of the vacuum are clean and do not damage the finish. When using a broom be certain that bristles are soft. You can also use a dry mop. • Because of the myriad of cleaning products available and methods of each application, Lumber Liquidators cannot endorse or oversee the use of any Brand Name of floor cleaner. We do recommend cleaning products safe for urethane finishes such as our Bellawood floor cleaner. • The use of a changeable terry cloth type system to clean the floor is highly recommended; apply cleaning solution to the terry cloth not the floor. • NEVER use oil soaps, liquid, or paste wax products or other household cleaners that contain lemon oil, Tung oil, silicone, or ammonia on pre-finished flooring. The use of these products will harm the long-term performance and appearance of your floor and may affect future re-coating. (Damages caused by non-recommended cleaning products are not covered by warranties). NOTE: This also includes the use of vinegar and water solutions as water can damage wood. Vinegar is an acidic element that can have an oxidizing, caustic effect on the finish. • In an effort to clean hardwood floors, many have experimented with a variety of cleaners on the market and end up with a new problem. "How to remove the build-up of cleaning products revealing the original surface"? If this is the case with you, we recommend consulting with a professional cleaner local to your area because they can best see the details involved and make the most accurate recommendations. If you choose to remove the layers of build-up yourself, use cotton rags instead of a mop to control the amount of liquid used. • NEVER wet-mop, damp-mop, swab or flood your floor with water or any other product. Moisture can seep into the seams causing edge-cupping damage. Urethane floors do not require wet mopping. Natural floors are water resistant, not water proof. Remove all spills promptly using a soft, slightly damp cloth • STEAM CLEANERS OR WET-JET swiffer; Lumber Liquidators does not recommend "Water brooms" "Wet-Jet Swiffers or steamer type cleaners on laminates, corks or hardwood floors. Although steamers may work well cleaning OTHER types of hard surface flooring, the 130° to 240° heated steam vapor can ruin wood or urethane finish resulting in warped or cupped flooring. Water and wood do not mix well, especially steam. Use these products at your own risk. • Do place protective mats at entry doors to keep dirt, grit, sand and moisture from being track in from the outside. • Do use area rugs in heavily traveled areas and pivot points (e.g., stair landings, room entries, etc.), especially if you have a large family or indoor pets. • When using area rugs, use a rug pad with a felt, plant or PVC based backing. DO NOT use area rugs with a petroleum based rubber backing (typically black) as this can cause permanent chemical staining/etching of the floor finish. • Take reasonable precautions; use a dolly and protective sheets of plywood when moving heavy objects such as furniture and appliances. • Place protective pads beneath furniture legs and feet to reduce scratches and dents. Check and replace wore pads regularly. • Keep pet's nails trimmed, and paws clean and free of dirt, gravel, grease, oil, and stains. • Scratches, dents and cupping are site related, not considered a manufactured defect. Thank you for your inquiryIf you have used other cleaning products, you have to remove the product from the floor finish before using the Dream Home laminate cleaner.
Q:Wood is product of China, does it mean its grown in China or is it grown somewhere else and finished in China ?
A:This is finished in China, Acacia may be locally grown or may be sourced from other countries.
Q:can you tell me
A:1. Our Casa de Colour floors are factory pre-finished with an aluminum oxide water-base urethane using a multi-step application process. Each coat is hard-cured using Ultraviolet (UV) light (The actual number of coats is proprietary).
Q:I'm thinking on using this in a entry way its only about 3'x4' at the front door. I live in Nebraska so it has to hold up to wet shoes with snow and of course every day dirt that comes in with the shoes. we do see 100 degrees during the summers with high humidity as well. will this product hold up to the moisture from wet shoes setting on it over night?
A:Despite today's advanced technology, water spills, dirt and other abrasive substances can damage a wood floor's finish. Location, traffic patterns, how often the floor is vacuumed and cleaned, children and/or pets are all factors that influence wear and durability.
Q:What is the finish on this floor? Can it be buffed/polished?
A:This is a UV cured urethane with aluminum oxide finish.
Q:we just bought this flooring and installed it throughout our house. it is beautiful. we would like to stain our stair handrail and boxed newel to match. Any suggestions on the correct stain color to use?
A:We recommend taking a piece of flooring to a professional paint store like Sherman Williams or Benjamin Moore and they can tint the stain to match.
Q:Could the Golden Teak be used inside a sail boat as a floor panel? How is this product with regards to moisture?
A:This is not appropriate because it is pre-finish. Urethane finish can't handle the dimensional changes that take place with extreme environmental shifts.
A:You can find complete installation instructions on the product page by clicking on the specs tab and then clicking on - Installation Guide.pdf
Q:can you use this with floor radiant heat
A:At this time Lumber Liquidators only recommends floating floors (flooring not attached to the subfloor) for radiant heat applications. This is because solid wood, even species with better dimensional stability characteristics than others cannot predictably be guaranteed to perform well over heated floors. Be aware that in addition to this, radiant systems and its operation can negatively impact the long term finish performance of wood flooring and may result in finish chipping, peeling or hazy finish.
Q:Is there a stair nosing to match this floor?
