Our Tips For Care And Maintenance

After the final coat has been applied a general guide states the floor will be touch dry in 1-3 hours. We recommend staying off the floor for a further 24 hours. Where possible heavy furniture should not be placed back until 2 weeks following the coating and rugs four weeks following. This is to allow the floor time to properly cure.

As each coating differs in terms of after care. It is essential that the correct care procedure is followed when returning back to the use of your floor. A member of our team will discuss this with you in detail on the job and provided further information on the accurate steps depending on the coating choice that has been selected.

Establishing a regular cleaning and maintenance protocol will highly assist in keeping your floors in great condition.
