Preven � ve Maintenance This fl ooring is beau � ful and durable, but it is NOT indestruc � ble. Here are some � ps to keep your fl oor looking its best. Protect your fl oor when using a dolly for moving furniture or appliances. Protec � ve shee � ng may be needed. Never slide or roll heavy furniture or appliances across the fl oor. Floor
protectors (nylon or felt) should be used on all furniture legs. Clean protectors periodically to remove grit that may become embedded and cause scratching. Use NON-RUBBER backed mats at all entrances to avoid discolora � on from asphalt driveways and prevent dirt and grit from being tracked onto your fl oor. Rubber backed mats can discolor your fl oor. Avoid excessive exposure to water being tracked in during periods of inclement weather. Minimize abrasive material and dirt by placing mats (non- rubber backed) on both sides of exterior doors and by using area rugs (non-rubber backed) in high tra ffi c areas. Rearrange furniture and rugs periodically to avoid uneven color and shade changes from light exposure. Use protec � ve mats beneath rolling chairs and keep furniture casters clean. We recommend the use of a non-studded, non- rubber, hard surface mat to protect your fl oor from o ffi ce chairs with casters. Light, rolling furniture should be ou � i � ed with broad surface, non-staining casters that have been engineered for hard surface fl oors. Such casters should be a minimum of 1-inch (2.5 cm) wide and a t least 2-inches (5.1cm) in diameter. Keep pet’s nails trimmed. Remove shoes with cleats, spikes or pointy heels before walking on the fl oor as they could cause inden � ons.
