Maintenance & Repair Questions
Sweep regularly, and damp mop when needed using a no-was vinyl cleaner.
Wet mops are fine, but we do not recommend steam mops. Steam mops may harm the flooring after extended use.
Do not use oils or refinishers, they will build up and create a high maintenance floor.
Sweep regularly, use walk off mats, and use felt protectors on all furniture and chair legs.
Any home improvement store should have scratch repair markers/pen available for purchase.
