Caring for Your Floors

 
 
 

Floor care

 
Hardwood (Sealed): Keep floors free of dirt and debris that can scratch some finishes. Pet nails should be kept clipped and shoe heels kept in good repair. Do not wash newly finished or re-coated hardwood for at least 10 days. With most finishes, you should avoid products with wax or soap in them (i.e. Murphy’s Oil Soap). Wet-mopping is discouraged, and we suggest using as little water as possible when mopping. Do NOT steam mop hardwood floors.

Carpeting: Carpets should be vacuumed as often as need be to keep them free of dirt and debris. We also encourage the use of hot water extraction carpet cleaners once a year in high traffic areas. Some carpets require maintenance schedules to keep warranties. All carpet cleaners should be tested in an inconspicuous place before being applied to ANY spot.

LVT & Vinyl: Maybe the easiest floor to maintain, vinyl will look great for a long time if kept swept and clean. You can wet-mop with many products, however, we discourage waxy or oily cleaners

Laminate: As with other products, you should not use cleaners with wax or soap in them. Wet-mopping is discouraged, and we suggest using as little water as possible when mopping. Keeping the floor free of dirt and debris will also help with the life of the floor.

Ceramic: Tiles should be swept and cleaned regularly. Please avoid using bleaches around grout lines. You may wet-mop, but do not use waxy or oily products.
 
 

Q. What should I expect during my project?

 
We get asked about cleaning products all the time. While cleaners that are not specifically listed below cannot be endorsed by Champion Floor Company, it does not automatically mean you cannot use unmentioned products. It simply means we cannot confirm their compatibility with our products.
