Rigid MAINTENANCE

Easy instructions to follow.

Abode has been designed with low maintenance in mind, allowing you to spend more time doing the things you love. A key benefit of Abode flooring is how easy it is to clean, and with little maintenance, you can extend the life of your floor for years to come. The nature of the maintenance will depend on the amount and type of traffic in your home. A typical maintenance program for a standard home would be as follows:

Initial Treatment

Maintain a temperature controlled environment between 18°C – 28°C and do not wash your new floor for at least 24 hours after installation. Sweep with a broom or vacuum to remove any grit and dirt. This will avoid scratching your floor prior to implementing the recommended maintenance schedule.

Weekly Care

Sweep daily or as often as required with a broom or vacuum to remove any grit or dirt. At least twice a month, mop the entire floor with a pH neutral cleaning product. The minimum amount of water/liquid should be used to prevent moisture from penetrating into joins. Check with your Choices Flooring sales consultant which cleaning product is most appropriate for your floor.

Removing Scuff Marks

Scuff marks on surface areas are usually caused by dragging heavy items such as furniture or sliding shoes across the floor. These can be just wiped away with a damp cloth. If you are having difficulties removing scuff marks, add some eucalyptus oil to a damp cloth and wipe scuff marks to remove any residue.
