Although a floor may be walked on after initial curing/hardening of the coating, some precautions are necessary with a newly finished floor until the coating system has fully hardened and this may take several days to several weeks depending on the coating option taken and the weather conditions at the time of application. Use of the floor before the full cure has been realised can result in scuffing and/or scratching. It is recommended that rugs are not laid until after the floor finish has fully hardened. Rugs with rubber backings should not be used as they may stain or otherwise affect the applied coatings. While light furniture can be replaced and used during this period, it should be ensured that furniture protection felt pads are attached to the feet of tables and chairs etc. and furniture such as chairs should be lifted and not slid across the floor.
The following guidelines will help keep your floor in top condition longer:
Style It Flooring does not recommend the use of steam mops on any of their timber or laminate floors.
Style It Flooring has a range of products specifically designed to maintain hard floors. We are more than happy to offer regular maintenance programs to help extend the life of your floor coating.
