HOW TO CARE FOR BRAZILIAN HARDWOOD FLOORS

With Brazilian hardwood floors becoming so popular in the prestigious condos of Hoboken, I would like to offer some tips on how to maintain the beauty of these products. 

Fill a wash tub or bucket with 4 inches of warm water and then add approximately 10% Windex. Remember to never use vinegar, or wax on this type of floor. Take a cotton hand towel and submerge it. Ring it out so the water does not drip when you hold it up. Put the towel flat on the floor.  With a lightweight push broom in the middle of the towel, flip the front portion on the towel over the broom to hold it in place. Walk the floor, slowly behind the wet cleaning path, moving the broom head to a clean area of the towel and then flipping the towel over to the clean side. Re-rinse the towel out 2 or 3 times and repeat this process until all the dirt is gone.

Do this monthly. Vacuum daily with a vacuum head that has felt bumpers and wipe up sticky spills immediately with Windex and a wet paper towel.

Don’t forget to place stick-on felt glides on every thing that touches the floor. Table legs, chairs, bottom of trash cans, etc. To move furniture around, you can cut carpet into 4 x 4 inch pieces and put them under legs. Slide the furniture with carpet side face down.

By keeping all of this in mind will help you enjoy the beauty of your floors for a lifetime.
