Introduction to the Maintenance of Varnished Floors

This article is your comprehensive guide to effectively maintaining your varnished floors.

Why Maintain Your Varnished Floor?

Varnish provides robust protection and an aesthetic finish to your floors. However, over time, daily foot traffic and environmental factors can affect its appearance and durability. Regular maintenance is therefore crucial to preserve its protective and aesthetic qualities.

Key Steps in Maintenance

  1. Daily Cleaning:

    • Use a soft-bristle broom or vacuum to remove dust and debris.
    • Avoid excessive use of water. If necessary, use a lightly damp mop.
  2. Weekly Cleaning:

    • Use specific cleaning products for varnished floors, available at Plancher Deluxe or specialty stores.
    • Avoid abrasive cleaners that can damage the varnish.
  3. Annual Treatment:

    • Inspect the floor for any scratches or worn areas.
    • Apply a floor refreshment product, if necessary, to restore the shine.

Preventing Damage

  • Place mats at entrances to reduce abrasion.
  • Use pads under furniture legs to prevent scratches.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight which can discolor the varnish.
