Mercier has products specially designed to clean and protect your prefinished floor. Normal maintenance of a prefinished floor is fast and easy. Just follow these two steps.
The best way to protect your wood floors is to vacuum regularly. The vacuum cleaner removes dust and abrasive substances from the surface. Frequency: As often as necessary.
Spray a small quantity of cleaner on your Mercier mop and swab a section of floor in the same direction as the floorboards. Continue until the entire floor is done. Wash mop covers as required. Frequency: Under the warranty, monthly cleaning is a minimum maintenance requirement.
Never use wax, household detergent, or oil-based soap on the floor. These products may discolor and damage the finish and leave a greasy film, making the floor slippery and difficult to maintain afterwards. The greasy film may also make it impossible to apply a restorer coat.
Mixtures of water and vinegar are not recommended for cleaning prefinished flooring, since vinegar has an oxidizing effect on the finish.
