What is there left to do for YOU? When it comes to cleaning lacquered wood you need to protect your new wooden floor from any dirt, by using doormats on all external entrances to your house.
Sand and grit under your feet work like sandpaper and will damage the lacquer finish of your wooden floor. Water dripping from shoes can make your wooden floor slippery and cause damage the lacquered wood surface.
Put Felt Protectors under chairs and furniture to prevent your wooden floor from scratches. Adapt castors of your swivel chair according to your floor (hard castors for soft floors such as carpets, and soft rubber castors for hard floors such as parquet) and put a floor protector under your desk.
We sell these products at First Floors if you require. All wooden floors need some maintaining to keep their beauty long lasting.
Regularly vacuum or sweep your wooden floor first to collect rough dirt and dust. Use soft fabrics when sweep or a felt or soft brush-head attachment when vacuum. Use a soft mop or cloth and two buckets of hand-warm water, one with plain water and one with cleaner/lacquered wood care. Rinse the mop in the water bucket and use cleaner mix for mopping, as dirty water can leave an unsightly residue on the surface.
For cleaning a normal mop is sufficient and no special devices are needed. Wipe your floor with a damp and well wrung-out mop or cloth and avoid heavy mopping. Too much moisture can damage the lacquer surface. Your floor should dry within only a few minutes.
Any spillages should be swept up immediately as that can cause stains on your floor. Steam cleaners are not to be used, due to the amount of moisture which can cause damage to the lacquer surface and the floor to expand/shrink leaving cracks between the boards.
