Care

In order to maximise its longevity and preserve its beauty, it’s important to take good care of your Tongue n Groove timber.

REGULAR CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

  • Regular sweeping will prevent dirt and grit from wearing and scratching your floor.
  • Felt feet and protective pads should be used on all furniture.
  • Rugs and hall runners provide additional protection, particularly in heavy traffic areas.

GROUND-IN DIRT

  • Use a purpose-specific timber floor cleaner and damp-mop the affected area. Please ensure to wring the mop to avoid over-wetting the floor. Over-wetting may alter the moisture balance of your Tongue n Groove timber product, which can lead to expansion and warping.
  • Please note, do not use a general household cleaner, which may damage the surface seal.

ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE

  • Excessive exposure to sunlight and heat may cause fading and discolouration. Use rugs, blinds and curtains to limit exposure and prevent damage.
  • Air conditioning and extreme fluctuations in temperature and humidity can cause problems such as shrinking and cracking. A humidifier may help combat these problems. Please contact one of our consultants at sales@tonguengrooveflooring.com.au for further information.

EXCESSIVE SCRATCHING AND DENTING

  • Unlike other engineered timber products, Tongue n Groove timber can be refinished if it becomes excessively damaged. For best results, we recommend any sanding and polishing should be carried out by a qualified trades person.
