Cleaning lacquered and oiled wood floors

A wood floor surface can easily be damaged by sand and other loose dirt. Install mats that collect dirt and sand at entrances. Avoid using water on wood and parquet floors. Use a soft attachment to vacuum up loose dirt.

If necessary, you can also clean the floor with a damp mop and a small amount of neutral cleaning agent. Remove stains before they become ingrained on the lacquer or oil surfaces. Where necessary, dry with a cloth moistened with clean, lukewarm water.

Repairing scratches

A heavily scratched or dented parquet floor can be sanded lightly and lacquer added, or the old lacquer layer can be sanded off and a new one applied – this should be done by a professional!

If an old floor has been lacquered with so-called marine varnish, remove it completely before re-lacquering.

In addition to cleaning, an oiled wood floor can be maintained with Kiilto Parquet Care Oil. Use care oil on worn floors that have lost their polish.
