1. Floor Mats & Furniture Felt

To prevent scratching and scuffing of your floor, place furniture pads on the bottom of all heavy items and objects that are moved frequently, eg chairs and tables. Shoes carry sand, grit and small stones, which will abrade the floor surface in the same way that sandpaper does. Place mats at entrances and where possible place a mat on the inside as well as the outside. Use runners and rugs in high traffice area's.

2. Direct Sunlight

Like any other quality furnishing or floor covering in your home, direct sunlight will cause discolouring over time. To avoid fading and discolouring, filter direct light with curtains or blinds. Remember that area's of floor covered with rugs etc will retain their original colour. Therefore once rugs are removed, or their position changed, variations in colour will be visible, but this variation will fade over time.

3. Cleaning

Frequency of cleaning depends on traffic levels. 
Daily/ Weekly:
Use an anti-static mop to collect dust or dirt on a regular basis.
dsc03488m Weekly/ Monthly:

Using products from a complete cleaning kit - spray the solution onto the specialised mop head and mop evenly over the     floor.
