Europlank-flooring is treated with a UV-cured lacquer, which gives it a smooth, easy to clean surface. With any wood product it is wise to limit the amount of water that is used and we recommend regular vacuuming to control dust and prevent particles of grit from being walked into the surface. Periodically the floor can be cleaned with a wellwrung mop. Use a neutral detergent, maximum pH 8. Please ensure that any water that is applied becomes dry within one minute. A spillage will not mark your floor if you wipe it up immediately.
Keep a door mat both outside and inside entrance doors, this will remove dirt and gravel before it is walked in, which will greatly reduce the wear on your floor. Furniture legs should be fitted with felt pads to avoid unnecessary marks and scratches on the floor, use castor cups to protect the floor from castor damage. After the floor has been in use for a few years, you can easily revitalise it with an additional coat of lacquer. Mop up any spills; never allow water or other liquids to lie on the floor.
If the floor has been subjected to considerable wear, it can be renovated by machine sanding and re-lacquering. Your LM floor has a thick top layer, so they are able to withstand being sanded and re-lacquered. Removal of stains If you have a stain on the floor, you can try to remove it with a mild detergent (without ammonia) diluted in lukewarm water. If this does not work, please refer to your flooring supplier for further assistance.
