Maintaining Timber Floors In Australia

The maintaining timber floor finishes are often overlooked. The following maintenance guidelines should be observed with any timber floor.

  • First, clean the floor regularly to prevent the build-up of dirt and grit on the surface. Clean more frequently in high traffic areas.
  • Then, ave mats both inside and outside external doors to trap grit and remove moisture from shoes.
  • After that, remove spills immediately and spot-clean the affected area using a floor cleaner and a soft cloth.
  • Consider having rugs in high traffic areas. These can add to the look of the room also reduce localized wear on the floor. Rugs should allow the floor to ‘breath’.
  • Along with that, install timber floor guards on the base of furniture legs.
  • Apart from this, avoid indentations in the floor. Common causes include stiletto heels and pet claws. Shoe heels should be kept in good repair and pet claws trimmed regularly.
  • At this time, be aware that allowing the floor finish to wear too far may mean the floor has to be sanded back to bare timber and re-finished. It is best to renew the surface by over-coating before this point is reached to avoid unnecessary cost and inconvenience.
  • Finally, in a commercial situation, the use of a buffing machine with a tan pad should be considered in the maintenance program.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Peter Stephenson

My commitment to my clients is to provide quality and a high standard of finish. The polished floor is generally the last task in a renovation but it is the first thing people see at completion, also a few years down the track. Acclaimed Floor Sanding Services has been my preferred finishers for the past 7 years because I always get the same result - a happy client.

Many thanks again for your fantastic service last week at Short Street. The timber floor looks as good (if not better!) than when it was new, and we are very grateful to you for fitting us in at such short notice. We would not hesitate to recommend your company to friends and relatives and wish you well in the future.

Benefits Of Maintaining Timber Floors


Adds Value & Style To Your Home

Primarily, timber floors are a great way to add value and style to your home. As well as offering a lot of styles, species and colours a timber floor will always look good both in contemporary and traditional interior design.



In addition, timber is natural and when kept clean it avoids stain/retaining odours/harbouring dust mites or allergens, which promote asthma and other respiratory problems (unlike carpet)



Lastly, timber floors are eco-friendly, when renewable or recycled timber is used. Finishing your floors with non-toxic coatings offers even more benefits to you and your family.
