Mannington Hardwood Floor Care Instructions

Mannington Hardwood Floor Care Instructions

You can protect your Mannington Wood Floor by following these easy guidelines.

  • Use rugs at workstations, pivot-points (e.g., stair landings, room entries), and high-traffic areas to reduce wear, especially if you have a large family or indoor pets.
  • Use mats at all exterior doors to keep sand, dirt, grit, grease, and oil outside.
  • Keep pet's nails trimmed and paws clean and free of dirt, gravel, grease, oil, and stains.
  • Place Floor D-fenders protective pads beneath furniture legs and feet to reduce scratches and dents.
  • Use a dolly and protective sheets of plywood when moving heavy objects, furniture, or appliances.
  • Make certain furniture casters are clean and operate properly (a minimum 1" width is recommended.)
  • Remove shoes with spiked or damaged heels before walking on your Mannington Wood floor.
  • Exposure to the sun and its UV rays accelerates the oxidation and aging of wood and fabrics. This causes the stain and/or wood to fade and/or change color. We recommend you rearrange rugs and furniture periodically so the floor ages evenly.


Mannington Hardwood Floor Maintenance

Here are some simple things you can do to keep your Mannington Wood Floor looking like new.

  • Sweep or vacuum regularly, since built-up grit can damage the finish. The vacuum head must be a soft brush or felt type. Be certain the wheels of the vacuum are clean and do not damage the flooring. Do not use a vacuum with a beater bar head.
  • Important: Never wet mop or flood your Mannington wood floor with water or other products. This can severely damage the Mannington wood floor.
  • Remove spills promptly using a soft cloth.
  • The use of Mannington  UltraClean™ is highly recommended.
  • Important: Do not use oil soaps, liquid, or paste wax products or other household cleaners that contain lemon oil, tung oil, or ammonia since the Mannington warranty does not cover damage caused by non-recommended products.
