Every wooden floor benefits from regular maintenance, we can't say it often enough. You've spent a decent sum of money on your floor covering you want to safeguard your investment, and with the modern maintenance products it is easier than ever!
What is regular maintenance?
If you want, of if it is needed due to middle to heavy daily traffic (from walking in from your garden or if you have pets) you can clean your floor every fortnight - with an appropriate cleaning product, washing up liquid does more harm than good! - to remove muddy footprints or other spillages.
Do this with a well wrong-out cloth, wood likes water as long it is a tree, after that it really doesn't!
Apply a polish every 4 - 5 months, after you've cleaned your floor. So, do not apply a polish every time you clean your floor. Two or three times a year is enough to keep your wooden floor healthy, beautiful and protective against dirt and drips. Polishing after every single cleaning is too often, polish will build up and your floor can become sticky and even gather dust and dirt in the not absorbed layer of polish.
For cleaning we highly recommend the eco-friendly Wash-Care by Saicos, which - diluted - gives you enough cleaning product to cover 1000 sq meters!
Also, if you are into real polishing your waxed or oiled floor once in a while, you can safely use Aunt Polly's Polishing Wax and have your house smell of old-fashion polishing.
