Care and Maintenance :It should be realized that wood is natural product with all its own natural variation of grains, colors and characteristics, which are perfectly normal with any wood product.
Wood is also a living material, which reacts to changes of climate and surroundings. During summer's high humidity, the wood absorbs moisture and expands. In winter, when the surrounding is heated, humidity drops, the wood releases its humidity, and it shrinks and contracts.
Regular cleaning should be done, either by vacuum cleaner or a smooth broom, to remove any sand or dirt to avoid abrasion and scratches.
The surface could also be cleaned by mop slightly dampened with an approved wood flooring cleaner to remove stain, grease, shoe-tracks etc. Take extra care with high-heeled shoes. Put some felt like pads under any furniture bases, chair-legs etc. prevent scratches.
