Daily care for your flooring starts with removing dust.
Vacuum the area to remove dust.
The dust removal attachment makes it easy to clean every nook and cranny.

Wring out the wet rag and wipe the floor.
However, flooring hates water, so be careful not to use too many wet rags.
③ Use of appropriate detergent
If the floor surface becomes dirty, you can wipe it with a mild household detergent.
We also recommend using paint thinner, especially when removing oil stains.
However, to prevent detergent residue, rinse thoroughly, wipe dry, and dry.

Quickle wiper is compatible with flooring.
Effectively removes fine dust and hair.
Wet types and sheets that can be wiped with detergent are also available.

Apply floor wax or floor varnish regularly to protect your flooring and maintain its shine.
Wax should be applied once every 1 to 2 years, and floor varnish should be reapplied as needed.
This protects the floor surface and ensures its long-lasting beauty.
Beautiful flooring can have a long lifespan with proper care and maintenance.
Keep your flooring sparkling with regular maintenance.
We will explain how to repair scratches and dents in flooring.
■ Repairing shallow scratches ■
Shallow scratches on flooring can be repaired discreetly using a pen-type alcohol-based stain repair material.
① Select a colored repair material that matches the color of the scratch. (Choose one that is close to the color of your floor)
② Apply repair material to the scratches and wipe off excess repair material.
③ If the scratch crosses the wood grain, paint with a light color close to the base color and then draw the wood grain for a natural finish.
■ Repairing deep scratches and dents ■
For large scratches and deep dents, crayon-type repair materials or resin-type repair materials are suitable.
① Apply crayon-type repair material to the scratch, smooth it out, and remove excess repair material.
② If the scratch crosses the wood grain, paint it with a light color and then paint the wood grain with a slightly darker color to create a natural finish.
③ When using a resin type repair material, heat the resin and pour it into the repaired area and smooth it out.
By properly implementing these repair methods, you can maintain the beauty of your flooring and achieve a long lifespan.
With regular maintenance and repair work, you can enjoy your flooring for a long time.
Generally speaking, flooring is said to have a lifespan of 10 years or more, but its lifespan is greatly affected by daily usage and maintenance.
If it does not get clean even after proper maintenance, we recommend that you consider replacing it and renovating it.
