Keeping Legno Bastone hardwood flooring in perfect condition for a long time is the wish of every owner. There are several measures to be taken to prevent Legno Bastone flooring from any kind of damage.
First of all, it is necessary to have a good doormat at the entrance so that it will prevent dirt and sand from grounding into the floor. It is also to the owner’s benefit to have protective felts under the table and chair legs.
Removing the water splits from the floor at the soonest possible time will ensure no liquid penetrates the floor base. Also, it is important to make sure that all the plants on the floor are on a waterproof tray.
Daily vacuuming and sweeping will also do good to Legno Bastone flooring since that will cut down the amount of ground grit on the floor each day. In case of water moping, ensure not leaving standing water for air dry.
There are specific Wash & Care products made just for Legno Bastone floorings. All the instructions for weekly care are attached to the products.
It is not recommended to scrub the floor with a pad or an abrasive brush in order to avoid surface damage. High traffic areas need more intensive and frequent washing.
The floor can be refinished yearly with Legno Bastone Liquid Wax Cleaner or Legno Bastone Maintenance Oil.
As for the humidity in the house, it is believed to be maintained between 40-60% for the ideal conditions. That will ensure that the floor has as little movement as possible and remain stable. In case of humidity above 60%, the floor may absorb moisture right from the air. And on the contrary, when the humidity is below 40%, the hardwood flooring will reduce in moisture and shrink to the planks.
