Caring for Your Wood Floors
with Sole Flooring

Wood flooring care and maintenance 

Wood flooring can add a warm and inviting touch to any home, but it's important to remember that it requires proper care and maintenance to keep it looking its best. Regular cleaning and maintenance can help prevent damage from spills, scratches, and other types of wear and tear. It's also important to protect your wood flooring from exposure to direct sunlight, which can cause fading and discoloration over time.

Below we have our care and maintenance guidelines for the various finishes that wood flooring can come with. 

Hardwax oiled and natural oiled wood floors -

Hardwax oiled wood floors are a popular choice for homeowners who want a natural-looking finish that's easy to maintain.

To keep your hardwax oiled wood floors looking their best, it's important to follow a few simple maintenance guidelines.


First, you should sweep or vacuum your floors regularly to remove dirt and debris. Avoid using a wet mop, as excess water can penetrate the finish and cause damage. Instead, use a damp microfiber mop or cloth with wood flooring soap such as bona or Rubio monocot to clean up spills and stains as soon as possible.


It's also a good idea to periodically refresh the finish on your hardwax oiled wood floors. This can be done by applying a thin coat of hardwax maintenance oil using a clean, lint-free cloth. Be sure to work in small sections, and buff the surface with a dry cloth after applying the oil.

If your hardwax oiled wood floors have scratches or other types of damage, you can use a touch-up kit or wax stick to fill in the damaged area. Be sure to choose a product that matches the color of your flooring for the best results.

By following these simple maintenance tips, you can help keep your hardwax oiled wood floors looking beautiful and in top condition for many years to come.

Varnish / Lacquered wood flooring

Maintaining varnished wood floors is an essential part of keeping them looking beautiful and prolonging their lifespan. The first step in maintaining varnished wood floors is to keep them clean and free of debris. Regular sweeping and vacuuming will help prevent dirt and grit from scratching the varnish.

When cleaning varnished wood floors, it's important to use the right products. Harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners can damage the varnish, so it's best to stick to a gentle cleaner specifically designed for wood floors. It's also important to avoid using too much water, as excessive moisture can cause the wood to warp or cup.

In addition to regular cleaning, it's a good idea to have your varnished wood floors refinished periodically. Over time, the varnish can become scratched or worn, leaving your floors looking dull and faded. Refinishing your floors can help restore their shine and protect them from further damage.

Finally, it's important to protect your varnished wood floors from direct sunlight. UV rays can cause the varnish to fade or discolor, so it's a good idea to use curtains or blinds to block out the sun during the brightest parts of the day.

By following these tips for maintaining varnished wood floors, you can help keep your floors looking beautiful for many years to come.
