A Guide to Maintaining Our Flooring Products - from Runners to Karndean Flooring in Maidstone

As a flooring company committed to quality, and helping Maidstone residents elevate their properties with elegant and sought after products, we understand that investing in exquisite flooring is a significant decision. To ensure your flooring products continue to look their very best and enjoy a long lifespan, proper maintenance is crucial. That’s why on this page, Sunniva by BR Flooring has looked to focus on the maintenance of Amtico flooring, Karndean flooring, wood flooring, Sisal carpets, and Roger Oates runners. By following these maintenance tips, you can extend the lifespan of your flooring, keeping it pristine for years to come.

Amtico Flooring & Karndean Flooring

Both Amtico flooring and Karndean flooring is renowned for being a luxury vinyl tile that effortlessly emulates the look of natural materials; this is one of the reasons so many Maidstone residents call in Sunniva to fit it, having found a reputable flooring company recognised as an approved installer for both manufacturers. To maintain the luster of these exquisite floors, follow these guidelines:

  • Regular Sweeping and Mopping - Daily sweeping or vacuuming with a soft brush attachment is recommended for both Amtico flooring and Karndean flooring products, removing loose dirt and debris. For mopping, use a pH-neutral cleaner specifically designed for vinyl flooring, avoiding excessive water.
  • Preventive Measures - Our flooring company also urges its Maidstone clients to use doormats at entrances to trap dirt and prevent it from being tracked onto the flooring. Use protective pads on furniture legs to avoid scratching or denting the surface.
  • Stain Removal - Act quickly to remove spills or stains using a damp cloth and a mild vinyl floor cleaner. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or excessive scrubbing, as they may damage the protective wear layer.

Wood Flooring

Wood flooring exudes timeless elegance and warmth; but before you task a flooring company with installing it in your Maidstone property, it’s important to consider the specific care required to retain its natural beauty. Here are some maintenance tips for wood flooring:

  • Regular Cleaning - Use a soft-bristle broom or microfiber mop to sweep away dust and debris regularly. Avoid using excessive water or wet mopping, as it can cause warping or cupping of the wood.
  • Routine Maintenance - Every few months, apply a recommended wood floor cleaner to maintain the floor's sheen and protect its finish. Ensure that the cleaner is suitable for the specific type of wood flooring you have.
  • Protection from Scratches - Place protective felt pads under furniture legs and use area rugs or mats in high-traffic areas. Trim pets' nails regularly to minimise scratches.

Sisal Carpets

An increasingly popular selection our Maidstone flooring company supplies and fits are sisal carpets. These are natural fiber floor coverings that lend a touch of organic beauty to any space. Here's how to maintain their charm:

  • Vacuuming - Regular vacuuming is essential to prevent the buildup of dirt and debris. Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment, gently moving in the direction of the fibers to avoid unraveling or damaging the carpet.
  • Stain Removal - Blot spills immediately with a clean, dry cloth or paper towel. Avoid rubbing, as it may spread the stain. For more stubborn stains, use a mild carpet cleaner specifically formulated for natural fibers.
  • Professional Cleaning - Periodically, consider professional deep cleaning to remove deep-seated dirt and revitalise the carpet's appearance. Consult the manufacturer's guidelines for recommendations on cleaning frequency.

Roger Oates Runners

While we may be known as the Maidstone area’s flooring company of choice for the supply and fitting of Roger Oates runners, it’s not just favoritism when we say they epitomise refined luxury and add an element of sophistication to staircases and hallways. To preserve their distinctive beauty, follow these maintenance tips:

  • Regular Vacuuming - Vacuum the runners regularly with a brush attachment to remove dust and dirt. Pay attention to the edges and corners where debris tends to accumulate.
  • Spot Cleaning - Attend to spills immediately by blotting with a clean, damp cloth. For stains, use a mild carpet cleaner suitable for wool fibers, carefully following the product instructions.
  • Rotating the Runner - To prevent uneven wear, rotate the runner periodically, especially in high-traffic areas. This distributes the footfall and extends the lifespan of the runner.

Maintaining premium flooring products such as Amtico flooring, Karndean flooring, wood flooring, Sisal carpets, and Roger Oates runners requires a combination of regular care and attention. By following these maintenance guidelines, you can preserve the beauty and longevity of your investment.

Remember, when in doubt, always refer to the manufacturer's recommendations for specific maintenance instructions. With proper care, your premium flooring will continue to grace your Maidstone home with elegance and charm for many years to come.
