How to Maintain Engineered Wood Flooring?

Engineered wood flooring is one of the most popular floors at present, and its performance is better than luxury solid wood flooring. The following contents introduce the methods of cleaning and maintaining engineered wood flooring.

Temperature and Humidity

In the maintenance of luxury engineered wood flooring, the temperature and humidity in the room is very important, because wood is a natural material, it is sensitive to temperature and humidity. After the installation of engineered wood flooring, the humidity in the room should be kept between 40% and 65% as far as possible.

In addition, the temperature in the room should be maintained between 16 ℃ and 28 ℃. In this temperature range, the human body can also feel very comfortable. If you need to leave home for a period of time, it is recommended that you set the temperature of the heating or air conditioning in the room to 16 ℃, which can avoid excessive expansion of engineered wood flooring.


Because engineered wood flooring is made of wood, and the hardness of wood is not high, so it is easy to be scratched. Therefore, you need to take some measures to protect the red oak engineered wood flooring. For example, you can install cushions under the support feet of furniture to avoid scratching the floor. In addition, you also need to check whether there are sharp objects on the soles, do not wear high-heeled shoes to step on the engineered wood flooring, and regularly oil the engineered wood flooring.

If there are some slight scratches on the surface of your light engineered wood flooring, you can repair these scratches by oiling the flooring. Before oiling, sandpaper is usually used to polish off the original oil on the engineered wood flooring. If you want to install engineered wood flooring in the warehouse, you'd better coat them with pressure resistant oil. This kind of oil is stronger after drying and can protect the waterproof engineered wood flooring from being scratched by the items in the warehouse.

How to Clean Engineered Wood Flooring

The surface of engineered wood flooring is smooth, so it is easier to clean than carpet. But you need to use the right tools to clean the engineered wood flooring to avoid damage to your flooring.

For regular cleaning, you only need to use a brush to clean the dust on the surface of the engineered wood flooring. But to improve the cleaning effect, you can also use detergent to clean your engineered hardwood flooring. It should be noted that if there is a layer of oil on the engineered timber flooring, you need to choose a detergent that is compatible with oil to avoid damaging the oil layer.

As time goes on, the oil layer on the solid wood flooring will gradually disappear. Therefore, you need to oil the oak hardwood flooring every 6 to 24 months. Oil can protect wood flooring from wear and tear, and prevent wood flooring from rotting. In addition, the oil can also prevent wood floor drying and cracking.
