The following are things that you SHOULD NOT
do when caring for cork board flooring:
- Never allow moisture or any types of liquids to lie for extended periods of time on the floor - it will eventually cause staining
- Never wet mop your floor
- Never clean the floor with chemicals or water
- Never use abrasive soaps, oils, waxes, or ammonia-based cleaners on the floor
- Never use mats with rubber backings since it could trap moisture between the mat itself and the flooring
Below is a list of things you should be doing once a week, twice a year, and every 5-7 years to care for your floor.
Use a damp mop with a tiny amount of diluted vinegar to wipe down the surface of the floor.
Twice a Year
Give the floor a good scrub down using a small amount of Murphy Oil Soap which can be purchased at your local hardware store.
Every 5-7 Years
Get the floor properly re-furbished by a professional who will use a polyurethane material to finish the surface. This is necessary in homes with pets, or in locations that have a lot of foot traffic.
