Caring for RevWood, SolidWood, TecWood
Your new Mohawk SolidWood and TecWood can maintain their strength and beauty for years, while your RevWood flooring pairs the beauty of natural wood with easy, carefree maintenance. You’ll get years of beautiful performance from your wood floors with a little preparation and know-how.
Use a dust mop, soft bristle broom or a vacuum cleaner with suction only (no beater bar or with the beater bar disengaged) to remove dust, dirt and loose particulate on a regular basis. For slightly damp cleaning, spray Mohawk’s FloorCare Essentials SolidWood, TecWood & RevWood Cleaner onto a cotton, terrycloth, or microfiber mop. Avoid wet-mop cleaning with water or liquid cleaners.
Use protective window coverings to block fade-causing UV rays and excessive heat from direct sunlight, and rearrange rugs and furniture periodically to help your floor age evenly. During inclement weather, avoid exposing your flooring to water as much as possible.
SolidWood and TecWood
Vacuum or sweep your floor regularly with a soft-bristled attachment or broom, especially in high-traffic areas. This prevents gritty dirt and particle buildup that can scratch the wood’s surface. Don’t use vacuums with a beater bar or power rotary brush head.
Use protective window coverings to block fade-causing UV rays and excessive heat from direct sunlight. Most wood types will gradually age when not covered, so it’s a good idea to rearrange rugs and furniture periodically to help it age evenly.
Invest in high-quality floor mats and protective pads under heavy furniture for an extra layer of protection on your SolidWood, TecWood and RevWood floors. Place floor mats at entrances and exits—they collect and trap corrosive substances that can be tracked in, like dirt, sand, oil, grit, asphalt, or even driveway sealer. Placing mats in high-traffic areas—in front of vanities, kitchen sinks, and stoves—is an effective way to reduce wear.
