- Always apply felt pads under any furniture or chair legs to prevent scratches and to ease movement. Keep pads clean at all times and regularly check and replace as necessary.
- Protect the floor when moving heavy furniture or large appliances. Place on mat and slide smoothly over floor.
- Use rugs in high wear areas i.e. in heavily traveled spots and pivot points such as room entries and stair landings.
- Never flood or wet-mop the floor with water or any other liquid products. Severe damage may occur that void the warranty.
