In order to protect your investment Feather Lodge has some simple care tips to help you maintain your Feather Lodge products.
We suggest using a floor cleaner and microfiber mop to clean your vinyl floors. This daily clean helps to remove dust and debris buildup that can develop over time. Avoid using a traditional mop and bucket since it’s easy to spread excess water on the luxury vinyl flooring. Excess liquids can get into the seams and edges of the floor and may warp vinyl planks, if not cleaned immediately.
Bona © Stone, Tile and Laminate Cleaner is our suggested cleaner, Bona also sells a premium spray mop which combines the cleaner in a convenient cartridge along with the Bona Microfiber cleaning pad.
To keep a well maintained floor, you’ll need to do a more thorough cleaning about once a week. First, we suggest to vacuum or dry mop the floor to remove dust, hair and dirt. Then you’re ready to move on to a wet mop like the Bona Mop, and a cleaning solution.
Following this simple daily/weekly routine is all you need to keep luxury vinyl flooring looking its best and staying protected. Its durable nature lends itself to easy cleaning and peace of mind knowing that your floors will always look great. To further protect floors, use felt pads on furniture bases/legs and be sure to never drag heavy objects along your floors.
A dry Microfiber Mop or non-beater bar vacuuming is an effective daily cleaning method to use for our luxury vinyl floors. To remove any set in dirt, you can use a vinyl cleaner diluted microfiber mop.
Bona © Stone, Tile and Laminate Cleaner is our suggested cleaning product, for our Vinyl flooring. The Swiffer™ dry mop is also a great daily cleaning tool to assist in keeping a clean floor.
Make sure to keep blinds closed during peak hours of sunlight as vinyl flooring tiles may lift or warp after constant exposure to high UV light.
All of our vinyl flooring is waterproof. Even though the flooring is waterproof, it is still important to clean spills immediately to avoid moisture from impregnating the seams and potentially seeping below to subfloor.
Use non-staining walk off mats at entrances to prevent dirt and grit from being tracked onto floor. A helpful hint if using a rubber backed mat make sure that the rubber is non-staining and safe to use on vinyl surfaces.
Heavy furniture or appliances should be equipped with nonstaining vinyl approved floor protectors.
New cabinets for your kitchen or bath are a big investment and we want you to keep them looking good as new. Here are some tips and tricks you can do to maintain their beautiful look.
Just like any other type of furniture, the kitchen and bath cabinetry should be dusted regularly to remove any dust particles that have accumulated. When dusting, we recommend using a wood furniture cleaner-moistened or damp microfiber cloth to clean cabinetry.
When cleaning wipe going with the grain of the wood. Wiping against the grain could cause scratches if the dust contains grit. Any residues caused from cooking oils or smoke should be wiped up with a damp cloth and a small amount of furniture cleaner as soon as possible.
A non-abrasive cabinet cleaner and a microfiber cloth are suggested to keep cabinets looking factory finish nice. We suggest to first spay cleaner onto microfiber and then apply cleaner misted microfiber towel to cabinet surface to wipe away dust, dirt, and grime.
It is important to clean spills immediately to avoid moisture from staining cabinet surface. It is also important to make sure to clean up all food spills immediately, as many food items can stain if not properly and expediently cleaned.
Make sure the surface of the area you are installing your cabinetry is clean and free of dust and debris. We suggest to paint the walls you are applying cabinetry before you install cabinets. If you need to paint after cabinets are installed, make sure to cover cabinetry to avoid getting paint on the factory finish.
