Is your floor in need of some care and attention? Follow our tips and these few simple steps to help care for your Russwood floor and keep it looking at it’s best.

  • Be sure to wipe away any water spills immediately and never allow water, moisture spills or cleaning products to remain on the floor for any length of time.
  • For all Russwood floors which have been finished with Osmo Polyx® Oil, we recommend the use of selected products to maintain the quality of the hardwax oil finish. Harsh chemical cleaners or washing up liquids should not be used. If it removes oil from your pots and pans it will dull your floors’ oiled surface. To clean your floor, follow the simple routine demonstrated in our maintenance video, using Osmo products especially created to protect and care for your flooring.
  • Do not use steam cleaners! High pressure steam can degrade the oiled finish. Sweep or vacuum away dust and dirt on a daily basis and clean the floor using a microfibre mop and Osmo Wash and Care, both of which can be purchased from our on-line shop.
  • Use mats at entrances to trap any dirt and avoid water collecting on the surface of your flooring and seeping down in between boards.
  • Is it time to replace your floor protectors? Floor protectors are an effective and economical way to protect your floor from scratches from moveable furniture.
  • If your floor has been down for a year or more and looks as though it needs refreshing, it may require a coat of Osmo Polyx® Oil. Osmo Polyx® Oils are available in a range of sheen levels from matt to glossy and can be applied easily with a brush, roller or cloth. The trick here is to apply the oil as thinly as possible to avoid excess build up on the surface.
