Care and Maintenance

Lacquered, Hardened Oil, UV Oiled, and Oilwood Traffic finishes:

Care System 1

Please check that a Ted Todd Floor Care System 1 kit has been ordered and delivered.

It is firstly very important to keep the floor regularly swept or vacuumed to remove dust and debris from the floor, as this can be abrasive on the finish and will dramatically reduce the life of your floor.

For normal residential / light contract use:

Regularly clean your floor using Floor Care Easy Clean. This will clean and nourish your floor.

Over a period of time your floor may start to look tired or dull, at this stage apply a coat of Floor Care Polish after a clean with Floor Care Easy Clean.

For contract use or areas that require more protection:

Immediately after installation of the floor, clean with Floor Care Easy Clean and apply a coat of Floor Care Intensive Maintenance Polish.

You can reapply Floor Care Intensive Maintenance Polish after cleaning with Floor Care Easy Clean when your floor looks tired or dull.

Over time, residue from the Floor Care Intensive Maintenance Polish will build up on your floor. Remove the residue with Floor Care Polish Remover and re-apply a fresh coat of Floor Care Intensive Maintenance Polish for a fresh start.

You should also note that you should NOT wait until the floor is worn down to raw wood before you re-lacquer. In high wear areas it is advisable to re-coat before this happens as you will only need to gently abrade the existing lacquer and NOT remove all of it before additional coats of lacquer are applied.

Regular maintenance will prolong the life of the finish on your floor. Please see data sheets for all products prior to use.

Natural Oil, Hardwax Oil and Restoration Oil finishes:

Care System 2

Please check that the correct Ted Todd Care System 2 kit has been ordered and delivered.

It is firstly very important to keep the floor swept or vacuumed to remove dust and debris from the floor, as this can be abrasive on the finish and will dramatically reduce the life of your floor.

Regular cleaning with Floor Care Soft Clean will clean and nourish your floor.

If your floor is heavily soiled clean with Floor Care Intensive Clean to remove engrained dirt.

To refresh a worn or dry looking oiled floor after cleaning with Floor Care Intensive Clean use Floor Care Oil Replenish maintenance oil to restore the finish and bring life back to your floor. This is very easy to apply with either a lint free cloth, roller or paint brush.

Regular maintenance will prolong the life of the finish on your floor.
