Armstrong FlooringWith all the available flooring solutions out in the market today, homeowners have a difficult decision in deciding what to install in their own homes. Indoors, the humidity may need to be controlled, or a plumbing leak may be causing excess moisture in the basement, which migrates up into the subfloor and from there into the wood flooring. However, before that can happen the nails or the glue holding the flooring to the subfloor will usually give way, so that the floor bulges upward. Apply Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner or Bruce Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner lightly to the surface and wipe with a sponge mop or a soft cloth.Armstrong Flooring

Use any of the following products (or products similar in nature) on your floor: ammonia based cleaners, acrylic finishes, wax based products, detergents, bleach, polishes and oil soaps, abrasive cleaning soaps or acidic materials such as vinegar. Apply Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner or Bruce Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner to a clean soft cloth.

More stubborn spots may require additional cleaning with mineral spirits, followed by cleaning with Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner or Bruce Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner. If stain remains, rub with a cloth dampened with mineral spirits and follow by cleaning the area with Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner or Bruce Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner. After deposit has been removed, clean entire area with Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner or Bruce Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner.

Apply Armstrong Restore Hardwood Floor Finish or Bruce Fresh Finish or Bruce Fresh Finish Low Gloss when larger areas are reconditioned. Individual planks, strips or parquets that are heavily gouged or damaged can be replaced by a professional flooring installer. If needed, the entire floor can be refurbished by applying one or more coats of Armstrong Restore Hardwood Floor Finish or Bruce Fresh Finish or Bruce Fresh Finish Low Gloss. Remove any existing adhesive on the flooring with Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner and a clean cloth. Wipe up spills or spots with a damp cloth or swivel-head mop with terrycloth cover using Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner.

When the flooring is clean and dry, apply several thin coats of Armstrong Pattern-PlusĀ® Shine with a swivel-head mop with a terrycloth cover per direction on the label. Large areas can be cleaned by misting Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner on the area and wiping until clean and dry with a soft towel or swivel-head mop. Mist the Armstrong Spray Tone on the floor and rub briskly until it has been completely absorbed into the wood. Apply several thin coats of Armstrong Pattern PlusĀ® Shine as necessary to maintain the appearance of the floor.
