Prevention is better than cure?

The maintenance of your Di Legno floor starts at the door outside. Good doormats will already keep 80% of the dirt off and prevent sand from being ground in. Clean your floor regularly with a vacuum with a soft brush, mop or soft broom. Dirt particles work like sandpaper and will damage the protective surface in that way.

Prevention is better than cure?

The maintenance of your Di Legno floor starts at the door outside with Natural Soap Di Legno. Good doormats will already keep 80% of the dirt off and prevent sand from being ground in. Clean your floor regularly with a vacuum with a soft brush, mop or soft broom. Dirt particles work like sandpaper and will damage the protective surface in that way.

Useful tips to prevent dirt and damage

  • Put protective felts under chair and table legs. We don’t recommend rubber because it makes streaks.
  • Preferably use Di Legno maintenance products and avoid products that leave a fatty film.
  • Remove split liquids immediately.
  • Never put plants directly on the floor, always in a waterproof tray or dish.
  • Do not let water run over the floor and remove liquids immediately.
  • Avoid excessive use of water when cleaning the floor.
  • Do not leave any wet objects on the floor. After a while liquids can seep through the protective oil or polished wax lawyer and cause rings in the wood.
  • Avoid contact with corrosive or chemical products.

Advice for installation on underfloor heating
You can straightaway start using your underfloor heating after installing your Di Legno floor, but it is best to only raise the temperature in successive steps of 2°C per day.

Tips for the temperature and level of humidity
It is best to keep the room temperature between 15°C and 25°C and to avoid temperature fluctuations. We would like to point out that the humidity of the air should always be between 50% and 65%. Experience has shown that central heating systems often fail to reach this norm in the winter. An air humidifier and plants may correct this problem. You can always check the humidity of the air and adjust it as required by installing a simple hygrometer.

How often should you clean your floor?

The frequency of cleaning a Di Legno floor depends on how intensively you use it. It is best to routinely clean your floor once a day with a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush, mop or soft broom.

Regular maintenance of polished Di Legno floors

  • Equipment
    Floor cloth, mop or cloth, Di Legno soap.
  • Di Legno soap 
    This water-based product is a pH-neutral maintenance and cleaning agent in one. It helps your floor to be more resistant to damp and stains.
  • Instructions
    Wait at least 14 days after applying the last layer polishing wax on installation or cleaning maintenance before using the Di Legno soap. Add approx. 200 – 300ml soap to 10 litres of water and then clean the floor with this with a floor cloth, mop or cloth. Never use too much water and remove the excess water immediately.
  • Drying time
    Approx. 30 – 45 minutes.
  • Tip for polished floors
    The use of water must especially be kept to a minimum on polished floors because the protective layer will be gradually removed from it and may lead to the floor becoming dull and mat. To restore its attractive look, you may slightly polish up your Di Legno floor after drying. As an extra care the original polish used may be applied using a polishing block or machine with a white pad.
  • Tip for using impregnated cloths
    We advise against using chemically impregnated cloths (e.g. Swiffer) because they can damage the protective layer. Non-impregnated cloths may be used however.

Cleaning maintenance of polished Di Legno floors

If your Di Legno floor looks grey and fatty and built-up layers have occurred, then this is a highly dirtied floor and intensive cleaning is recommended.

Step 1 – Cleaning

  • Equipment
    Di Legno intensive cleaner, cloth or a polishing machine with a green pad if applicable.
  • Di Legno intensive cleaner
    This product is a solvent-based cleaning agent for the removal of old wax, oil, fat and dirt layers on polished or oiled floors. It is also an adequate agent for removing stubborn stains.
  • Instructions
    Because the Di Legno intensive cleaner dries quickly, you should best treat the parquet floor in strips of 8 m². Divide the intensive cleaner over the floor and leave it to work in for about one minute. Then scrub the floor with a cloth or polishing machine with a green pad. Then immediately wipe the dissolved wax film, including the dirt up with a cloth. Repeat this until the floor has been cleaned completely. Then mop the floor using a damp cloth.
  • Warning
    Good ventilation is required while using the product.
  • Material coverage
    Approx. 1 litre per 25-50 m².

Step 2 – Reconditioning polished Di Legno floors

  • Equipment
    Original wax applied, polishing block or machine with a white pad.
  • Instructions
    To restore the attractive look you may polish your Di Legno floor slightly after drying with the original wax used, using a polishing block or machine with a white pad.
  • Material coverage
    Approx. 1 litre per 40 m².
  • Drying time
    The floor can be used immediately after application.
  • Tip for intensively used polished floors
    The colourless wax we01 is not recommended for intensive use, such as in kitchens.
  • Transition to ordinary maintenance
    Wait at least 14 days before cleaning the floor with water, as done in an ordinary maintenance, for example when using the Di Legno soap.
