Tips and Tricks to Protect Your Investment

Now that you have added value to your home and giving it a distinguished look with a Timber Floor, let’s look at preserving your prized investment.

Following are a few quick and easy tips & tricks to help keep your timber floor looking and feeling amazing for years to come! 

Remember: Prevention is better than the cure!

Floors are on the receiving end of day-to-day traffic and unavoidable mishaps and spills.  Savvy and sensible preventative steps will not only protect and preserve your floors; it also means you will be spending less time cleaning it.

Here are some time saving tips and tricks:
Yes, Definitely! BIG No No!
Wipe up liquid spills immediately. Water! Wet mops! Wood & water do not mix.  Excessive water can damage the wood and leave a residue.
Only use appropriate floor cleaners – *Bona mop and floor cleaner recommended. All-purpose cleaners – they can leave your floors dull and looking lack lustre
Limit exposure to direct sunlight by closing blinds and curtains. Lengthy exposure to direct sunlight – can fade or dry out the wood.
Room humidity 30 to 50%. Oil-based soaps and wax.
Use Protective mats and/or rugs under office chairs or chairs with caster wheels – Felt-backed are best. Rugs with rubber or abrasive backing – these can discolour, trap moisture and damage your floor.
Maintain Room temperature 15 to 27*C. Steam Cleaners.
Avoid dragging in sand, dirt and grit by strategically placing mats and rugs inside and outside. Scourers or abrasives.
Remove shoes – STOP the sand, dirt, grit at the doorway. High heels, cleats and some sports shoes can dent the surface.
Clean your floor daily with a smooth floor broom, a static mop or a vacuum cleaner with felt pads to avoid scratching. NEVER use vacuum cleaners with bristle/ beater bars or ensure the bar is turned off before you use it.
Always use felt pads/ protection under the furniture to avoid scratches and minimise damage when moving furniture around. Drag furniture on floor without protection – especially furniture with sharp metal or wooden legs.
Ensure your pets nails are clipped… Pets running around can scratch your floor. Never put down your pets water dish directly on the floor – place a mat between your floor and the water dish.
*Warning: Only use compatible cleaning products for your floor finish!

Jon Craddock

"Met with Ray who recommended a brand of floor boards to us. He put in the extra effort in finding an off-cut sample so we could take it home to see how it looks like in the house. The installers were polite and professional. They even completed the floor in the bedrooms first so that we could bring in our bedroom furniture as they thought it might rain that day."

Gerald & Amanda


"Thank you Esspada Collection for helping me find the perfect floating timber floors for my home. Years have gone by since installing the Elyseum Merbau floating timber and it still looks fantastic. The staff have been very helpful since the date of purchase till present. The staff are knowledgeable and understanding. They offer excellent quality flooring for an excellent price and even work towards providing suitable prices for those on a budget. I would recommend them to anyone."

We have been dealing with Esspada Collection since we started our business in 1999. Since then every project they have supplied us with high quality timber floor and carpets. Their service is very professional and they install the timber floor and carpets beautifully. As matter of fact their timber floor and carpets are one of the best features in the houses we have built.

This in itself speaks volumes for the company. I spend a minimum of $20,000.00 per annum on their product. Price is always competitive, service is excellent, jobs are completed on time and every aspect is completely efficient and professional. This is a rarity in these days. I can highly recommend Esspada Collection to any intending purchaser."
