Basic steps to protect your flooring could allow homeowners to have a perfect and attractive home for a long period of time.
As there are a few homeowners who have requested to know more about ways to maintain HERF, we have come out with several tips for homeowners to do their basic maintenance for their flooring.
High End Resilient Flooring (HERF) is a type of wood-alike flooring that does not require much maintenance as compared with other floorings. As it is a waterproof material, normal mopping would be allowed to clean the floor without having to worry that your flooring might warp due to water seepage.
Homeowners do not have to worry about termites/insects problems as the material does not made up of any wood contents.
However, it is advisable not to lay HERF in open concept balcony with no open/close windows as there is a possibility that the colour might fade after a few years due to high exposure of rain and shine as well as shower area in the bathroom.
For HERF, Basic maintenance such as sweeping and mopping would be sufficient to achieve a clean and beautiful outlook of your home. It is different from solid wood flooring where varnishing and lacquering would be required to polish the floor to obtain the original look of the flooring.
Similar to laminate flooring, never use wax to polish HERF as it might blur the surfaces of the flooring.
As HERF have similar characteristics with laminate flooring, the basic protection for the flooring would be to place soft mats or plastic sheets under heavy objects such as bicycles, grand piano so as to prevent any possible dents or sharp scratch marks on the floor. It is best not to drag chairs other than computer roller chairs on the flooring. In this way, your flooring can last for a long period of time without visible scratch marks that would cause the appearance of the flooring to be flawed.
For dog owners, it will be better to toilet trained them or to clean up their mess quickly to prevent any smell or staining on the floor.
