Let’s see in detail the “Corà Floor Care” program: all you need to know to care for your parquet floor!

Corà Floor care is a system developed to care for your parquet floor and for the weekly,

periodic and extraordinary maintenance operations on wood floors.

Our Maintenance Kit cares for your new parquet floor, whereas Wax Care protects a worn parquet floor.

Routine maintenance for natural oiled parquet floor using “Rigenera Oil” 

Once the floor has been laid, under no circumstance should it be washed using water or other products for

at least 5 to 7 days. Use a plastic spatula to remove any glue residue once it has dried:

do not use excessive force as this may scratch the surface;

after this, perform a routine maintenance followed by a periodic maintenance. This is how to do it.

Use Soft Aloe 1 to clean your floor weekly: this is a natural,

transparent or pigmented detergent that cleans and nourishes the wood floor thanks to a formula

that contains treatment oil. We recommend carefully following the instructions and dosage given in the packaging.

 

Routine maintenance:

  • Remove any dust using a vacuum cleaner with brushes/felts suitable for parquet floors;

  • Pour lukewarm water into a bucket and add the correct quantity of Soft Aloe 1 detergent (1/3 glass). Dip a cotton cloth or mop;

  • Wring out the cloth and wash the floor. This operation should be carried out once a week, if necessary;

  • Allow the floor to dry before walking on it.

 

Periodic maintenance:

Use Soft Aloe 2 for periodic reviving maintenance operations: this product was especially formulated to nourish and revive the surface of oiled floors. If used whenever necessary, it ensures that the surface remains even and enhances the natural beauty of parquet floors. We recommend carefully following the instructions and dosage given in the packaging. 

To restore wood floors that are excessively worn out or that have been incorrectly maintained, we recommend contacting a skilled professional specialized in wood floors.

To ensure that the beauty of your floor is maintained over time, after carrying out the above described operation, just use a slightly damp cloth with a small amount of Soft Aloe 2. This should be done every 3 months; never use steam to clean the floor!

 

Routine maintenance for varnished and Uv oil parquet floors

  • Remove any dust using a vacuum cleaner with brushes/felts suitable for parquet floors;

  • Pour lukewarm water into a bucket and add the correct quantity of Detergente Cleaner (1/3 glass) and dip a cotton cloth or mop;

  • Wring out the cloth and wash the floor. This operation should be carried out once a week, if necessary;

  • Allow the floor to dry before walking on it.

To ensure that the beauty of the varnish is maintained over time, after carrying out the above described operation, just use a slightly damp cloth and add a small amount of Rigenerante Conditioner. Clean a small section of the floor and then rinse the cloth; repeat until the whole floor is clean. This operation should be carried out twice a year; if the floor has an Oil UV finishing, this should be done every three months.

 

Extraordinary maintenance for any type of parquet floor 

Wax Careis the product made by Corà Parquet to care for varnished, oiled and waxed floors, which have been subjected to high traffic and are therefore worn out or scratched. 

Wax Care gives your wood floor a pleasant, natural and water-repellent effect. Its special formulation revives, maintains and restores your floor. This extraordinary maintenance operation is also recommended as a protective measure for newly laid floors. 

Wax Care creates a transparent and water-repellent film that protects a newly laid floor and preserves a worn-out surface. In a domestic environment, this treatment should be carried out one to three times a year, following the instructions written on the bottle. This product is ideal for treating and protecting high-traffic environments, such as hotels, shops, restaurants, etc.

How does it work? Wax Care is a water-repellent wax dispersion for the intensive treatment of varnished (solvent, water), oiled and waxed wood floors.

 

10 useful tips to keep your parquet floors in perfect conditions

  1. Vacuum the floor on a regular basis.

  2. To clean your floor daily, dip a cloth in water and wring it out. A dry microfibre cloth is an effective dust remover. Do not use fabric softener.

  3. Do not use aggressive cleaning agents, such as ammonia, bleach, muriatic acid, alcohol, etc.

  4. Do not use excessively wet cloths and do not steam-clean.

  5. In case of accidental spillage of substances which may leave stubborn stains (wine, coffee, etc.)

  6. Wipe up immediately.

  7. Put a doormat outside the front door to wipe off any dust or abrasive substances from the soles of the shoes.

  8. In offices, the chairs should be fitted with castors that are suitable for wood floors (soft); alternatively, a transparent mat should be positioned between the chair and the floor. In domestic environments, put stick-on felt protectors under the legs of tables and chairs.

  9. Maintain a constant humidity level in the rooms (recommended humidity should be between 45% and 65%).

  10. Don't worry too much about small scratches or imperfections: a wood floors that has been lived in is much more fascinating than a flawless one!
