Maintenance and Care


Inspect your floors regularly, keeping them free of dirt, gravel, oil and stains.

 Place protective pads beneath furniture feet to reduce scratches and dents.

Remove shoes with spiked or damaged heels before walking on floor.

Remove spills immediately using a soft cloth.

Use hardwood floor approved area rugs in high traffic areas.

Exposure to the sun and its uv rays accelerates the oxidation and aging of wood and fabrics. This causes the wood to fade and change color. We recommend you rearrange rugs and furniture periodically so the floor ages evenly. If your floor was just installed, we do recommend refraining from placing any rugs down for the first two months after initial installation to minimize drastic and rapid color change.


 Sweep or vacuum regularly since built-up grit can scratch and damage the surface of the wood. Do not use a vacuum with a beater bar head.

 Never wet-mop or flood your floor with water or other products. This will severely damage the flooring and will void the warranty.

 American Guild® hardwood flooring recommends the use of Bona Kemi hardwood cleaner products and kits available at

Never use oil soaps, liquid or paste wax products, or other household cleaners that contain lemon oil, tung oil, silicone or ammonia, as they will dull your floor, damage the finish and void the warranty.
