Karastan hardwood is renowned for its exquisite beauty, quality and resilience. By following a few care and cleaning guidelines for your flooring, you can expect years of enjoyment.
Use protective window coverings to block fade-causing UV rays and excessive heat from direct sunlight. During inclement weather, avoid exposing your flooring to water as much as possible. Most wood types will gradually age when not covered, so it’s a good idea to rearrange rugs and furniture periodically to help it age evenly.
Use a dust mop, soft bristle broom or a vacuum cleaner with suction only (no beater bar or with the beater bar disengaged) to remove dust, dirt and loose particulate on a regular basis. This prevents gritty dirt and particle buildup that can scratch the wood’s surface. Avoid wet-mop cleaning with water or liquid cleaners.
Some of the world’s finest stringed instruments feature European maple, which creates a unique resonance due to its compact grain pattern.
In the tradition of French winemakers, we source French oak from the Forest of Tronçais. Medullary rays and tight grain patterns make the oak equally ideal for storing wine and crafting hardy floors.
