We are frequently asked questions about caring for a hardwood floor. The following information should help you to better understand how to care for your Glitsa finished floor. If you have additional questions, please feel free to Contact Us. If you would like to purchase any of the recommended products, please visit our Products page.

What is Glitsa?
Glitsa is, in our opinion, the best product on the market for finishing hardwood floors. We have been using the Glitsa finish for over 20 years and are impressed with its durability and other features. Our customers seem to agree, since they frequently refer us to their friends and relatives.

Do I need to do anything special right after my floor is finished or refinished?
Use floors with care for the first two weeks after application. You can walk on the floor the next day, but we recommend that no furniture be put into the room for two to three days. No carpets or water should be used on the floors during this first two week period. Allow additional air flow across the surfaces such as open windows or fans to help the floor finish cure faster.

How do I clean my floor?
Vacuum or use an untreated dust mop on your floor regularly. This will keep the sand and grit off of your floor that may cause premature wear. Throw rugs that are cleaned on a regular basis are recommended in front of your kitchen sink and at each outside door. Wipe up food and other spills immediately using a dampened (not soaking wet) cloth or paper towel. Regular cleaning should be done with Glitsa Clean which is specially formulated to clean your Glitsa finished floor. Follow directions on the bottle for correct application.

What about furniture and shoes on the floor?
Chair legs and other pieces of furniture should all have Safeglides attached to them. Safeglides will allow chairs to glide over the floor without scuffing the surface. Keep high heeled shoes in good repair. Heels that have lost their protective cap can cause little indentations in any floor surface.

Should I wax my floor?
NO! Glitsa finished floors should never be waxed. If wax is applied, it will not be possible to recoat your floor.
