Bruce No–Wax Hardwood Floors with a Dura–Luster, Dura–Luster Plus or Permion Finish and Bruce Laminate
Floors are similar in the way they are maintained. If you have one of these Bruce floors in your home or if you’re
considering one for purchase, this information will help you understand the process of caring for your floor.
Each floor comes with a detailed set of Care & Maintenance Instructions and a Warranty. These two documents go hand in
hand because the Care Instructions tell you how to uphold your Warranty through Maintenance. The instructions contain easy to
follow, detailed information about specific conditions and situations. This really boils down to a few basic rules... clean
your floor regularly, be careful with items that can scratch the floor and use manufacturer recommended maintenance products
only (to uphold the Warranty).
Bruce Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner is a unique cleaner, specifically formulated and recommended, for use on the Bruce
No–Wax Wood (Dura–Luster, Dura–Luster Plus or Permion Finish) & Bruce Laminate Floors. The cleaner
lifts soil from the surface of the urethane floor finish without leaving a film or streaking on the floor.
Initial care for your Wood or Laminate Floor starts immediately following installation. Floor should be thoroughly swept
and dust mopped to remove loose dirt and debris then cleaned with Bruce Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner and a Bruce
Swivel–Head Mop with Microfiber Cover. These items can be purchased as a Maintenance Kit then Cleaner and extra Mop
Covers can be purchased separately as you need them. If installing the floor is a Do It Yourself (DIY) project, buy these
cleaning products ahead of time (see coupon code for discount). If you’re having the floor professionally installed, check
with your installer to see if they provide cleaner and microfiber mop –some will and some won’t. Be prepared with product to
start cleaning your floor right away.
To clean the entire floor, simply spray Bruce Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner directly onto the floor and use a Bruce
Swivel–Head Mop with Microfiber Cover to work the cleaner into the floor to lift the dirt onto the mop head. Spray and
mop one small area at a time. After cleaning, wash and hang-dry the mop cover so it’s ready for the next use.
Sweep frequently for your floor to look its best. This keeps small particles of dirt from building up underfoot. These
particles of dirt act like sandpaper to a wood or laminate floor. They will, over time, cause small scratches in the floor’s
surface and dull the finish.
Many customers ask if they can use a vacuum instead of sweeping to speed up cleaning. Sweeping is gentler on the floor so
it is the preferred method however, if you feel you must use a vacuum, only use one with a soft brush or felt pad head. Don’t
use a vacuum with beater bars, hard heads or damaged casters because it will scratch and dent your floor and your Warranty
will be null and void.
Spot clean your floor as often as necessary and clean the whole floor periodically with Bruce Hardwood & Laminate Floor
Cleaner. Never let cleaner (or any other liquid) puddle on the floor as this could damage the floor. Liquids are your floor’s
enemy! For spot cleaning small areas, wipe up spill then apply the cleaner onto a clean cloth and use it to rub area until
Rules of thumb:
- Don’t let spills sit on the floor. Wipe up promptly and clean area with Bruce Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner and a
- Don’t allow heavy object to drag across the floor. If you need to move furniture or appliances, use EZ Move
Felt–Bottom Slides that allow the heavy item to sit on a cushioned pad with felt on the bottom so you can easily slide
the piece along the floor without damaging its surface.
- Put felt floor protectors on the bottom of chair legs and all other furniture that sits on your wood floor to prevent
denting and scratching.
- Keep sharp items off your floor! Such as spiked or worn heels, heavy wooden soled shoes, toys with hard plastic
wheels…you get the idea.
- Pets’ nails should be kept trimmed.
Once you use with this maintenance routine, you’ll find it’s easy and convenient.
