Vidar is a type of English Manor flooring, crafted from American Oak. It comes in a 6 inch width and features various accessories like hardwood, bevelled edges, and a Brown color with character and a clean, refined appearance. The flooring has a click installation system, a dark finish, and is certified by the EPA and Floorscore for its environmental standards. The Vidar flooring has a matte finish, is made with oak that is plain sawn, and has a plywood core for stability. It has a subtle texture created by wire brushing and is installed using a tongue and groove method. The flooring is protected with a UV lacquer coating.
Vacuum the floor frequently to eliminate the presence of solid particles (such as sand) which may damage or scratch the floor. (Caution: Only use vacuums especially made for hardwood floor. Thevacuum should be in good condition thus no damage will be made to the floor finish).
Swiftly wipe the surface of the floor with the mop using a to and fro motion across the length of thefloorboards. Use non-wax flooring cleaner to keep the floor in good condition. Caution: The use of
ammonia is not recommended as it can discolor hardwood floor also it is very harsh on finishes; Use of
vinegar is not recommended. It is an acid that can etch the finish and create a dull look; Use of any oil
soap product is not recommended as it usually leaves a residue that can be sticky and difficult to removeas well as attracting dirt; The use of silicon products and wax
Rugs or mats at all entrances is recommended. Make sure it gets on the floor before removal of dirt andgrit. Shake out and wash rugs and mats regularly is necessary.
Routine maintenance would include not only sweeping, but vacuuming and dust mopping. Caution: Donot use a treated dust mop (Mop treated with silicone, wax or other treatments may damage your woodfloor finish). Never use a wet mop on your hardwood floor as excess water could harm the floor andcause premature wear. Wet mopping will void your warranty.
Use of felt protectors under furniture is recommended. When moving heavy furniture (fridges, pianos, etc.), please place a thick rug underneath thus less damage would made to your floor.
Do not wear shoes at home. Shoes can be very harmful to your floor because of the little pebbles can inthem and scratch the floor. And when the weather is bad, you may bring water and sometimes salt tohome thus damage the floor.
Although manufacturers’ finish delays and reduces most of the sun shading phenomenon that causes hardwood to darken and or lighten over time, your floor needs to be protected from sunlight and intenseartificial lighting to reduce discoloration of exposed wood. This phenomenon with hardwood surfaces is
normal and natural.

Lightly spray the cleaner ‘BONA’ on a five square foot section of the floor.
