HOW DO I KEEP A PERFECT SHINE ON MY PREVERCO FLOOR?
Use a cleaner designed for prefinished hardwood floors, like the ones made by Preverco. We highly recommend using Preverco's cleaning kit.

PREVERCO CLEANING KIT
The products can be found at authorized Preverco retailers. Never use a damp mop and a bucket, as the excess moisture can damage the wood and the finish.
Always use high-quality products for better cleaning results. The use of lower-quality cleaners may leave a greasy residue on your floor (cloudy film or haze). It can also cause problems or reduce the life of your floor's finish.
If possible, avoid any product that claims to protect your floor. These products leave a cloudy film or residue, making your floor look damaged.
CAN I USE A MOP WITH A SPRAYER LIKE A SWIFFER® WETJET® OR OTHER SIMILAR PRODUCT TO CLEAN MY PREVERCO FLOOR?
We recommend spraying cleaner on a microfibre pad instead of spraying it on the floor.
MY LOCAL RETAILER DOES NOT CARRY YOUR CLEANER. WHERE CAN I GET SOME?
You can ask your retailer to check Preverco's price list and order it for you. In the near future, you will be able to order it directly, right here on this website.
CAN I USE A MOP AND BUCKET TO CLEAN MY PREVERCO FLOOR?
We do not recommend using a mop and bucket to clean your Preverco hardwood floors. If too much water enters the wood through the cracks in the floor, there is a chance that the flooring could expand and cause a range of problems, including cupping (when the sides of the floorboards curl up) and peeling finish (when the varnish detaches from the boards).
CAN FLOORS WITH THE WAVE AND BRUSHED TEXTURES BE CLEANED AS EASILY AS THOSE WITH THE REGULAR FINISH?
Textured floors can be cleaned just as easily as our regular products. The same type of finish is applied to all of our products*.
* With the exception of the oiled finish.
CAN I USE A STEAM MOP ON PREVERCO FLOORS?
Preverco does not recommend using steam mops. These systems work by shooting steam against a surface and collecting dirt with a cloth mop.
Hardwood reacts to its environment and absorbs moisture, which causes it to expand. Preverco's opinion is that this process will very likely damage the flooring by causing massive expansion and inflicting permanent damage.
HOW DO I RESTORE THE SHINE TO MY PREVERCO FLOOR?
The first step is to remove the cloudy film by washing the floor with a mixture of water and vinegar. THIS PROCESS IS NOT A LONG-TERM SOLUTION. Only do it once or twice.
For each litre of water, add 2 caps of vinegar. Apply a small amount to a cloth and wipe the floor. If this does not work, use a more efficient cleaner. We suggest Finitec's Surface Preparation.
WATER-BASED SURFACE PREPARATION
Eliminates residues and cleans hard surfaces. The first step before using Finitec Tonic for Wood and Laminate Floors.
