Be sure to only use the manufacturer recommended cleaner on your hardwood floors.  Here at Urbanfloor we recommend Bona* brand.  Not using the proper cleaning product may void your warranty and it may cause other problems by changing the appearance of your floor.  Contact your authorized flooring dealer for the correct product for your floor.

    Our instructions cover these exact two scneario’sAny floor installed with Elastilon needs to be:-1. Flat Floor must be even with a maximum tolerance between 1/8” over 6 ft or 3/16” in a 10 ft radius. (2mm per 2.5 meters)2. Clean and structurally sound Free of debris and any other loose material. Wood sub-floors must be stable and securely fastened to supporting joists. Be sure to nail or screw any areas that are loose or squeak. Sand, scrap, or grind any raised edges and level all low spots with the appropriate leveling compound (Concrete floors included) so that maximum tolerances are met.Wood that is not perfect It is also important to visually inspect each piece of wood flooring before being installed. As with any other type of installation method, Elastilon cannot compensate for flooring that is severely bowed, warped, cupped, milled incorrectly or damaged prior to an installation. However, most boards may be used if the defective section is cut and removed with the remainder of the board used as a start or end piece, used in a closet, in a low traffic area or used in a concealed portion of the room. Please note that the use of mechanical fastening systems such as straps should never be used to force boards together. Pressure from a rubber mallet and the use of blue painters tape to keep boards tight is permissible. During the racking ( building) of the floor on top of the Elastilon protective release strip, flooring that is not severely bowed can be installed as long as it can still be inserted into the T&G of the boards surrounding it. This will pull the board straight and allow full contact on the Elastilon membrane. Be sure to place a small amount of carpenters glue on all four sides of the affected board for a concern free installation.
