Any other material has no those advantages which are peculiar to a solid wood floor.

BAREFOOT ALL YEAR ROUND
Today the modern living is always connected with an underfloor heating. The pleasant comfortable climate and energy-saving operation are very popular among housebuilders and interior renovators.
IN COMBINATION WITH FEEL WOOD SOLID WOOD FLOOR YOU WILL CREATE A UNIQUE MICROCLIMATE.
Wood is a hygroscopic material and reacts to its environment. Wood takes in and gives off air moisture, and because of this, the dimensions of the floor boards can change.
This can cause discrepancies in both the length and width of the boards, in the width this can happen whether the cut is tangential or radial (horizontal or vertical growth rings).
The potential for swelling or shrinking in the length is negligible, in the width it’s extent depends on the type of wood. If the moisture content sinks, the wood will shrink and the joints will open. For a reduction in moisture content of 5% and an average swelling and shrinking value of 0,25% the result will be 1,25%. For a board width of 128 mm therefore, 1,25% will result in approx. 1,6 mm opening of the joints.
These are average values and depend naturally on the species of wood, the growth area, and on the annual growth rings of that particular board (outer or core area) and can therefore vary.

In order to have unlimited pleasure with FEEL WOOD solid floor, to provide a perfect appearance in the new place and highlight its natural beauty, we recommend you to make a simple first care immediately after installation.
1. Dry cleaning
Always at first start with dry cleaning with a powerful vacuum cleaner. In case of contamination, which may occur during the installation or in vicinity of a construction site, an additional wet cleaning may be recommended.
2. Damp cleaning with FEEL WOOD care oil
Apply a small amount of FEEL WOOD care oil, distribute with a floor wiper and wipe away. After it has already been oiled twice at the factory, the floor only absorbs a little oil – it is more a matter of “oiling out” to create the optical effect of a new floor
Depending on the loading, a natural oiled wooden floor in the living area in addition to the regular cleaning should be extensively maintained at least once a year. For surfaces with heavy loading in objects area this maintenance interval should be shortened.
1. Dry cleaning
with a powerful vacuum cleaner.
2. Wet cleaning with FEEL WOOD Natural Woodfloor Soap
For five litres of water add appr. 50 ml (1/2 yogurt-cup) soap. Wipe the floor well with this solution and a wrung cotton wipe. For larger areas or very dirty, use two buckets, so you could wash out the dirty wipe in clear water before you apply the soap solution as a protection on the floor again. The floor must be absolutely dry before the next step – re-oiling, therefore let it dry for about eight hours!
ATTENTION: Do not use microfiber cloths, as their abrasive effect WILL remove the oil from the pores of the wood.
3. Re-oiling with FEEL WOOD-Maintenance oil
Without polishing machine: FEEL WOOD-Maintenance oil to be dripped onto the maintained surface, or spray with a pump-sprayer. Distribute and blur evenly with a floormop, in direction of the boards. Let dry without polishing. Attention, note slightly longer drying time about 12 – 14 hours.
With polishing machine: FEEL WOOD-Maintenance oil to be filled in a pump-sprayer. Spray the maintenance oil on the floor, rub-in and blur (streak-free) with a polishing machine with a white pad. Drying time is about 6 – 8 hours. With 1 litre of maintenace oil you can process an area of about 20m².
ATTENTION: Cloths or cleaning papers, sponges, etc. soaked with care oil, spread out well to dry or keep tightly sealed in a tin can until completely dry (danger of self-ignition of oxidatively drying natural oils)!
Oiled floors should be regularly maintened – normally once a year in the living area and more often when it comes to floors exposed to extremely hard wear. For this purpose, we recommend using FEEL WOOD-Care products.
Avoid standing wetness. Protect the surface from scratches, e.g., by using felt pads under chairs and furniture. Remove abrasive or sharp-edged materials such as sand or stone chips..
