Anyone creating products from natural materials as we do – has to work in harmony with nature, rather than against it.
Sustainability through-out the whole production process and after is one of the main focuses of the company and our suppliers. In fact, the factories are all FSC and PEFC certified. All raw materials come exclusively from sustainable managed forests or from local plantations. Our suppliers use cutting edge manufacturing facilities focused on environment perspective; they therefore guarantee a high amount of waste raw material (chippings) are used to generate eco-electricity (i.e. bio-mass), which we not only use for their own factories, but also can be fed back into the public grid. All glues, oils and the lacquer, needed for production process, meet the highest economical standards and regulations.
Taking good care of your floor – the easy way!
Taking good care of your floor preserves its value and beauty and is important for the warranty. Perfect floor care today is not rocket science. This is especially true for Alpineflor floor coverings, which thanks to their high-quality surfaces are very fast, simple and easy to maintain. Dry cleaning with a broom, mop or vacuum cleaner is generally all you need to do. To remove ingrained dirt or to provide added surface protection, simply give your floor covering a damp wipe with the recommended clean & green cleaning agent. You're done!
To maintain the floor's quality and appearance, we recommend using felt or Teflon gliders on furniture, polycarbonate mats for any chair castors as well as doormats at entrances. A constant room temperature is also important – not only for your personal well-being, but also for your floor: 20°C (68°F) at a relative air humidity of 50 to 60 percent is ideal for wood floors. Optimal maintenance of the floor right from the start is, of course, just as important. Especially if you have a high-quality floor covering like parquet, laminate or cork, the optimally coordinated clean & green care and cleaning products are ideal for you.
How hot should the mop water be?
Why are there always smears remaining after mopping?
An incorrect dosage amount of the floor cleaner can also cause unsightly smears or streaks. You should therefore make sure that you always follow the manufacturer's instructions for the correct dosage of your floor cleaner in order to ensure streak-free cleaning results. Your cloth is clean and you have used the correct dosage of floor cleaner and yet there are still streaks? It may still be because of your cleaning cloth. That's because using fabric softeners in conjunction with cleaning agents can lead to unsightly smears. Therefore: never use fabric softeners when washing your cleaning cloths.
Is there anything I need to look out for when mopping if I have underfloor heating?
How damp is damp?
Damp, as you can imagine it, in the sense of the hazy mist that forms on the floor or mirror after a luxurious bath or shower. In terms of your floor cloth or wet-mop head then, this means wring it out thoroughly – in fact so vigorously that there is scarcely any water remaining. This is the optimal mop dampness for wiping your floor.
