Warning! Please read this instruction carefully before installation. If you need assistance regarding installation or have any questions, contact the dealer who you bought the material from or CWF immediately. Also noted that the warranty will void if this instruction is not properly followed.


Important Notes:


1. Wood Floors, being a natural product, containing natural variations in color, tone, and graining, it will also (1) continue to expand or contract during seasons changing. Some minor separation between boards might occur during the years. (2) change of color, gloss level due to exposure to sunlight or UV rays. These are not covered by CWF’s warranty.


2. Installed wood floors must be maintained in a year-round living condition, as room temperature of 60-80 'F and humidity level range of 35-50% is recommended, using air conditioners, humidifiers or dehumidifiers as appropriate. Fail to keep this year-round living condition will void the warranty.


3. Prior to installation, the installer / homeowner should inspect all material of color, grade, size, quality, or any visible defects and determine if it matches the work order. CWF declines any responsibility for materials with visible defects once they are installed. DO NOT INSTALL IT if you think the material is not acceptable, but contact CWF or its dealer/retailer immediately. Also noted that the installer should use reasonable selectivity to cull out or cut off unacceptable pieces, and the industry standard allows up to 5% of defects.


4. It is the responsibility of the installer and the homeowner to determine if the job site sub-floor and job site conditions are environmentally acceptable for the installation of CWF' Floors. CWF declines any responsibility for failure resulting from or connected with sub-floor, or job site damage, or deficiencies after floors has been installed.


5. CWF makes no warranty or guarantee of the quality of the chosen installer's work or of a particular installation performed by them. CWF disclaims all liability for any errors or improprieties in the installation of its products by an installer.


Important: Do not Wax! No Damp Mop!

Daily Cleaning: Remove loose dirt and grit, use dust mop, broom sweep, electric broom. Footprints and dirt can easily be wiped away with a moist cloth. Wipe up liquid or food spills promptly with dry cloth or paper towels. Remove sticky residue (like jelly) with a slightly dampened cloth. For general cleaning, add 1/4 cup of white vinegar to 1 quart of warm water. Dip a clean cloth or sponge mop and wring nearly dry. Clean floor and wipe dry with a towel as you go. You may use other leader brands of Hard Wood Flooring cleaner applied ONLY for PRE-FINISHED (MANUFACTURER FINISHED) HARDWOOD FLOORING. Do not use ammonia or oil-based wax, polish, abrasive cleaners, or furniture cleaners. Use mats in areas subject to high traffic or regular dirt wear such as kitchen, hallways and entryways. Fit furniture legs with felt tips. Rolling furniture should be fixed with soft rubber chair casters. Periodically rearranging your furniture / area rug and closing the curtains during intense periods of sunlight can help you to reduce color change or fade of wood floor.
