Frequently Asked Questions

What else is important for the long durability of stairs?

Appropriate indoor climate is an essential condition for the long durability of wooden stairs.

Stairs made from solid wood do best in conditions that are generally recommended for living spaces: relative humidity of 45–60% and air temperatures of 20–23 degrees Celsius. When humidity is too low or too high, cracks and other deformations appear in the wood due to shrinkage and expansion.

How to properly care for wooden stairs?

To maintain the protective layer of the varnish or oiled surface, use the care products intended for this purpose.

In cases of greater wear of the varnish or oil, the surface must be restored by re-applying the surface protection material.

What is the right way to clean wooden stairs?

It is especially important that any sand and other small particles are regularly removed from the stairs, as they will damage their protective layer and the wood. Any liquid spills must also be wiped off from the stairs immediately.

For dry cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush or a duster so as not to damage the protective layer on the surface of the stairs.

If wet cleaning is required, wipe the stairs with a soft damp cloth that is still dry enough to not leave any wet marks behind. You can also use a mild detergent that is suitable for wooden surfaces.

Steam cleaning of varnished and stained surfaces is not recommended, as it would damage the protective layer.
