Merbau Wood Floor
This durable wood may take on many names in the Indo-Malayan region, but it still remains one of the most beautiful woods available for your flooring and furniture needs. When freshly cut, the wood is a yellowish to orange-brown color, but then darkens over time to a brown or red-brown. The surface of the boards may have a yellow “flecking” which in turn leaves the appearance of gold flecks in the wood. Merbau is almost as stable as Teak and is often compared to Hickory in strength, although its density is lower.  Merbau sands well and has a good holding ability. Be sure to give this special wood the proper care it needs.

Contact with moisture or iron can stain the wood black. This wood is grown in the Indo-Malayan region and many of the Western Pacific Islands and is also a resource for dyes. As a result of its durability, it is used in flooring as well as furniture, woodwork, cabinets and musical instruments.

How is your hardwood floor supposed to look?
Appearance: Merbau wood floors are medium brown colored wood with reddish/orange highlights as well as yellow flecking.

Grain: Varies from straight to interlocked wavy.
 
Properties: Very strong and resistant to termites.

General Guidelines to Keep Your Hardwood Flooring in Great Shape

These simple steps can prolong the life and beauty of your hardwood floor regardless of the specific type of wood you may have.

  • Close curtains and blinds- UV rays from sunlight can fade colors and cause discoloration.
  • Use protectors under furniture bases that can scratch or mar the surface.
  • Clean, wipe or blot spills immediately to help prevent stains.
  • Place doormats at every door- this helps to trap dirt at the doorway instead of transferring it to the floor. (The Floor mats featured at ForLifeProducts.com are perfect for this!)
  • Take care when moving heavy objects like furniture and equipment- utilize furniture coasters to transport heavy objects across floors.
  • Dust and vacuum floors regularly to maximize beauty and decrease buildup.
  • Exercise caution when using bleaches, mildew removers, oven cleaners, drain openers and plant food as these contain strong chemicals that can damage or discolor floors.
  • Always follow your manufacturer’s guidelines on products and use only those that are safe for your hardwood floor type.
  • Rearrange area rugs occasionally as they block sunlight causing a discolored area to develop under the rug.
  • Avoid exposure to water.
  • Maintain normal humidity of 40-60% throughout all seasons of the year to reduce the natural expansion and contraction process typically found in hardwoods. Humidity levels can be maintained with air conditioners, humidifiers, de-humidifiers or with a heating system.
  • Keep pets nails trimmed and filed and take care with stiletto style heels to minimize scratches.
  • Never clean hardwood floors with steel wools or scouring powders as these can cause damage.
