CAUTIONS AND WARNINGS
- The ventilation system should never be shut down for a prolonged period of time
- MFMA flooring should never be scrubbed manually or with machinery
- Water should never be used on the floors and will likely cause damage
- Always consult your MFMA contractor for modifications, repairs, and maintenance
Ensure the maintenance of regular moisture, wood absorbs and releases moisture and a deviation can cause expansion and shrinkage. The installation allows for natural expansion and shrinkage using expansion voids around the parameter and expansion joints built into the floor. This is done to allow for normal ranges of expansion and contraction without damaging the floor, however, any abnormal expansion can lead to significant damage to the flooring and would present as cupping and buckling of the floors. Likewise, if the environment is too dry, the contraction of the wood can cause the separation of the floor strips, damaging the floors.
