Flooring Care & Maintenance

Preserve the Life of Your Floors

Calgary’s climate presents unique challenges for the proper care and maintenance of floors and tile installations. We live in a very dry atmosphere, with low average daily humidity, where daily temperatures can swing 40 degrees either way in the span of a few hours.

Calgary is also one of the sunniest cities in Canada, reaching a peak of almost 20 hours of daylight during the summer months. Sunlight can be one of the most damaging influences on a floor, along with moisture and human traffic. It can cause the colour of certain flooring products to fade, and in extreme cases heave through expansion and contraction.

The experts at Contempa have put together a list of common care and maintenance tips for every flooring and tile product.
