MODEL ENGINEERED PRODUCTS MEET THE MOST STRINGENT REQUIREMENTS OF THE CALIFORNIAN AIR REGULATION BOARD (CARB)

Following recent reports on CARB certification, PG Hardwood Flooring is pleased to announce that its Model engineered products meet the most stringent requirements of the Californian Air Regulation Board (CARB) regarding volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Moreover, because we want to make our planet a better world, engineered products by Model are available with FSC certification, upon request.

CARB requirements do not apply to Model solid hardwood products because the regulation applies only to substrates used to manufacture engineered products.

" Simply magnificent! My creation. My design. I love your flooring! We ordered white flooring (Akoya) for a room and will be receiving it soon. We also ordered blue flooring (Mykonos) for another room. We adore your products and recommend them to everyone we meet. Our installer had never installed red flooring (Geisha) before, but he liked the product so much that he brought a sample to show his wife. Certainly lovely merchandise! Your floors are incredible and simply magnificent! "
Nicole Schavo, satisfied homeowner, Ontario

Q. What steps need I follow to maintain my prefinished hardwood flooring?

A. Keeping your flooring looking its best for many years requires maintenance and ambient humidity control. Compliance with our maintenance instructions is a determining factor of your warranty. Normal maintenance of prefinished flooring is simple and quick. Model cleaning products have been tested on our varnishes and their use will ensure that your floor remains beautiful looking for years to come.

Step 1: Vacuum regularly.

Step 2: Spray the cleaning product on the mop cover and rub a section of flooring back and forth in the direction of the boards.

Unadvisable: The use of wax, household cleaners and oil-based soap on flooring is not recommended, nor is cleaning flooring with a mixture of water and vinegar or using a steam cleaner. These products may damage the flooring and void your warranty.

Q. The colour of the moulding does not match the rest of the floor.

A. Wood is a natural material and it colour varies, depending on the cut, grain configuration and mineral steaks present. For best results, boards near moulding should be chosen from among those with the colour best matched to the moulding to avoid abrupt transitions.

Q. I’m having problems understanding the difference between grade and quality. If I choose Select and Better, the quality is better, isn’t it?

A. Effectively, many people believe that buying Select and Better means buying a better quality product. However, product quality is associated with the production method, while grade is associated with product colour. The grade refers to the number of characteristics allowed and the natural colour of the wood. For example, colour variation in the boards and the presence of small knots and mineral streaks is more markedly present in the Natural grade than in the Select and Better grade.

Refer to the “Documnents - Other documents” section to see the differences inherent in each grade. Do not forget that all PG® and Model® products, irrespective of grade, are manufactured with the same attention to detail. It’s up to you to choose the grade best suited to your rustic or contemporary style project.
