Att: Instructions for Installation and Use mentioned on this website are just general recommendation for flooring produced by Morava Wood. Your local dealer / installer overtakes responsibility for installation as he is the only person who should properly consider local norms valid in a country and specific conditions of a specific installation place. In case you buy our products as end-user and install our flooring yourself you always need to follow the instruction manual which is inside of the packing. 

Important General Conditions

STORAGE before laying --> store floor packages flat so that they do not undergo any deformation. They must be stored away from condensation and rising damp. The floor have to be stored in its packaging at room temperature for at least 48 hours before installation. Parcels should only be opened when laying. In any case all packages should not be opened in advance. The room should be perfectly dry, closed with a minimum temperature of 18 ° C. Do not place the floor if the ambient air humidity is not between 45% and 65%.

Optimum climate conditions for the solid wood flooring are a temperature from 20 to 22°C and relative air humidity of 45 to 65%. A humidifier, thermometer and humidity meter will help you control and maintain a constant moisture level in the interior. Wood is a natural material. Humidity variations cause wood to move constantly, changing its volume and shape. In a dry environment it shrinks and, in a humid environment it expands.

The units may have some variations in color, these will later unify. Above all, the flooring will become darker during the first 3-6 months.

Although your floor has been produced with the greatest care we recommend you to check all units for damage before you start laying the floor. Damaged units can be replaced only if they have not been used.


  • Protect furniture and chair legs with proper felt or plastic caps.
  • Avoid bringing dirt, water and sand indoors by providing a suitable floor mat at the door.
  • Use (office) chairs and seats with soft wheels that are suitable for wood flooring and/or use a suitable desk mat.
  • Ensure that humidity in the room is always at least 55±10%. Use a humidifier if you need to.
