Harald’s experiences – part I

Some month ago a lady was coming in our flagship store and wanted have a very light floor for the whole house. She decided to take the mafi Maple white oiled and wanted to install this floor also in the kitchen. We discussed the situation and I ask here if she is also cooking in her kitchen, because I was thinking about “Hungarian Gulasch” or “Italian pasta” on the floor – which would be a nice colour difference – and I told her that I was not so sure if this floor is quite well the right decision.

2 weeks later I a met another lady having breakfast in the Cafe Bazar and she asked me, “you are working in this nice flagship around the corner, aren’t you?“yes I am”, and she said:”We decided 6 years ago to take this wonderful  floor and I am still so happy because it´s so easy to clean. Much better then the floor we had before”. I ask her all the important things, which floor, which rooms, …

She told me that they have a mafi Maple white oiled in the whole house also in the kitchen and in the bathroom too. No problems, no stains. I learned that it´s possible to use a white oiled maple also in a kitchen with kids and dogs. I ask here about her secret to get a look like a new floor. She said “I took a little more soap on the floor in the beginning than mafi recommend me. And so the floor was fat enough and I never had a problem“.

The only problem I had with this information, I got it 2 weeks too late to tell the other lady.
