Future Maintenance

Natural oil finished floors should never need to be re-sanded. However, over time it is necessary to apply more oil to the floor. Traffic patterns or wear areas can be easily eliminated with this step. Typically in a residential application this is anywhere from 2-5 years after initial use of the floor. WOCA Maintenance Oil Diamond Active provides the floor with additional hard wearing properties. Use Maintenance Oil White on White oiled floors and Maintenance Oil Natural on all others. Please follow directions on the label.

Commercial Applications

General Recommendations:

WOCA Master Color Oil

After installation in commercial areas (high traffic areas) the new floors should be first mopped with WOCA Wood Cleaner 1:40 ratios to prep the floor. Let the floor dry then polish with a coat of WOCA Master Color Oil in a 1:40 ratio and let floor dry 1-2 hours. Work in 250-300sqft sections. Using a thick white polish pad, pour a capful of WOCA Master Oil into the center of the white pad and begin buffing the floor. Add small amounts of oil directly to the floor as needed. Once you have buffed the WOCA Master Oil into a section, you must remove the WOCA Master Oil from the surface. Remove any excess WOCA Master Oil on the surface using a cotton cloth underneath a clean white pad. Repeat this process with each section. For ongoing cleaning of commercial areas, see the WOCA Commercial Cleaning Guide.

Display and Showroom floors are great ways to show the beauty and character of natural oiled floors. To ensure the floors last a long time and hold up to the constant flow of traffic in a showroom or model home the Manufacturer recommends treating these floors as a commercial application by using WOCA Master Color Oil after installation. The Manufacturer believes this is necessary to maintain the beauty and protect the investment. Please refer to WOCA Commercial Care and Maintenance Guideline and recommend contacting WOCA for detailed step by step process.
