US Floors - Maintenance and Care

Maintenance Guide for Oil Finished US Floors

Oil finished hardwood floors have a very different appearance from traditional UV finished or polyurethane hardwood floors. Over time, as applications of oil and maintenance occur, the floors will tend to look better as it ages and develops a rich patina.

Oiled floors are easy to maintain and will look great for a lifetime when maintained properly.

Renovation and care of oiled floors are very economical in comparison to other wood floors.

Regular, Routine Cleaning & Maintenance with WOCA Soap

WOCA Natural Soap is designed to clean and protect oil finished surfaces from dirt, stains and wear and tear. WOCA Natural Soap cleans and leaves behind an invisible layer of soy and coconut fats, which greatly help to ward off most anything. In fact, when used on a regular basis, WOCA Natural Soap increasingly makes your oil finished wood floor more dirt and wear resistant and easier to keep clean.

Follow These Simple Steps:

  • Daily cleaning is done with vacuum cleaner or by sweeping. The frequency of floor cleaning depends on the wear on the floor
  • Natural Soap is shaken carefully before use.
  • Mix 3 ounces of Soap into each gallon of lukewarm water. Clean/damp mop the floor.
  • Or use WOCA Natural Soap Spray- already diluted and ready to use, just spray and mop.

Tip: If a haze is visible after the soap treatment, put a cotton cloth under a dust mop and quickly polish away the haze.

Periodic Maintenance with WOCA Oil Refresher (generally 1-4 times a year)

WOCA Oil Refresher, available in Natural and White, is used for periodic cleaning and maintenance of oiled wood floors. Oil Refresher combines efficient cleaning with oil rejuvenation, as additional oil penetrates the wood and forms a protective layer in the surface.

Work Instructions:

  1. Shake the bottle well before and during use.
  2. The floor must be free of dust before treatment
  3. Mix Oil Refresher with lukewarm water in a ratio of 1:40 (3 oz. Refresher per gallon of water). Mixing ratios can vary depending on wear and requirement.
  4. Mop a small section of floor with a lightly wrung cotton mop along the wood grain.
  5. Leave the floor to dry for approx. 2 hours before use
  6. For slightly higher sheen, polish the dry floor with a white pad.

Or use WOCA Oil Refresher Spray- already diluted and ready to use, just spray and mop.

Tip: If a haze is visible after the Oil Refresher treatment, put a damp cotton cloth under a floor machine and polish it off, or mop the floor with water only.

Rejuvenation with WOCA Maintenance Diamond Active Oil or WOCA Master Color Oil (as needed)

See Color Matrix below

  2. Shake oil container well before and during use.
  3. Apply approx. 1-2 ounces per 40-50 sq. ft. onto the floor and polish oil by hand or with floor machine and white floor pad.
  4. It is important that the Maintenance Oil Diamond Oil Active or Master Color Oil is carefully polished into the wood. Continue polishing until the wood appears saturated and the surface looks uniform.
  5. Polish off all excess oil from floor using cotton cloths under the pad before proceeding with the next section of floor to be finished. Hand wipe all edges and corners. The floor should not appear wet and no excess oil should be left on the surface.
  6. When using a floor machine the oil will be pre-hardened after approx. 4 hours and may be cautiously taken into use. Manually polished floors after 24 hour

WOCA Maintenance Oil Diamond Active

  1. Do not expose floor or woodwork to water during hardening time of 24 hours.
  2. After 3 days the floor may be treated with WOCA Soap to provide additional protection against wear and tear.

WOCA Master Color Oil

  1. Do not expose floor or woodwork to water during hardening time of 72 hours.
  2. After 5 days the floor may be treated with WOCA Soap to provide additional protection against wear and tear.

Tip: For fastest drying time, leave windows slightly open to ensure a steady flow of fresh oxygen.

Warning! Rags, pads or waste soaked with WOCA oil may self-ignite if improperly discarded. Immediately after use, place all rags and waste in a sealed, water filled bucket for proper disposal.

Removing Stains, Scratches, and Burns on US Floors

Light scratches are best repaired by hand rubbing WOCA Master Color Oil or WOCA Maintenance Oil Diamond Active to your floor on the affected areas using a cloth.

  • If necessary, first clean the area to be repaired with lukewarm water
  • Be sure area is dry before applying oil. It is very important to let the floor dry completely before any oil is applied. Any trapped moisture under the oil may cause mildew to develop, which causes black or dark blotches in the floor. It may also greatly increase drying time of the oil.
  • Leave the oil to absorb for a short period of time before thoroughly buffing with a cloth and then removing the oil from the surrounding area with a clean, dry cloth.
  • Deeper scratches or gouges should be sanded until they are no longer visible. Do not use a sand paper that is too fine. An 80-100 grit sandpaper will usually suffice, then clean the spot with lukewarm water and let dry completely. Then follow directions for light scratches above.
  • Whenever an area of the floor has been cleaned or repaired with new oil, it is important to remove all new oil from the surrounding area. This is easily done using a polishing cloth or a cotton rag, which then allows both areas to blend by having approximately the same sheen level. If necessary, steel wool can also be used to eliminate the “halo” effect of a slightly higher gloss level in the area around the repair.

Warning! Rags, pads or waste soaked with WOCA oil may self-ignite if improperly discarded. Immediately after use, place all rags and waste in a sealed, water filled bucket for proper disposal.
