How do I maintain an oiled wood floor?
Cleaning and maintaining an oiled wood floor
Regular cleaning of your oiled wood floor will keep it looking its best. Maintaining your floor in the correct way is essential, as the oil it has been treated with has specific needs compared to other finishes.
One of the most important rules is to never use steam cleaners or scrubber dryers.
Follow these simple steps to keep your floor looking its best
You’ll need a vacuum, scissor mop, or soft bristled brush for this, and we recommend that you do this daily. This is important, as it removes any abrasive particles of grit or dirt which can scratch the floor when trafficked under footwear, furniture legs, or other items are moved across the floor. A useful tip is to clean with the grain of the floor to remove any trapped dust.
We recommend that you do this weekly at least. Use Osmo Wash and Care, just slightly dampening the mop. Then mop dry any excess moisture, as this will avoid penetration into joints of floor boards. Regular use will enhance your floor’s resistance to dirt and signs of wear.
Refreshing the finish
When there are noticeable signs of wear, we recommend that you try Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner, thinly applied with a pad or cloth. With light buffing, it cleans and refreshes all in one due to its natural oils and hard waxes.
For a more intensive clean to remove interior and exterior dirt and stains, we recommend using Osmo Intensive Cleaner, which loosens dirt and then requires wiping away with clear water. This allows for a hardwax oil to be reapplied.
How do I maintain a lacquered floor?
Cleaning and maintaining a lacquered wood floor
To keep your lacquered floor looking its best, regular cleaning and maintenance is highly advisable. Not only that, but using the correct products is a must. Lacquered floors have specific needs compared to other types of finish.
One golden rule is to never use steam cleaners or scrubber dryers on a lacquered floor.
Follow these simple steps to keep your floor at its best
We suggest that you use a vacuum, scissor mop, or soft bristled broom daily, to ensure that abrasive particles of grit and dirt are removed. This will help avoid scratching the floor seal. One useful tip is to wipe along the grain of your floor, as this will most effectively remove any trapped dust.
Try to do this weekly at the least. Using a floor cleaning product like Bona Parquet Cleaner and an applicator pad, or with an all in one spray mop this is quick and easy and keeps your floor looking brand new as well as protecting it against scratches and dullness. Be sure to wipe off any excess moisture after cleaning!
Intensive cleaning and refreshing
When there are noticeable signs of wear, you’ll need to occasionally use a more intensive product such as Bona Freshen Up. This is easy to do with an applicator pad or suitable mop and will revive a scratched and dull surface and provide continued protection against wear. Your floor will need approximately 2 hours to dry after this kind of treatment.
Topping up a gloss finish
How often this needs to be done depends on the amount of traffic your floor gets. You’ll need a gloss polish such as Bona Parquet Polish Gloss and will have to dry clean your floor first, then more thoroughly with Bona Cleaner. Finally, you can apply the polish with a Bona Applicator Pad. We advise that you apply this to an initial test section of the floor. Then, leave the floor to dry for at least an hour.
PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE FOR LACQUERED AND OILED FLOORS
There are precautionary measures you can take to ensure a long life for your beautiful new wood floor:
DOOR MATS- Keep a doormat both outside and inside entrance doors, this will remove
dirt and gravel before it is walked in, which will greatly reduce the wear on your floor. Ensure you clean the mats regularly to keep them effective at removing dirt and grit.
FURNITURE- Furniture legs should be fitted with felt pads to avoid unnecessary marks
and scratches on the floor. Regularly check and clean the felt feet and replace when required. Use castor cups to protect the floor from castor damage.
