Board Brokers Oil Treated Floor: Maintenance System

Floors treated with Board Brokers Hardwax Oil must be cleaned with the appropriate products in order to ensure optimal care and cleaning.To keep your Board Brokers floor looking as beautiful and natural looking as the day it was installed, we suggest the following maintenance program:

Regular Cleaning: Low Traffic Floors
Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Cleaner
Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Cleaner is a biodegradable, colorless, pH-neutral cleaner made with non-cationic and cationic tensides and nourishing natural pine oil. The pine oil feeds both the wood floor as well as the finishing layer of Board Brokers Hardwax Oil, so that the floor does not dry out when being cleaned. Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Cleaner is also suitable for cleaning varnished floors, cork, laminate, PVC and other waterproof floor coverings.

Directions:
Depending on the traffic, the floor should be cleaned regularly with the Board Brokers Dry Clean set and washed once a week with Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Cleaner. Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Cleaner is a concentrated fast-working cleaner that can be diluted 1:15 to 1:50 with water. Give the floor a slightly damp clean with the special Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Cleaner.

Note: Floors that have been cleaned with Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Cleaner can be regularly treated with Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Renewer without preparing the floor beforehand.

Regular Cleaning: High Traffic Floors
Board Brokers Wood Soap
Board Brokers Wood Soap is a natural soap for cleaning and nourishing high-traffic oiled parquet floors and plank flooring. Board Brokers Wood Soap should be used as a periodic cleaning product for oiled or untreated wood floors.

This soap solution can also be used as the final and sole treatment for wood floors such as pine/fir, oak, etc. (test first on tropical wood types).Board Brokers Wood Soap contains 5 - 15% anionogen surfactants and Perfumes. Do not use on varnished or painted floors.

Directions:
For periodic cleaning:
dry clean with Board Brokers Dry Clean Set. Dilute 30 to 50 cc Board Brokers Wood Soap in 10 L water. Then clean the hardwood floor with the Board Brokers Wood Soap solution. Rinse the microfiber cloth out regularly.

As a final treatment for soft wooden floors: Dilute 1 L in 10 L water. Apply this solution with a brush and thoroughly rub into the wood. Repeat until the floor is saturated.

Deep Cleaning
Step 1: Board Brokers Wood Soap Remover

Board Brokers Wood Soap Remover is a powerful cleaner for removing old soap layers and removing grease from heavily soiled wood floors. Board Brokers Wood Soap Remover should be used before applying Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Renewer! Only use this product on water-resistant floors that are at least 14 mm thick to avoid the risk of the wood swelling and twisting. Before using this product, you should test, at your own risk, whether this product is suitable for the floor in question.

Directions: Mix 1 L Board Brokers Wood Soap Remover in 10 L of cold water (Note: Using undiluted Board Brokers Wood Soap Remover decreases the efficacy of the product). Apply this self-acting alkaline solution with a microfiber cloth to the floor and leave to penetrate for about 5 to 10 minutes. Then scrub with a red pad. For heavily soiled floors and large surfaces, you can use a polishing machine with a black pad to clean. Then rinse with a microfiber cloth and clean water. We recommend using a wet vac. Do not leave any water behind on the wooden floor and never use too much water! Leave the floor to dry out thoroughly (at least 24 h) before treating again with Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Renewer.

Step 2: Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Renewer

Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Renewer is a periodic Renewer made with renewable raw materials such as toughening Tung oil, linseed oil, modified soy derivates and iso-paraffin. This product is used for renewing the final layer of floors treated with Board Brokers Hardwax Oil. Depending on the traffic, this product can be used once or twice per year for instance.

Directions: Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Renewer is ready to use, it is slightly thixotropic and therefore easy to work with. The surface must be clean, dry and grease-free. Floors maintained with Board Brokers Wood Soap must always be cleaned with Board Brokers Wood Soap Remover first! Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Renewer must be applied undiluted with a cotton cloth that does not shed fluff or an applicator. You should clean any equipment with Solvent. Do not mix Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Renewer with water! Board Brokers Hardwax Oil Renewer adds a new top layer to wooden floors treated with Board Brokers Hardwax Oil. To ensure an even result, apply a very thin layer. Avoid creating puddles. You can also apply topically to areas subject to traffic.
