… to clean your floor with WOCA Wood Cleaner before basic treatment, regardless of the flooring type or surface treatment. WOCA Wood Cleaner efficiently removes dirt, grease, soap- and oil residues from the surface, while enhancing the quality of the following soap-, oil- or lacquer treatment at the same time.
It is important to carefully consider what product to use, when you decide to clean your wood floor, as you can easily end up with an unwanted result if you use common household items instead of a Wood Cleaner. The pH value in some common household items is very high, which can cause discoloration of the wood – especially oak wood.
WOCA Wood Cleaner, on the other hand, is specially developed for the cleaning of wood surfaces, while preparing the surface for the following basic treatment.
You need to use two buckets to properly clean the floor: one bucket containing the soap solution and another bucket with pure water to rinse the mop. This method prevents the floor from getting a greyish gleam caused by dirty water. Has the floor already been affected, a thorough clean with WOCA Wood Cleaner can resolve the problem and remove the dirt from the surface.
The problem may be an excessive dosage of soap. The content in our different WOCA soaps has been carefully combined to achieve a perfect texture and quality. So even though you think, you are doing the floor a favour, it is very important to mix the soap with water as recommended on the label. Clean the floor with pure, lukewarm water (without soap) and the footprints will disappear again.
Maintaining an oiled floor is now easier than ever. The solution is called WOCA Oil Care.
WOCA Oil Care can be applied manually without using a polishing machine. All you need is a WOCA Wool Pad or cotton cloth. The Oil Care dries extremely fast and the floor can already be used with caution after approx. one hour. WOCA Oil Care provides the floor with additional hard wearing properties in the upper pore layer, while providing the floor with a beautiful, mat appearance at the same time.
The best result is obtained by combining the daily cleaning and maintenance of the oiled floor with WOCA Oil Refresher. This soap cleans the floor efficiently, while adding some extra oil to the surface at the same time.
Please notice: WOCA Oil Care can only be used on areas, where the oiled surface is intact. If the floor appears dried out, WOCA Oil Care cannot be applied. In that case, the floor needs to be sanded and oiled once again.
The use of WOCA Wood Cleaner can reduce surface tensions in any wood floor. Surface tensions are present, when a basic treatment or maintenance product do not penetrate into the wood. It is often seen with new and dried-out wood floors. A thorough cleaning with WOCA Wood Cleaner reduces the surface tensions, so the following treatment can be done with great result.
WOCA Vinyl- and Lacquer Care leaves a microscopic, protective film on the surface and repairs the tiny scratches that cannot be seen with the naked eye. The scratches appear as mat areas on the surface when exposed in the light flowing through windows. WOCA Vinyl- and Lacquer Care can also reduce some of the severe wear under tables, caused by chairs being pulled back and forth, while providing the floor with a fine, mat appearance.
If you decide to clean your lacquered floor with a cleaning solution with a high pH-value, this will slowly damage the lacquer in the long run and leave the floor unprotected. Instead, the cleaning must be done with a specially developed soap, such as WOCA Vinyl- and Lacquer Soap. This pH-neutral soap efficiently removes dirt and grease from the surface without affecting the actual lacquer finish.
WOCA Natural Soap is ideal for the ongoing cleaning of oiled wood floors. The soap removes the dirt while creating a new microscopic, breathable soap film on the surface. We recommend doing a combined cleaning of the floor by using WOCA Oil Refresher approx. every fourth time. The Oil Refresher combines efficient cleaning with re-oiling as well as saturating the pores of wood, while maintaining the natural glow and colour of the wood.
Many people consider soap flakes to be a wonderful cleaning product at home for a variety of things. However, this product does not have a beneficial effect on wood. Soap flakes basically degrease and dry out the wood, while weakening the natural properties of the wood. Subsequently the risk of splits is increased radically.
