A UV Oiled finish is similar in many ways to a matt varnish as the oil is hardened under UV lights during the finishing process. Eventually the surface will wear down similar to a varnish.
1. Immediately after installation
We recommend an application of WOCA Oil Refresher as first treatment immediately after installation. This comes in a ready mixed 750ml spray (covers 60m2). These can be applied simply using a rectangular/ square cotton cover mop(spray) or a mop and bucket (2.5 Litre concentrate). If the flooring has gotten dirty during renovation. Please use Woca Wood Cleaner the day before the Oil Refresher is first applied.
Woca Wood Cleaner is a high strength intensive cleaner and is not for general/regular cleaning. It should only be used as outlined above.
2. Ongoing cleaning & care
Ongoing regular cleaning should be carried out using Woca Soap. This can be applied simply using a rectangular/ square cotton cover mop（spray) or a mop and bucket (2.5 Litre concentrate). The 750ml DIY Ready Mixed Woca Soap is pre-mixed and ready to use (covers 60m2). This is very much geared for DIY application. The 2.5L soap concentrate is mixed with wate in a bucket and covers 250-300m2.
