THE PERFECT APPEARANCE

 

No matter in which room it'll be installed, the incomparable surface appearance of a solid wood floor gives to every room a special, cozy atmosphere. In order to have unlimited pleasure with your FEEL WOOD solid floor, please pay attention, that oiled floors should be regularly maintened - normally once a year, but more often when it comes to floors exposed to extremely hard wear.


FIRST CARE IMMEDIATELY AFTER INSTALLATION

The FEEL WOOD solid wood flooring is mainly delivered with a finished surface, e. g. , oiled with natural oil. On site and also during installation of course it may come to dirtying.
In order to have unlimited pleasure with FEEL WOOD solid floor, to provide a perfect appearance in the new place and highlight its natural beauty, we recommend you to make a simple first care immediately after installation:

 

1. Dry cleaning

Always at first start with dry cleaning with a powerful vacuum cleaner. In case of contamination, which may occur during the installation or in vicinity of a construction site, an additional wet cleaning may be recommended. 

2. Wet cleaning with FEEL WOOD Natural Woodfloor Soap
For five litres of water add appr. 50 ml (1/2 yogurt-cup) soap. Wipe the floor well with this solution and a wrung cotton wipe. For larger areas or very dirty, use two buckets, so you could wash out the dirty wipe in clear water before you apply the soap solution as a protection on the floor again. The floor must be absolutely dry before the next step - re-oiling, therefore let it dry for about eight hours!

3. Re-oiling with FEEL WOOD-Maintenance oil

Distribute and blur with a floormop. After the floor has already been oiled in the factory, it absorbs just a  little bit of oil - it's more about "the outer oiling" to create an optical effect of a new floor. 

CAUTION:
Towels, cleaning paper, sponges, etc., soaked with FEEL WOOD-care-oil, to be dried spread-out well, or kept well sealed in a tin (can) until completely dried. Risk of spontaneous combustion (catching fire) by oxidatively drying natural oils!

 

MAINTENANCE

Depending on the loading, a natural oiled wooden floor in the living area in addition to the regular cleaning should be extensively maintained at least once a year. For surfaces with heavy loading in objects area this maintenance interval should be shortened.
