WOCA (TRIP TRAP) PREP INSTRUCTIONS FOR UNFINISHED FLOORS

WOCA Wood Cleaner is used to prep wood floors to accept oil. The cleaner is made to open the wood grain to accept as much oil as possible.

Remember that the base coat of oil absorbs into the wood. You are not only cleaning the wood, but also opening the grain and neutralizing tannic acid and floating color pigments to a certain extent, which can mingle with the oil and prevent areas of the floor from becoming fully water resistant and may later cause water to “spot” on the oiled surface.

Change the rinse water as it becomes discolored or dirty, especially with dark species. By keeping the rinse water clean, the cleaning solution will last longer. Change the cleaning solution also, as it becomes discolored or dirty. If you miss any part of the floor, YOU WILL HAVE A SLICK SPOT!

Use a high quality swep mop, such as the WOCA Swep Mop, which has no loose ends.

Mixing solution should be:

Two gallons of warm water + 6.4 oz. (just over ¾ cup) of Wood Cleaner.

Three gallons of warm water + 9.6 oz. (just under 1 ¼ cups) of Wood Cleaner.

Four gallons of warm water + 12.8 oz. (just over 1 ½ cups) of Wood Cleaner.

* Mix in one bucket the solution of Wood Cleaner and warm water. In a second bucket, pour warm water.

* Dip a clean mop in the solution. Wring the mop. The mop head should retain enough moisture to dampen a 5’ x 8’ section of flooring. Spread the solution across the work area, then mop the wet area as you would a vinyl kitchen floor.

With Merbau, Brazilian Cherry, Walnut and other dark species and White Oak scrub the wood as you would a very dirty vinyl floor ( elbow grease).

* Dip the mop into the bucket of warm water. Slosh around very well. Wring the mop head as completely as possible. This will remove dirty water and keep the mop head clean. Do not rinse the previously mopped area.

* Dip the cleaned mop into the bucket with the cleaner solution and wring. Prep the next section.

* Repeat the process until the entire floor has been cleaned.

* Allow the floor to thoroughly dry before applying oil. Most floors will dry within a few hours with good air circulation, low humidity & warm temperatures. To be sure that the floor is completely dry, consider letting the floor sit overnight after being prepped.

With Merbau , Brazilian Cherry, Walnut and other dark species, repeat the prep process. A second prep can be done immediately and is necessary to ensure that the floating color pigments are cleaned from the wood.

If you apply oil before the floor is completely dry, the oil could stay tacky and not cure. If the oil hardens, moisture eventually will try to escape and will be trapped under the hardened oil. You will get mildew under the oil! You should be able to prep 1,000 sq. ft. within 1 hour. Use several mops on darker and larger floors if you want to speed up the process.
