How to Care for Your Duchateau Hard-Wax Oil Floor

New Duchateau Oil Finished hardwood floors will require both products to keep it properly maintained long term but the Cleaner Protectant is the first item you should purchase for regular cleaning. Duchateau cleaner protectant is a concentrated solution that dilutes with water for use. Always use a two bucket system - one bucket for cleaning solution and the other for rinse water. Follow use instructions provided by Duchateau. Use a self-wringing, no-fray cotton string mop like the Libman Big Tornado Mop or use a household sponge mop. Mop should be new so it does not contain other types of cleaning solutions that may be incompatible with your oil finished floor. Thoroughly rinse mop and let it dry between uses. Always wring mop tightly while cleaning oiled floors so floor is not saturated and cleaning solution does not puddle on floor. Cleaning frequency will depend on foot traffic and whether the floor is in a residential or commercial space. Never use microfiber cloths or pads on your oil finished hardwood floors.
