Wood Cleaner Application
For Unfinished and Soap Finished Wood
Mix 150 milliliters of cleaner with 5 liters of lukewarm water and scrub the floor with a brush or pad or a floor machine if the floor is particularly dirty. Wipe the floor clean with a mop or cloth and repeat if needed.
Soaped surfaces have a protective layer that is removed with the cleaner. So, after floor is dry use WOCA Natural Soap as a necessary second step.
Oiled Wood and Parquet Flooring
The instructions are the same as the soap finished wood, except planks with little wear can be cleaned with natural soap, but places of heavier wear should be maintained with WOCA maintenance paste or oil.
