Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner Intensive cleaning and refreshing: especially designed for initial cleaning, occasionally refreshing and maintenance of floors treated with Osmo Polyx®-Oil. Based on natural waxes - regenerates and cleans the surface at the same time. Higher tread areas such as door entrances and hallways can appear duller through the course of years.
Wooden Floor Maintenance - Oil Finished Floors
From time to time your wooden floor will need to be refreshed. This will regenerate the top coat of oil and will preserve the character and beauty of your wooden floor. The interval for refreshing your floor depends on its usage. In bars, restaurants and commercial areas the interval for refreshing will be shorter than for normal domestic areas.
A good product to use is Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner. Also available as Liquid Wax Cleaner White for white floors. It should be used in conjunction with Osmo Opti-Set and the active fibre cloth. On larger areas a buffing machine is recommended for an efficient application.

RENOVATION AND REFINISHING
Many floors a lack a minimum of care and maintenance. But even the best cared oiled floor which I've seen showed at one point signs of wear. For many years nobody stepped with hard shoes over that floor and it was regularly cleaned with dedicated products. Yet it was showing in need of a new coat of oil. One of the great advantages of oil finished floors is that, unlike traditional lacquers and varnishes, they can be repaired or finished without the need for sanding.
First the floor needs a thorough cleaning.
The application can be done as a DIY activity or professionally for larger surfaces or more complicated requirements like coloured floors or very worn ones where dirt managed to get into the grains. Our recommendation is Osmo Polyx-Oil.
Manual application: Apply a thin coat of Osmo Polyx-Oil with either the Osmo Floor Brush or the Floor Roller Set. Leave it to properly cure until stepping over. You may read the technical chart for more information.
Mechanical application: A buffing machine will be used to firstly intensively clean the wooden floor and then apply the Polyx-Oil to the floor.
Please consider that all the above are not applicable for UV oiled floors as the new oil will create stains in reaction with the old one. Unfortunately these floor have to be sanded to remove the old layer of oil.
