When your wood floor is showing a dull, matte finish, we recommend re-oiling it to freshen it up. Refreshing the finish gets rid of minor scratches and refills the pores in the wood with oil, creating an oil finish that protects against water and dirt.
Basic cleaning with Wood Cleaner
Before re-oiling the wood, it is absolutely necessary to clean the surface using Woca Wood Cleaner, which removes accumulated dirt, along with residue leftover from previous treatments with Natural Soap. This ensures that no pre-existing dirt gets mixed in during re-oiling. This normal intensive cleaning process can be done using a floor mop with a cotton head.
For especially tough stains like grease, blood, red wine, animal urine, etc., we recommend using Woca Spot Remover. Dark, black stains caused by furniture with metal feet, metal flowerpots, etc. are oxidation stains. These can be removed with the Woca Tannin Spot Remover.
To re-oil your wood floor, you will need additional equipment including pads, polishing cloths, Wood Cleaner, and oil. We can estimate the amount you'll need based on the area (in square meters) that you give us.
Machine Rental Polisher-Small
If you'd like to re-oil smaller areas of 10-20 m2 with Maintenance Oil, the handheld polisher-small is the right tool for the job. This machine is easy to operate, and you should quickly get the hang of it. When operating the polisher-small, remember to only use Woca Maintenance Oil. We recommend using the floor polisher-professional for larger areas.
Machine Rental Polisher-Professional
The floor polisher-professional can be used on larger areas, especially since the more capable machine makes the job of polishing significantly more efficient. Also, all professional oils may be used with this machine. On the other hand, using this machine properly takes some practice
Renting the machine and materials needed
We ask you to please thoroughly clean the floor polisher-small or polisher-professional after you're finished using them. Otherwise we will have to charge a cleaning fee of 50.00 CHF.
Rental machines may only be picked up at our showrooms in Zurich, Bern, Zug, and Wila. We cannot ship them by mail!
