Whilst Treatex Hardwax Oil offers an exceptionally durable surface it must be remembered that the base surface is wood and will therefore be liable to dent and scratch. To minimise this we recommend care be taken in the following ways.
Any objects you place on your surface such as furniture, chairs, flower and tea pots may have rough and abrasive bases – stick small rubber or felt pads to these to avoid scratching.
Do not allow liquids to stand on your surface for long periods of time. Mop up spills of water and other liquids as soon as possible. If you like to keep a washing up bottle on your wooden worktop it is best to stand it on something – to prevent any spillage sitting on the surface of the timber.
Never use bleach or aggressive cleaners on your surface.
Protect floors by using a good quality doormat to trap abrasive particles at the door.
Always use a chopping board for food preparation – cutting directly onto wooden worktops could damage the surface. Stick rubber or felt pads on the bottom of your chopping board.
This is not an exhaustive list, common sense has to be applied when using a wooden surface.
Cleaning and maintenance product for floors finished with Treatex Hardwax Oil. When your floor looks dull, clean using Treatex Floor Care, which contains vegetable oils and carnauba wax. As the surface is cleaned a thin replenishing and protective layer of wax is also applied. Dilute 25-50 ml of Treatex Floor Care in 5 litres of water. Mop the surface with this solution or use a slow buffing machine with a white pad ensuring that the mop is only damp and never wet.
It is very important to keep your floor clean – the result of people walking on a dirty and dusty floor is no different to a high-powered sander at work! Dust, dirt and grit should be regularly removed using a microfibre mop or a vacuum cleaner with a soft attachment.
If your floor looks dull wash using Treatex Floor Care, which is designed to clean and maintain floors finished with Treatex Hardwax Oil without making the surface slippery. Treatex Floor Care contains vegetable oils and carnauba wax, this means that as the floor is cleaned a thin replenishing and protective layer of wax is also applied. Treatex Floor Care has a neutral PH value and contains no solvents, other brands of cleaning products may contain detergents that could damage your floor. Treatex Floor Care is available in concentrate form or a convenient ready to use spray (Treatex Spray On Floor & Surface Cleaner).
If you are using Treatex Floor Care in its concentrate form begin by diluting 25-50ml of the product in 5 litres of water. Clean the floor with this solution using a mop, ensuring that the mop is only damp and never wet, or a slow buffing machine with a white pad. Care must be taken to mix the product to the correct ratio – making it repeatedly stronger can turn the floor slightly slippery, if this happens wash with only water 2-3 times which will correct the wax level.
Alternatively spray the floor lightly with Treatex Spray On Floor & Surface Cleaner taking care not to soak the floor. Use a cloth, mop or slow buffing machine with a white pad to clean the floor. Shake Treatex Spray On Floor & Surface Cleaner well before use.
To avoid swelling, never allow wood to remain damp or wet for any length of time.
