Maintenance of oiled hardwood floors

This is how you maintain and take care of your BOEN oiled hardwood floor.

One coat of Freshen Up

When your hardwood floor is installed and before it is used, I recommended a coat of BOEN Freshen Up. If you use BOEN Freshen Up 1-2 times a year, you will preserve the matt look and durability of your hardwood floor. If necessary, use BOEN Freshen Up more often on the most trafficked areas in your house: they are more exposed to wear and need more care.

Hardwood flooring is easy to clean

Did you know that you should actually clean your hardwood floor with water as infrequently as possible? On a daily base, it is enough to just vacuum or mop the floor. When you mop your hardwood floor use BOEN Floor Soap (synthetic soap) mixed with water. Use as small amount of water as possible so that the hardwood floor is dry within three minutes. Stubborn stains can be removed with a stronger mix of BOEN Floor Soap and water.

DO NOT use ammonia or greensoap on oak floors.
