Maintain Live Natural oiled floors

Initial care

For initial care we recommend that you apply BOEN Oil Freshen Up when you first get the floor. Apply undiluted with a lint-free cloth to the floor. Leave the surface to dry and then polish it.

Daily cleaning of Live Natural Oiled floors should be carried out dry with a broom or vacuum cleaner. For regular cleaning with a mop, pour BOEN Floor Soap into water and clean the floor with a damp mop. For dirtier floors, the dosage can be increased.


Apply BOEN Oil Freshen Up to your oiled hardwood floor from time to time; this applies particularly to floors that are placed under great strain and cleaned often. This care product will make oiled surfaces robust and damaged surfaces will have a silky matt natural shine again. Before applying, the floor should be dry and free of dirt. Apply Oil Freshen Up with a lint-free cloth. Leave the surface to dry and then polish it.

How often should this product be applied?

For floors subject to low stress, e.g. in bedrooms and living rooms: approx. 1–2 times a year. For floors subject to medium stress, e.g. in corridors or offices with people coming and going: approx. once a month depending on frequency of use.

Intensive cleaning and spot removal

For intensive cleaning of very dirty floors, use BOEN Floor Soap in a higher mix ratio. Clean the floor thoroughly using this concentrated soap solution and then mop it with clean water in order to remove remnants of dirt and soap from the surface. Once your floor is completely dry, oil it with BOEN Natural Oil. To remove deeper spots or scratches, we offer a repair set.

Important note

When you see signs of wear and tear, we recommend that you treat them as soon as possible using BOEN Natural Oil in order to preserve the intact surface over the long term. However, make sure you clean the floor intensively first as described above.
