Noble Castle Hard Wax Floor Maintenance and Care Instructions

RESIDENTIAL

After installation it is important to thoroughly clean the flooring of all dust dirt and debris. 

In some cases added protection may be desired. In these cases a flooring professional can apply an additional coat of OSMO PolyX 3054 after the flooring has been cleaned as described above.

ONGOING GENERAL CARE & MAINTENANCE 

Regular Daily Dry Cleaning:

For day to day cleaning of dust and loose dirt you should use sweep daily or as necessary. Use either a soft bristled broom, a vacuum cleaner WITHOUT a beater bar.

Regular Damp Cleaning:

For spills and other stubborn dirt and stains and regular damp cleaning, use the Osmo "Wash and Care" concentrate. OSMO "Wash and Care" is specifically formulated for your OSMO finished floor and removes most day to day stains from your wood floor simply and easily.  

Osmo "Wash and Care" is normally diluted at a rate of 1 cap full per 1 quart on water and sprayed on the surfaces or applied with a micro fiber mop. For heavier stains, OSMO "Wash and Care" can be used in a more concentrated from to suit the level of soiling.

The Oils that are contained in Osmo "Wash and Care" help to regenerate the wood surface and should be the ONLY product used to clean your floor. DO NOT use other cleaners designed for urethane finished floors.

Periodical Refreshing & Intensive Cleaning: 

Over time, you may see some dulling of the surface of your floor, especially in high traffic areas. To refresh those dull looking floor surface areas, use Osmo Liquid Wax CleanerOSMO Liquid Wax Cleaner is designed specifically to refresh and renew the surface.  

First, clean the surface with OSMO "Wash and Care". Then simply apply a thin layer of Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner  using an active micro fiber pad. For larger areas, you or a flooring professional can apply using a buffing machine following the OSMO instructions.

For white finished floors Osmo also offers a Liquid Wax Cleaner in white (3087).

To clean very heavily soiled surfaces Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner should be applied in small amounts directly to the affected area.

Protective Surface Renewal:

To retain the original surface properties over years you must renew the worn surface areas using various Osmo Polyx-Oil products (appropriate to the original finish). This is typically best done by a floor finish professional. The frequency of this renewal will be dependent on many factors including your life style, location, children, pets, etc. The more use the floor receives, the more you will likely renew that surface.  

First clean the floor surface thoroughly using the OSMO products as above. Allow to dry thoroughly and then apply a very thin coat of Osmo Polyx-Oil. Allow to dry overnight.
