How to Maintain with Rubio Monocoat Oil

One of our most popular options, and if you know how to care for a Rubio finish, you will be able to enjoy your timber flooring for longer.


Once the Monocoat finish is fully cured, it is recommended to clean it using only Monocoat-approved products.

Before the curing process, you can dry mop or vacuum the surface.


After curing:

Surface Care Spray: This ready-to-use cleaner leaves no residue.

Natural Soap: A concentrated version of the Surface Care Spray, which should be diluted before use.


Curing Time

Oil Plus & 2C Part A: 21 days

Oil Plus 2C A&B: 7 days

UV Oil: Upon installation


Restoration & Rejuvenation

Restoration is a simple process that can be carried out at any time. Most residents choose to restore their surfaces every 3-5 years, while commercial spaces may require restoration every 1-3 years due to higher traffic wear.

Recommended products for restoration:

Refresh: Used to restore the surface texture of the finish.

Universal Maintenance Oil: Protects and refreshes the oiled wooden surface, while adding a soft satin luster to the timber finish.


Spot Repairs

Monocoat's natural oil finish bonding technology allows for localized touch-ups of minor damages and scratches.


  1. Sand the damaged area to expose the raw wood underneath.

  2. Dampen the area with water and allow it to dry.

  3. Apply oil to the damaged area using a cotton cloth, blending the color to match the surrounding finish.

  4. Let the oil react for 10 minutes, then wipe off the excess oil with a cloth.

For very minor scratches, follow the same instructions but skip the sanding step.
