How to Maintain with Synteko Solid Oil

Synteko solid is a penetrating oil that soaks into the wood and hardens into a protective coating and required a different way of cleaning and maintaining

Important Guidelines for a New Floor:

After applying a fresh coat, allow 24-48 hours for the floor to cure completely.

For the first 4-5 weeks:

  • Avoid tracking dirt and water spillage onto the floor.

  • After the initial 24-48 hour cure, limit traffic to very light use.

Regular Maintenance:

  • Use an electrostatic sweep mop to regularly sweep the entire finished area. Removing dirt and dust is crucial for maintaining the pristine finish.

  • In case of spills, clean them up promptly using a cloth dampened with a 1:20 diluted solution of Synteko soap 1617 and warm water.

  • For stubborn stains, dilute Synteko Remover 1692 or use Synteko Recover 1620, followed by Synteko soap for particularly stubborn stains.

Periodic Maintenance:

  • Clean the floor by mopping with a damp cloth soaked in a 1:100 dilution of Synteko Remover 1692 and warm water.

  • Allow the floor to dry and then apply Synteko Recover 1620 to the cleaned area. Buff it in with a polishing buffer machine using a red pad. Note that new red pads may absorb some oil initially.

  • After 20 minutes, polish the surface with a dry, non-flocculent cloth or a white pad.

  • In heavy traffic areas, consider applying an additional coat of Synteko Recover 1620 for added protection.
