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

On a New floor please remember:

  • After a fresh new coat is applied, please allow a 24- 48 hour timeframe to cure.

  • Avoid tracking dirt, water spillage for the first 4-5 weeks

  • After the initial 24- 48 hour cure, very light traffic is possible.

  • Regular Maintenance

  • As often as possible, the entire finished area should be swept with an electrostatic sweep mop.

  • The removal of dirt and dust is a key component in keeping the finish pristine.

  • Whenever a spillage occurs, please use a 1:20 diluted Synteko soap 1617 with warm water and with a well wrung cloth, clean up the spill

  • Use Synteko Remover 1692 diluted with warm water or Synteko Recover 1620 for stubborn stains proceeded by Synteko soap for stubborn stains.

  • Periodic Maintenance

  • Clean the floor with a damp mop with Synteko Remover 1692 diluted with warm water at 1:100.

  • Allow to dry then recoat the clean area with Synteko Recover 1620 buffed in with a polishing buffer machine using a red pad (note: new red pads will absorb a certain amount of oil)

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

  • On heavy traffic areas, it may be required to apply an extra Recover 1620 for additional protection.
