Cleaning, Rejuvenation, Restoration and Repair of Rubio Monocoat® Natural Oil Floor Finish To preserve the matte appearance, we recommend to vacuum the floor, using a soft brush attachment, during the first three weeks after the Monocoat Oil has been applied. After three weeks the floor can be cleaned with a mixture of water and Monocoat Natural Cleaner To create a satin appearance, apply Monocoat Satin Cleaner full strength 48 hours after the Monocoat Oil was applied. Subsequently, use a mixture of water and Monocoat Satin Cleaner for periodic cleaning. Ordinary Cleaning: Vacuum the floor using a soft brush attachment. Periodic Cleaning: Floors treated with Rubio Monocoat Oil can be cleaned with water and Rubio Monocoat Natural Cleaner (retains the matte look) or Satin Cleaner (if Satin Cleaner has been applied full strength to the floor to create a satin sheen – Scroll down to Appendix A). 1. Vacuum the floor using a soft brush attachment 2. Pour 1/4 cup of Natural Cleaner or 1/2 cup of Satin Cleaner into a bucket of cold water. 3. Dampen a Terry-cloth Mop with the cleaner mixture. Clean a part of the floor. Rinse the Terry-cloth with clean water and wring it out. Repeat this routine on the rest of the floor. The Terry-cloth is reversible and machine washable. (in stock) 4. Always use a damp map not a wet mop. Do not leave any water on the floor. Let the floor dry (approx. 15 minutes) before you walk on it. Spot Cleaning: Local stains can be cleaned easily with ready-to-use “Surface Care Spray”, “LimeSpot Remover”, or “Grease Remover”. Periodic Rejuvenation: Maintaining the oil finish. This should be done only when the “luster” of the oil finish has diminished. 1. Vacuum the floor with a soft brush attachment. Damp mop the floor with Monocoat Natural Cleaner solution and allow to dry (good air movement will decrease the dry time). 2. Lightly apply the same Monocoat oil that was originally used to finish the floor with a buffer and white pad. Let the oil react for 10 minutes. 3. Buff off the excess oil with a cotton cloth under a white pad. 4. After 6 hours furniture can be put back in place. Restoration: Restoring worn floors or slightly changing the color. 1. Buff the surface with a 3M Black pad and polish with a 3M Green pad. ( these pads are in stock) 2. Sweep and vacuum to remove the dust. Dampen the floor with water. Allow to dry completely (good air movement will decrease the dry time). 3. Lightly apply the same Monocoat Oil, that was used originally to coat the floor, with a buffer and a white pad. Let it react for 10 minutes. 4. Buff off the excess oil with a cotton cloth under a white pad. 5. Use the same process if you want to change to a slightly different color. 6. After 12 hours furniture can be put back in place. Spot repairs: Repairing deep scratches and marks. 1. Sand the repair area as needed to remove damage and expose raw wood. 2. Dampen the area with water. Allow to completely dry. 3. Apply, with a cotton cloth, the same color oil that was used originally to coat the floor. 4. Let it react for 10 minutes. Wipe the excess oil off with a dampened cloth (= dampened with Monocoat Oil). Appendix A: Rubio Monocoat Satin Cleaner First Time Use: to get a soft sheen Rubio Monocoat Satin Cleaner is used to clean finished wood and when applied undiluted leaves a hardened layer of soft sheen. The initial treatment – with the undiluted product – can be done 36 hours after application of Rubio Monocoat Oil. Surfaces finished with Rubio Monocoat Oil can be cleaned periodically with a soution of ½ cup of Rubio Monocoat Satin Cleaner per gallon of water. Rubio Monocoat Satin Cleaner is just as effective when used on other oil or polyurethane finished surfaces, as well as laminate and vinyl. Sweep or vacuum the floor. Apply the soap undiluted with a Terry-cloth mop. Take care to distribute evenly. Any streaks that are noticeable will disappear after drying. Good ventilation is necessary to insure that the floor will dry within 90 minutes. To further increase the sheen level, a second layer can be applied as above, after the first layer is dry. The second layer also will dry and ready for traffic within 90 minutes. 1. 2. 3. Spot Refreshment: Rubio Monocoat Satin Cleaner Spray Sweep or vacuum the floor. Spray the product on to the surface. Spread evenly with a cloth. Allow the area 90 minutes to dry
