Blanchon Wood Floor Maintenance Guides

Maintaining a wood floor finished with Blanchon Wood Floor Oil Environment

Light traffic area

Cleaning
Vacuum the floor on a regular basis. From time to time, spray Blanchon LAGOON (ready-to-use neutral cleaner) on the floor and wipe using a micro-fibre mop. Do not use products containing ammonia, abrasive or silicone.

Maintenance
Once or twice a year, depending of the amount of traffic, apply a thin coat of WOOD FLOOR OIL ENVIRONMENT Special Maintenance with a micro-fibre mop or a fine and clean cotton cloth. Allow the floor to dry 30 minutes before reusing the room.

Local renovation
Where the floor is damaged (stain, scratch, cigarette burns, etc.) sand slightly using a fine sand paper to remove the damage then apply 1 or 2 coats of WOOD FLOOR OIL ENVIRONMENT Special Maintenance with a cotton cloth. For a perfect finish, apply a thin coat over the whole floor with a micro-fibre mop. Allow the floor to dry 30 minutes before returning to use.

Major renovation
Give the whole floor a light sanding, carefully vacuum the dust and apply a thin coat of WOOD FLOOR OIL ENVIRONMENT with a short-hair roller. Allow the floor to dry 12 hours before returning to use.

MAINTENANCE AND RENOVATION OF A VERY HEAVY TRAFFIC AREA FINISHED WITH BLANCHON HARD WAXOIL

Regular maintenance
Vacuum on a regular basis. Wipe the floor with a damp mop (never a soaking wet one) every 2 days or so with the NATURAL SOAP for OILED WOOD FLOORS. Before use, dilute 250 mL of the product in 10 litres of water. Avoid ammoniated, abrasive and silicone products.

Specific maintenance
Twice a month (or even once a week in case of very heavy traffic), apply 1 coat of Hard Waxoil Maintenance using the spray method: use a spray and buff right after the application with a buffing machine fitted with a beige pad* or a cotton cloth. Allow the wood floor to dry 1-3 hours before returning to service.

Renovation
Damaged areas (satins, scratches, burns, impacts, etc.) will be sanded slightly using a fine sandpaper followed by an application of Natural Hard Waxoil using a spray. Buff immediately with a buffing machine fitted with a beige pad or a cotton cloth. Allow the wood floor to dry 3-5 hours before returning to service.

in very dirty areas, use the same procedure but with a green pad under the buffing machine instead of a beige one.
