Fuzion Oil Finished Wood Floors – Naturally!

A guide to understanding and taking care of your natural oil finished floors.

Natural oil finishes require a bit more attention to on-going after care than a urethane finished floor, but the advantage is that the lifetime of the wood is significantly extended. The floor gets more beautiful as time goes by. The investment made in care and maintenance is regained in no extra costs, compared with a urethane finish having to be repaired, sanded, refinished, or even replaced. It is a simple process.

After Installation:

Immediately after installing a Fuzion Wood Floor with Natural Oil finish, it should be first vacuumed, and then cleaned with WOCA brand Natural Soap. This will clean away any embedded dust or grime from the installation process and leave a protective coating that will enhance the overall appearance of the floor. This is a simple mop-on–mop-off process. See instruction pamphlet for directions. There are 2 colours of natural soap – natural and white. Check with your Fuzion Flooring dealer for the correct one.

Day to Day Care:

Day to day care can now be established. Regular vacuuming or sweeping is recommended. Use WOCA brand Natural Soap for thorough cleaning as required. This can be done to spot treat spills or stains, or to clean individual areas, or for cleaning the entire floor. Individual cleaning requirements will vary depending on the room it is in and how much traffic the floor receives.

Annual Care:

WOCA Oil Refresher combines efficient cleaning with re-oiling, as additional oil penetrates into the wood forming a protective layer on the surface. This is done to rejuvenate the protection of the floor, and brighten its appearance. This can be done on a spot basis or a room-to-room basis. No moving of furniture or other items on the floor is necessary. Only refresh the areas that need it. This is also a mop-on-mop-off system that uses either a natural or white oil refresher depending on the floor style used. This step does require a 2 hour curing time…. (Fyi – it’s actually dry in 30 min). The floor can then be buffed or polished after this step if a light shine is desired.

Using these simple steps will ensure your Fuzion Wood Floor looks its best, and lasts a lifetime!

WOCA oil products are all approved by, and meet some of the highest manufacturing standards and certifications for both indoor air quality, and environmental responsibility.

 

Hard Wax Oil Finish – The Next Generation of Oil Finishes.

The new Hard Wax Oil finish found on the Fuzion Northern Retreat product line is an innovative 3 layer oil finish that is air dried. The oil more easily penetrates deeply into the wood pores, which gives it more strength and protection from moisture and dirt. The natural carnauba waxes in the oil create a hard protective film on the wood surface. Along with various surface treatment techniques like wire brushing or hand-scraping, the Hard Wax Oil brings out the natural texture and beauty of the wood.

Repair:

Hard Wax Oil finish is distinguished by its ease of repair-ability. The procedure does not require boards to be replaced or for the entire floor to be refinished. In the case of scratches or minor damages, the surface can be restored simply by adding more WOCA Oil Refresher.

The life of a hardwood floor finished with Hard Wax Oil finish depends on the timely care and maintenance of the finish. With proper adherence to all recommendations regarding floor maintenance, hardwood floors with Hard Wax Oil finish will last a lifetime.
