We can’t say this often enough. Thorough preparation is worth the effort. But we all know the feeling that time sometimes seems short, and we therefore use shorter processes every now and then to get a fast result. But if you want to achieve the best-looking and most hard-wearing results on your precious wooden floor, exclusive wooden furniture, exquisite wooden tabletop or similar, do not take the easy way out.
WOCA Intensive Wood Cleaner has been developed to help you to achieve the best final result. You are doing yourself a huge favour if you prioritize a thorough cleaning of your wooden floor and other wooden surfaces before you treat them with soap, oil or stain.
Take a look here to find out what effect Intensive Wood Cleaner will have on your end result.
Intensive Wood Cleaner effectively removes grime, grease, sanding residue and residues from the wood’s own production of saps and sugar. Intensive Wood Cleaner opens the pores of the wood, so that soap, oil or stain has better penetration, going deeper into the wood. This extends the lifetime of the wood as it becomes more saturated.
Intensive Wood Cleaner thoroughly neutralizes the natural tannic acid in the top layer of the wood. The advantage of this is that any subsequent application of soap, oil and stain will dry more quickly, achieving the desired resistance much more quickly than would otherwise be the case. Tannic acid decelerates drying time.
Wood with very high tannic acid content, such as oak, is very sensitive to discolouration. Neutralizing tannic acid by using Intensive Wood Cleaner makes it possible to reduce the risk of a final result that has suffered discolouration.
Using Intensive Wood Cleaner makes it possible to achieve greater surface colour intensity as the wood is better able to absorb the subsequent treatment. Because the wood pores are open, pigmented stains, soaps, oils and lacquers are able to penetrate deeply and more uniformly into the wood, thus producing an attractive and even colour distribution.
