Maintenance Gel is for the care and maintenance of oiled indoor wooden surfaces and floors. The oil is quick-drying and leaves an attractive, water and dirt-repellent surface. Maintenance Gel is suitable for furniture, kitchen work surfaces, floors and other indoor wooden surfaces. It can also be used for improved results on factory-oiled/UV-oiled surfaces.

Instructions
Products in use
It is important that both wood and oil are at a temperature of at least 15°C, and ideally about 20°C, and that air humidity is approx. 50 %. Make sure that the room is well-ventilated, for optimal evaporation and drying time.

Always remember to test on a less visible spot to check the compatibility of the surface with the product.

  1. Thoroughly clean the surface with Intensive Wood Cleaner , mixed 1:20. Then wash with clean water. After cleaning, leave the surface to dry for at least 8-9 hours
  2. Sand the surface with 180 and vacuum clean the surface thoroughly.
  3. Apply an appropriate amount of gel to a Hand Scrubber Flex Kit White and distribute over the surface in a thin, even coat. Continue polishing until the wood seems saturated and the surface has a uniform appearance. It is recommended to work on small areas at a time, as the gel is quick-drying. For larger areas (floors larger than 4 m²) it would be advantageous to use a polishing machine.
  4. Immediately wipe down the polished surface with a clean, dry lint-free cotton cloth. When prepping with a machine, the final polishing should be done with a cotton cloth beneath the buffer. The surface should not appear wet and no excess gel should remain on the surface.
  5. If the wood does not seem fully saturated after 4-6 hours, repolish with less gel than the first treatment, but follow the same procedure.
  6. Wait 4-6 hours before using the surface. Avoid getting water or dirt on the wooden surface for the next 3 days .
When used on UV-oiled surfaces, make sure to do a more thorough final polishing to remove all excess gel.
