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.
* Natural, White and Extra White
Thoroughly clean the surface with WOCA Intensive Wood Cleaner. In case of grain raising, an advantage would be slightly to de-nib with fine sand paper (grit 180) or sanding pad (remove any sanding dust from the surface).

Apply an appropriate amount of gel to a red/white WOCA Hand Scrubber 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 10 m²) it would be advantageous to use a polishing machine.
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.
If the wood does not seem fully saturated after 4-6 hours, it would be advantageous to repolish, with less gel than the first treatment, but following the same procedure.
Wait 4-6 hours before using the surface. Avoid getting water or dirt on the wooden surface for the next 2-3 days.
For daily cleaning, use WOCA Natural Soap or WOCA Natural Soap Spray. For better floors, clean with WOCA Oil Refreshing Soap every 2-6 weeks, or when necessary.
