Cleaning

The Monocoat oil finish can be cleaned once fully cured. Cleaning should only be done with the recommended Monocoat products.

Allow for the curing period as noted:
Oil Plus 2C A & B = 7 days

Prior to curing the finish can be dry mopped or dusted.

These Monocoat products are perfect for maintaining your Monocoat finish once it is fully cured:
Surface Care Spray: ready to use, non-residue cleaner 
Natural Soap: concentrated version of Surface Care Spray

Restoration & Rejuvenation

Restoration or Rejuvenation is a simple process. Most residences will do a restoration between 3–6 years. Most commercial applications will do a restoration between 1-3 years. The time frame varies greatly based on abrasion and wear.

The products for this process:
Refresh: used to restore the texture of the finish

Universal Maintenance Oil: Protects and refreshes the color of oiled wooden surfaces and adds a soft satin luster to the floor surface.

Spot Repairs

Monocoat's bonding technology allows local touch up of damaged areas or scratches -

1. Sand the repair area with 120 grit sandpaper as needed to remove damage and expose raw wood.
2. Dampen the area with water. Allow to completely dry.
3. Apply with a cotton cloth, the same color oil that was used originally to coat the countertop.
4. Let it react for 10 minutes. Wipe the excess oil off with a cloth, dampened with Monocoat Oil.

For repairing minor scratches, follow the above instructions but skip sanding.
