Maintaining your Timber floor with Rubio Maintenance Oil

You can apply this yourself - but we would recommend a slow speed buffer!


There are some great You Tube videos on the subject!




RMC Universal Maintenance Oil is universal maintenance oil used for protecting and refreshing the colour of oiled wooden surfaces. The maintenance frequency depends on the intensity of the floor traffic. It is advisable to apply this treatment just before the colour fades. 




No professional expertise is required to treat your floor with RMC Universal Maintenance Oil.


1. Eliminate dirt and dust from the floor. 


2. Clean the floor thoroughly with Rubio Monocoat Soap and water. Rinse well with water to eliminate any soap residues. Leave it to dry completely.

3. Manual application – Apply the oil using a doodle bug mop and white pad is the best. Mechanical application – Apply the oil using a floor polisher and a beige (or white) coloured pad. Treat areas approx preferably 2 to 4 m2. Buff off with a white pad. Each treated area should buffed dry using a lint free cotton cloth within 15 minutes. When using a floor polisher, wipe dry using a white pad.


 4. The floor should be dry after 6 - 8 hours (start in the morning and leave for the day.  Dry time will depend upon the season and aspect of your home)


The great thing about oil is that most issues can be addressed without any problems.
