    Wood-Fresh Gloss Floor Finish

    The Wood Floor Preservation system is designed to preserve a hardwood floor that is already in fairly good condition, but the customer wants to keep it that way. It is designed for floors simply needing to be cleaned and brightened up with light coats of the Wood-Fresh Finish.

    Features and Benefits of Wood Floor Preservation Finishes:

    • Hardwood Preservation Finish (Gloss or Satin) is a low solid blend of urethane and acrylic polymers designed to be used as a preservation finish over an existing urethane finish on a hardwood floor that has been properly cleaned and prepared.
    • The Wood-Fresh Wood Floor Preservation finish serves as the wear coat and protects the original finish of the floor.
    • The Wood-Fresh Wood Floor Preservation finish is extremely easy to use, applies easily and smoothly with excellent leveling.
    • Most finishes from the factory and those applied to new raw wood will have a satin finish.
    • The customer should be aware that the gloss finish will show slightly more imperfections such as scuffs and microscratches as it wears than the satin finish .
    • It’s helpful to have some pieces of wood flooring you’ve prepared to show the customer the difference.

    Bane-Clene carries two wood floor care system: Wood-Solv™ and the Wood Floor Preservation System. How do these two wood care and refinishing systems differ and where is each used?

    • The key difference between the Wood-Fresh Wood Floor Preservation system and the Wood-Solv restoration system lies in the two words “preservation” and “restoration”.
    • Because the Wood Floor Preservation system is so easy to use, we encourage professionals who’ve never worked with finishes before to start with this system before advancing to the Wood-Solv system.
    • The Wood-Solv System is designed primarily to restore a hardwood floor or laminate floor that requires repairs, is badly worn with sometimes bare wood spots or is used on a floor with very heavy use such as in some commercial applications.
    • The Wood-Solv system incorporating a CATALYZED urethane very high solids finish is harder and more durable and can even be applied to bare wood and laminate. HOWEVER, it also is “trickier” to apply and get a smooth even coat with good adhesion. Additionally, once the finish is catalyzed in the can, it has a limited life span in the can.
    • For refinishing and restoring laminate floors, floors with some exposed bare wood or severely damaged floors, Wood-Solv is the preferred system to use.
    • Because the Wood Floor Preservation System is NOT designed for laminate floors or for hardwood floors with an aluminum oxide coating nor on bare wood, Wood-Solv is perfect for that application.

    Instructions and Directions for PREPARING for Application of Wood-Fresh Preservation Finish:


    1. Determine if there is finish on the wood by placing drops of water in several places to see if it penetrates into the wood as evidenced by darkening.
      Test for bare wood
    2. If there is no finish present (bare wood), do not use the water-based wood floor preservation system - use the Wood-Solv system instead.
    3. Test the floor whether it is coated with aluminum oxide. In an inconspicuous area, lightly abrade the floor with sandpaper.
    4. If the floor is unaffected, it is coated with aluminum oxide - use the Wood-Solv system instead.
    5. Be aware that many such floors carry a warranty that is voided if a finish is applied to it.
    6. Inspect the floor for damage to the wood and the existing finish.
    7. Also check for wax, oil and soap coatings such as Orange Glo, Murphey® Oil Soap, Holloway House®, Mop & Glo®, etc.
    8. Apply a small amount of alcohol on a towel and apply to an inconspicuous area that the customer has been “cleaning”. If the finish comes off or turns cloudy, the “gunk” must be removed before proceeding. No water-based finish, including Wood Preservation Finish, will adhere to waxes or oils.
    9. The preinspection and prequalification step is essential for the success of each job. The system emphasizes the importance of preserving the original finish, so hopefully the customer will never have to go through the messy process of sanding and recoating their hardwood. This system does not make damaged or heavily scratched floors look like new. Floors in that condition should be restored using the Wood-Solv process or may need to be sanded or screened and refinished.

    Prepare the floor:

    1. Keep out of reach of children.
    2. Read label directions and cautions before using.
    3. Always test on a hidden or inconspicuous area first.
    4. Move out any furniture or other objects that may be in the way.
    5. If doing this job in an industrial or commercial setting, set out your Caution Signs and Caution Pads.
      Caution signs to avoid slipping
    6. Dust mop or vacuum (without the beater bar) the floor thoroughly.
    7. Mask off floor vents, baseboards and transitions from wood to other types of floors and with masking tape.
      Mask off areas with tape
    8. Mix 4 parts water to 1 part Wood Fresh Hardwood Cleaner in a sprayer.
    9. Spray a light mist application to a small section of the floor (about 10x10). Do not allow the cleaner to dry before cleaning. With a low speed floor machine (175 rpm), scrub the floor with a maroon floor pad. Because this is a inch pad, it is best to place a white floor pad between the maroon pad and the driver block to offer cushioning and prevent any damage to the floor as shown here.

    10. Do not allow the cleaner to dry before cleaning.
    11. Wipe up residue as you go the Wood-Solv mop cover or the Microfiber Wood Finish Applicator Mop.
    12. Be careful not to over-apply Wood Fresh Hardwood Cleaner as excess water on the floor can cause damage.
    13. The scrubbing action will loosen and remove soil build-up as well as the surface of the old finish, leaving a surface that has a slightly rough feel. This new surface will readily accept and bond to the Hardwood Preservation Finish. NOTE: Aluminum oxide coated floors will not be abraded; therefore, the finish will not adhere!
    14. Mop the floor with a Wood-Solv mop cover or a Microfiber Wood Finish Applicator Mop to absorb the Wood Fresh Hardwood Cleaner and the released soil. Repeat this mopping procedure a second time.
    15. Spray the floor with a light coat of Wood Fresh Hardwood Cleaner and buff the floor with your floor machine and a cotton bonnet (absorbent pad).
    16. While wearing shoe booties, go over the floor a final time with a damp clean terry cloth cover attached to the applicator. This will remove any dust or lint before applying finish.
    17. In corners and along the edges of the floor, you will need to accomplish the above procedures by hand. You may remove the center portion of the maroon pad or use a Doodle Bug scrubbing pad for this handwork.
    18. You are now ready to apply Hardwood Preservation Finish as soon as the floor is dry. Depending on conditions, this could take up to 1 hour.

    Instructions and Directions for APPLYING Wood-Fresh Preservation Finish:

    1. Keep out of reach of children.
    2. Read label directions and cautions before using.
    3. Always test on a hidden or inconspicuous area first.
    4. If applying the satin finish, 30 minutes prior to applying the finish, the container should be gently rocked to mix the ingredients.
    5. Apply finish with the Corner Edger Applicator or the Microfiber Wood Finish Applicator Mop.
    6. Corners and edges: Using the Corner Edger Applicator, apply Wood Finish to edges and corners by hand.
    7. Apply the finish about an hour after the abrasion cleaning system is completed. The abrasion cleaning system leaves the hardwood floor damp making necessary a dry time of about an hour.
      Applying the Preservation Finish
    8. Avoid creating bubbles when applying the finish.
    9. Start in the furthest area from your exit. Apply a small amount of finish in a 4 or 5 foot area, spreading it uniformly as you work your way back toward the exit door.
    10. To apply, use the Corner Edger Applicator or the Microfiber Wood Finish Applicator Mop. Once the floor has dried naturally for approximately 45 minutes, a second coat of finish is then applied and also allowed to dry naturally. DO NOT force dry the finish.
    11. The end result is a clean, refinished and rejuvenated wood floor and a happy customer.
