Monocoat Finish

This information is also available on Monocoat’s website at http://www.monocoat.us/floor-care/

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
Available here - http://www.monocoat.us/Refresh/
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.

Everlast Satin Varnish Finish

Everlast Satin Varnish is our lowest maintenance and most durable finish.

Cleaning: The best way to clean and maintain your Everlast Satin Varnish finish is with a water/vinegar mix in a spray bottle. - Avoid harsh chemical cleaners and off-the-shelf store bought cleaners because these can wear down the finish over time.

Polishing: Nearly any type of furniture polish will work well on this finish. Our preferred treatment over this finish is Danish oil (we use the Watco brand) because the resins in Danish Oil add strength to the finish. Danish Oil also gives the finish a nice, low sheen glow. Danish oil has a bit of an odor when applied, so it's best to wait until you won't need the room for 1 day before using Danish oil to polish your countertop.
