SPC & Vinyl Floor Care & Maintenance

Your new SPC & Vinyl flooring will add warmth and beauty to your home for years to come. Following a few simple maintenance steps however, will help protect your investment.


  • Blot up spills and spots immediately (Standing moisture may penetrate into the floor causing irreversible discoloration and damages
  • Vacuum, dust mop, or sweep the floor to minimize abrasive grit and dirt. Note: Do not use vacuum with beater bars.
  • Periodically clean floor with recommended SPC & Vinyl floor cleaner such as a Bona Cleaning Kit. (Never use other cleaning products or detergents.)The manufacturer recommends a Terry Cloth style mop. For daily wiping the manufacturer recommends the use of distilled water applied to the mop with a spray bottle. (Tap water contains ingredients that may leave an unsightly film.

Protecting Your Investment

  • Your newly installed floors are real wood and therefore are subject to change from excessive moisture, or non-conforming environmental conditions. Remove any standing water immediately, and maintain an indoor relative humidity level of 35-55% throughout the year to minimize the natural expansion and contraction of wood
  • Use quality vinyl-back area rugs and doormats by outdoor entrance areas to prevent dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as but not limited to water, oil, asphalt, and driveway sealer from being tracked onto your floor
  • Use felt floor protectors and wide-bearing cylinder leg bases to minimize indentations. As a rule of thumb, the heavier the item the wider the floor protector should be. The Manufacturer does not recommend the use of wheeled furniture as they will accelerate wear not covered by this warranty.
  • Avoid gouges or cuts in your floor from sharp objects. While your newly installed floor is one of the most wear-resistant floors on the market, it is not impervious to damage.
  • Do not walk on your floor with "stiletto-style" heels; they will cause indentations.
  • Rearrange rugs and furniture periodically so the floor ages evenly. UV sunlight will change the color of different species to varying degree,
  • Keep pets' nails trimmed and filed in order to minimize indentations. Any pets' nails can damage floors.
  • Use a wide base air tire dolly when moving heavy appliances or furniture. But first, put down a sheet of quarter-inch clean plywood to protect the floor. Never try to slide or roll objects across the floor without precautions

Oiled Flooring Initial Maintenance Instructions

You will need to apply Woca brand oil refresher immediately after installation is complete.

  • Oil Refresher is an oil/soap combination used for regular cleaning and maintenance of your oil finished floors. Oil Refresher, available in natural and white, combines efficient cleaning with re-oiling as additional oil penetrates into the floor, forming a protective layer within the surface of the floor. This means longer wear before re-oiling. Oil Refresher should not be used more than four times per year as this may create unwanted build-up. Floors requiring more frequent cleaning should be cleaned with WOCA Soap (Master Soap for commercial areas) with intermittent use of Oil Refresher up to four times per year.
  • Clean your floor with WOCA Oil Refresher only when dirty.
  • The Oil Refresher solution not only cleans and nourishes oiled floors but also forms a protective film on the floor after drying, making future cleaning quicker and easier.
