Spot repairs for coloured flooring

A wooden floor treated with Hartwachs-Öl Farbig can be repaired easily – also spot repairs are possible. This is a key advantage over lacquered areas.

Here's how:

1. Separate the damaged area with masking tape.

2. Thoroughly sand the damaged area. The grit size of final sanding work should match the finished surface of the surrounding floorboards.

3. Remove sanding dust from the sanded area thoroughly with a vacuum cleaner.

4. Prepare Hartwachs-Öl Farbig or mixture of Dekorwachs and Hartwachs-Öl Original. Ensure exactly the same mixing ratio as the original coating is used.

5. Apply a thin layer of Hartwachs-Öl Farbig or mixture evenly with Osmo Mikrofaserrolle. Allow to dry for approx. 24 hours, and if the results do not match, possibly repeat the steps with a lint-free cloth. Afterwards allow to dry again.

TIP: Prior to the application, carry out a trial application on a leftover piece of flooring! Please note that the colour of the wet stain is more intense than when it is dry.

6. Once dry, apply another layer of clear Hartwachs-Öl with a lint-free cotton cloth.

7. If the gloss level does not match the surrounding area after drying, it can be adjusted by polishing with Wachspflege- und Reinigungsmittel.
