Maintenance Schedules and Recommendations for wooden surfaces
To keep your timber looking beautiful and avoid degradation over time, use suitable cleaners, e.g., ProNature Wood Cleaner to carry out REGULAR maintenance, follow the instructions and recommendations below.
Prior to applying ProNature Indoor, ensure that all surfaces are clean and free of grease using ProNature Plant Soap Concentrate. If necessary sand to a smooth and even finish (insufficient sanding will be highlighted especially when sealing with a darker colour)
Stir well before applying. For regular maintenance apply ProNature Interior Wood Sealer using a brush or roller (choose same colour as original coating). Wait 10 minutes and then, using a lint-free cloth, remove all remaining excess to avoid glossy spots and prolonged drying. Leave to dry for a minimum 6 hrs.
NOTE: Only surfaces, which are subject to extreme weather conditions, should receive an additional coating after a 24hr drying period.
One coat of ProNature Interior Wood Sealer is usually adequate for maintenance purposes. More coats may become necessary if maintenance had been neglected and the original coating has completely deteriorated. In that case it is recommended to re-apply ProNature Interior Wood Sealer as described in our Technical Data Sheet or on the product container.
It is recommended to check all oiled surfaces for any signs of deterioration within the first year after application and if required, maintenance should commence immediately to avoid further damage.
Experience shows that this first maintenance check is crucial as it extents the time to the next maintenance application substantially and re-coating is probably only necessary every two years.
