Wooden floors feel warm to the touch, are durable and easy to maintain. To preserve the excellent characteristics of the natural wood, it should preferably be finished with Osmo Polyx®-Oil, this makes the floor both dirt-repellent and protects the wood on the long term. Polyx®-Oils not only accentuate the natural beauty of the wood and feel great to the touch but also allows the wood to breathe.

Floors treated with Polyx®-Oil repel dirt and, contrary to many other types of flooring, they will not be charged electrostatically, nor do they serve as a breeding ground to microbes or allergens. You can remove dust, lint and fluff with a broom or a vacuum cleaner or even easier with the Osmo Opti-Set and the green Dust-Mop, which is perfect for the dry cleaning of all floor surfaces.

  • Fast, quiet and energy saving: dry cleaning with the green dust-mop.
  • The Osmo Opti-Set contains a telescopic handle, a dust-mop, a micro-mop and an active fibre cloth.



How often your wooden floor should be damp mopped depends on its usage. For domestic floors, once a week should be enough. For commercial floors such as in bars, restaurants and other high traffic areas it may be necessary to damp mop daily.

  • The Osmo Spray-Mop is perfect for mopping your floor.
  • As an alternative, use the white Micro-mop from the Osmo Opti-Set.
  • A dash of Osmo Wash and Care in mop water removes everyday dirt and grime exceptionally, thanks to the natural oils which keep the surface looking fresh. Please refrain from using agressive cleaners such as bleach.
  • Advice: Only use a slightly damp, not wet, mop! If required dry the floor afterwards.



From time to time your wooden floor will need refreshing with Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner. This regenerates the Polyx®-Oil and preserves the charm and charisma of your floor. The interval for refreshing your floor depends on its usage. In bars, restaurants and commerical areas the interval for refreshing will be shorter than for normal domestic areas.

  • Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner cleans and refreshes in one due to its natural oils and hardwaxes.
  • Also available as Liquid Wax Cleaner White for white floor surfaces. Also available in a sprayable version. Please use the Osmo Opti-Set with the active fibre cloth. We recommend using the Osmo FloorXcenter for larger areas. High coverage - please apply thinly. 1 litre is sufficient for approx 80-100m².



Even a perfectly care for floor will one day show signs of wear. This is no problem, one of the great advantages of Osmo Polyx®-Oil finished floors is that, unlike traditional lacquers and varnishes, they can be repaired or finished without the need for sanding.


  • First clean the floor thoroughly.
  • Manual application: Please apply thin coat of Osmo Polyx®-Oil with either the Osmo Floor Brush or the Floor Roller Set.
  • Mechanical application: Please use the Osmo FloorXcenter to firstly intensively clean and then apply the Polyx®-Oil to the floor.
