How to apply a pretreatment to a hardwood floor

The first step in a successful application is to make sure the floor is appropriately sanded down and clean of all dust and debris.

Then, apply the pretreatment lengthwise along the grain using a flat applicator pad, natural bristle brush, or ⅜ snap roller. You’ll want to be sure the floor is saturated and completely covered by the pretreatment.  This will allow for as much reaction with the wood’s extractive as possible.  Let it dry for 15 minutes before buffing the floor with a maroon or green pad.

Remove any excess oil with a white pad wrapped in a terry towel, buff the floor with a white pad, and then wait 24 hours before applying the second coat of oil.
