APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions
The surface to be treated must be dry and the moisture content of the wood must be below 20 %, because wet wood does not absorb oil and oil dries slowly. As impregnated wood is often damp, we recommend it to be treated after about 6 months from the installation.

During treatment and drying the temperature of the air must be at least +5ºC, and the relative humidity of the air below 80%.
Preparation
Untreated surface:
Remove dirt, dust and loose material from the wood surface. Wash dirty wood surface with Terassi- ja Kalustepesu according to instructions.
Previously with wood oil treated surface:
Remove loose material with scraper and/or wire brush. Clean dirty wood surface with Terassi- ja Kalustepesu according to instructions, if needed. If a clear film remains on the surface, remove it before treatment.
Treatment
Stir Valtti Wood Oil Akva thoroughly before use and frequently during application. Spread one coat tightly with a brush or a sponge so that the oil is absorbed evenly into the wood. Normally one coat is enough, but a porous wood might need two coats. Spread evenly the entire length of the board in continuous strokes to avoid overlapping. Apply one coat on garden furniture. Porous wood might need two coats. When treating jetties take care that the oil does not end up in the water. The second coat can be applied as soon as the oil is absorbed and the surface is dry, after few hours, depending on the weather conditions. Oil treatment makes the wood look darker.

Carry out maintenance when necessary. Surfaces continuously exposed to the weather may need to be treated annually.
Cleaning of tools
Wash the tools with soap and water or Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner).
Maintenance instructions
Handle a new surface with care for approx. 1 week so that the product achieves its final hardness and durability. The surface can be cleansed lightly with a soft brush or mop after approx. 2 days from the treatment, if necessary.

Dirty surface can be washed with Pihan Huoltopesu (1 part of Pihan Huoltopesu into 10 parts of water). Clean stains and very dirty surfaces with a stronger solution of Pihan Huoltopesu (1:1). After washing rinse with water and let dry.
