Corey Cathcart of Integrity Floors LLC in Tampa had used competitor penetrating oils for many years to maintain The Oxford Exchange, which contains a retail store and restaurant, and is covered in 6 year old reclaimed Oak floors. He also maintained the nearby Armature Works, a 10,000 capacity event space is covered in recalimed heart of pine floors milled from the original 1900 beams and flooring of the factory building.
Cathcart found the competitor oils to be tacky and wasn't satisfied with the longer dry times, especially for the needs of retail and event spaces like this, where it's pertinent to be in and out so they can open for business in the morning. After sampling Bona Craft Oil 2K, Cathcart was impressed with the even flow and application in the humid Florida weather, 8 hour dry time and beautiful end result of bringing out the uniqueness and beauty of the reclaimed wood throughout the spaces.
He worked with the architect to spec the products and now maintains the floors twice a year with Bona Craft Oil 2K. The Oxford Exchange and Armature Works were finished with Bona Craft Oil 2K Neutral and were ready to open the next day for business. The theater floor, comprised of reclaimed Pine sinker logs from the Suwanee River, was a blend of Bona Craft Oil 2K Neutral, Clay and Garnet.
Cathcart is extremely happy to finally have a product that meets all his requirements for this unique space and can't wait to start using Bona Craft Oil 2K for his residential clients. "The application rate, dry times, low-to-no odor, and available mix kit are what sets this product apart from the competition," stated Cory.

"I am starting a floor cleaning and recoat business in upstate N.Y.. Your training in Manalapan N.J. was fantastic! Everyone in your company is so knowledgable and helpful. I traveled six hours to attend the training and stayed at the Hampton Inn. It was worth ten times the price I paid to attend. I can not say enough about how pleased I am. I was not sure before attending, if I was going to get into this line of work, but your class and company convinced me. I have ordered a Bona Deep Clean Machine and Bona Buffer. I am going to be using Bona products exclusively. Mike Overy has already been helpful in working with my local distributor in Rochester N.Y. . Thank you again. My business name is going to be Refresh Floor Care. I am a Bona user and promoter for life!" - Leon Maiolo
