German term or phrase: Nachsättigung and Rückfettung
Zur Unterhaltsreinigung xxx Holzbodenseife, die eine gute Reinigungswirkung mit einer für das Holz notwendigen Rückfettung verbindet, und zur gelegentlichen Nachsättigung des Holzes xxx Pflegeöl, das hauchdünn aufgetragen und ein massiert wird, um die gute Schutzwirkung der Imprägnierung auf Dauer zu bewahren.

Feeding/rejuvenating
Explanation:
Naranga, One problem you have is that both terms really mean the same thing. Nachsättigen and Rückfetten both mean restoring the finish. For Nachsaettigen I would use rejunvenate the finish. For Rueckfetten I would use "feeding" (in quotation marks) the wood. This is the common way to describe the process. Fettung and Saettigen implies they are using a penetrating and sealing wood oil or polish.

Thanks again, Kim. There seems to be a lot of tautology throughout the whole of the translation!
