Buffing your floor after applying oil or wax gives a better result – but use the right machine.Â Most electric small buffing machines are too light – and have minimal effect.
Use a semi-professional buffer (407mm) with a large white pad or an ‘old-fashioned’ cast iron 7 kg buffing-block.
The movement of the pad will warm and spread out the oil/wax more evenly.The wood absorbs it more so that your floor feels slippery for less time.
Apply the product twice a year (more often in heavy traffic areas) for protection against dirt and drips – and to bolster the wood’s long term durability. By doing this regularly you are avoiding the heavy cost of full floor sanding.
