Most oiled floors are now pre-finished (or finished on site) with hardwax oil.Â This 2 in 1 product combines natural oil (for long term protection) with bees hardwax (for the wear and tear layer).
Modern hardwax penetrates the wood, giving moisture resistance, but allowing it to ‘breatheâ€™. A final hardwax layer makes the wear and tear layer water repellent.
Its high surface density provides resistance to abrasive movements. Minor damage is easily repaired with some wax or maintenance oil. No need to sand the whole floor!
