Wood Floor Oiling

Posted on October 7th, 2011 In: News, Wood Floor Renovations News

An organic form of finish when it comes to refinishing wood floor sanding, oil is very popular among owners of wooden flooring because of its natural look and how easy it is to maintain. It also gives what is perhaps the ultimate kind of natural appearance, which ages in a very graceful manner.

Oil helps make the shading of the wood that bit richer, as well as meaning that the grain is also more pronounced because the finish soaks into the wood itself rather than just laying on the surface. During the summer season, or in a particularly warm climate, the wood can dry out, but it is a simple task to recoat the wood with oil to prevent any damage.
All wooden floors need to be properly maintained in order to be able to keep their shiny appearance.  Regular care and maintenance, such as the application of natural and safe methods like oiling and waxing, can ensure your wooden floor will retain a fresh and new look.

A hard wax oiled floor can end up being just as resilient to moisture, staining and wear as the toughest of lacquered finishes. A bonus is that a hard wax oiled floor will never need to be sanded providing it is given a little light maintenance on a regular basis, such as by using a natural soap for wet cleaning of the floor. Localised damage, such as abrasion and scratches, can also be dealt with much more easily and quickly.
