Oiled Solid Wood Flooring
It is fair to say that oiled solid wood flooring has become the preferred choice for our customers when selecting their hardwood floor. An oiled finish can be specified to all of our solid wood flooring at the time of ordering. We apply two coats of Osmo Hardwax Oil to the newly machined floorboards which provides a hardwearing surface with a natural satin finish. Hardwax Oil is water and dust resistant and accentuates and enhances the natural grain of the wood.
Our oiled factory finish can be enhanced by the application of an additional coat of Hardwax Oil, once the floor is laid. An extra coat of oil will serve to seal the joints between the boards and provide longevity to the finish. This would be particularly recommended for areas subject to high traffic, or where a higher sheen is preferred.
Over time your oiled solid wood flooring will need re-coating. Wood floors subject to heavy wear, such as hallways and kitchens, will need to be re-oiled sooner than floors subject to less footfall, such as bedrooms. Unlike a lacquered floor, an oiled wood floor can be re-coated easily and does not need sanding prior to re-finishing. Oiled wood flooring can also be spot repaired and easily maintained by regular sweeping and damp mopping.
