Over recent years the emergence of hardwax oil has changed the way many people view oiled finishes. In the past with traditional oiled floors, there was a high amount of maintenance required to maintain the floors appearance and durability of the finish. The introduction of the hardwax oil has helped reduce the amount of maintenance as well as achieving a more durable finish. Although this does not mean that the finish has as durable a surface as most lacquers offer.
The benefit of using a hardwax oil is that localised repairs can be carried out to damaged flooring and refinished without the need to resand and finish the whole area.
Below are some of the hardwax oils that Greenewood Flooring use.
