In many countries, the procedure of oiling wooden floor is as common as varnishing. In the meantime, varnishing is a prevailing tradition in Lithuania, however, oiled floor is becoming more and more popular each year.
Oiled floors and their advantages
Floor oil is usually chosen to preserve a more natural appearance of the wood: oiled floors look as if they are not covered at all. This is because the oil absorbs into the surface of the wood, while the varnish covers its surface creating a more or less shiny film. Another advantage of oiled floor is the ability to easily refurbish the necessary surface areas. If the surface is varnished, it is difficult to refurbish a particular spot, as the line between the old and the newly coated varnish usually remains visible, so you have to polish and re-varnish the entire surface. It is not necessary to polish the whole surface of the oiled floor, it is enough to polish the wanted spot and impregnate it with oil. The lines between the old and the new oiling are not visible.
The oil is made from natural vegetable-based raw materials – vegetable waxes and oils: carnauba and candelilla waxes, soy bean, sunflower and thistle oils, paraffin waxes. The oil does not contain biocides and preservatives. Oil is suitable for all types of wooden floors. It naturally protects the wood, allows it to breathe and regulates moisture.
The oil is suitable for all wooden surfaces: hardwood, multi-layered and veneered floors, cork coatings, as well as intensively used surfaces such as tables and desktops. It is recommended to oil children’s toys. Ideal for surfaces in wet premises – bathrooms and kitchens. Oil floor is easy to clean, maintain and refurbish.
