our service will benefit from many advantages after coating your
floor. First and foremost, oiling your floor will restore your floor
to its original condition and make your home more beautiful, but only
if done by an expert. Floor oil is not film-forming. It really
penetrates the fibres of each wood strip and guarantees a
natural-looking finish. Because it has protective and hardening
properties, it extends the floor's life and makes it more resistant.
In addition, floor oiling is an eco-responsible choice. The method applies a non-greasy coating that penetrates deep into the wood. Even if the products offered on the market are modern and more efficient, this type of finishing has existed for centuries and is more ecological. Furthermore, the coating is actually a composition of natural, non-toxic oils. Consequently, it does not affect your health or the environment.
The floor can breathe and is resistant to temperature changes thanks to oiling, making it more durable and robust. This solution allows you to avoid repetitive sanding and varnishing that can damage and weaken the slats as long as maintenance is done regularly. The intervention of a professional is essential to obtain the desired effects.
artisans are specialists who perfectly master the application steps
of floor oiling, especially for high traffic areas. For each
intervention, they apply the oil from one to three coats depending on
the type of oil to ensure a perfect result. This step simply consists
of soaking the wood with an impregnating base oil. Then, this first
coat of impregnating primer must be left to act for a few minutes.
Naturally, the absorption time depends on the type of wood. In any case, the expert always wipes off the excess oil with a soft, clean, and lint-free cloth or floor pad before proceeding to the next step. It is advisable to increase the temperature of the oil already in the wood to accelerate its deep penetration. We use a polishing machine with a good level steel wool pad to do this. In all cases, the technician will use the most appropriate method for the hardwood floor.

Now, you can apply the top coat for the floor finish. It is a different, thicker oil with additives. We use an appropriate applicator to apply this second coat properly. After leaving it on for a few minutes, we remove the excess oil to get a uniform and homogeneous finish. To finish, for example, we could use a polisher with a 3/4" thick, 16" diameter synthetic pad.
Our floor oiling specialist passes the machine over the entire floor, following the direction of the slats. Then, he polishes the hard-to-reach areas with a suitable orbital sander. You will install the furniture after letting it sit for at least 24 hours or more without walking on the freshly oiled floor.
