Wood oil is a great alternative to varnish when protecting your wood floor, furniture or decking. If the wood product is unfinished or the protective layers have worn away then it is at risk of water damage and penetration of dirt, which may be irreparable. An oil finish protects the wood from deep within and forms a protective, microporous surface which doesn't not crack, flake, peel or blister. A microporous surface allows the wood to breathe, provides better air quality and is anti-static (attracts less dust) - ideal for allergy sufferers. Oil has a great liquid resistance, is very easy to maintain and partial renovations can be carried out easily prolonging the life of your wooden product.
Why use wood oil?
Oil based products provide a hardwearing, durable protective top layer for wooden flooring and furniture. The oil soaks into the surface of the wood and provides a natural appearance ensuring that the beauty, charm and attractiveness of the wood are still evident. They make the perfect choice for any residential property as scratches are less evident and cleaning is simple and straight forward.
Why should I choose an oil finish for my flooring and furniture?
If you are thinking of having an unfinished floor in your home, then it will need protecting from daily wear and tear before it can be used. By using a oil you are maintaining the beauty and character of the wood, whilst giving it the long lasting protection it requires.
