Floor oils generally provide a more natural finish, the oil soaks into the pores of the wood highlighting the natural colour of the wood. Depending on the species of timber the colour will change to give a richer warm look. Sheen levels available are generally flat matt, satin-matt to a satin finish.
Wood Floor Oils are easy to apply and maintain but requires the right maintenance products to keep in tip top condition. You must understand that to keep an oiled floor in tip top condition it must be maintained with the correct products. You may think (wrongly) that an ordinary detergent will do the job, such thinking is completely out of the question for oiled floors.
