How Can I Protect My Oak Floor Without Changing Its Natural Colour?

29th Nov 2012 @ 17:53

One of the most common questions were asked in the oak flooring industry is how can I protect my oak flooring, without changing the oak from its natural unfinished colour? When protecting and finishing your oak floor, we always recommend the use of a hard wax oil, such as the Fiddes Hard Wax Oil. These traditional hardwax oils can leave your floor with a warm, honey colour which is often beloved by many.

However keeping your floor looking the same as it did when it was first laid, in its unfinished state, however is becoming increasingly popular. Luckily thanks to the quality of the Blanchon wood care products, you can keep your floor looking natural whilst also providing it with protection. The product in question is the Blanchon Wood Floor Oil Environment - Natural, which is a odourless, non-yellowing natural finish, which will be touch dry in just 20 minutes.

This product is great for those looking to keep their floor looking as natural as possible, whilst also providing it with protection against everyday wear and tear. Each 5 litre tin will cover 75 square metres with one coat, or 25 square metres with the recommended three coats.

Hello, I have doors made of quarter sawn white oak. I'm looking for a product to create the finish you have shown in the above image. I am unsure if you recommend fiddes hard wax oil or blanchon wood floor oil to achieve this, or a combination? Please advise.
