ADVANTAGES OF OILS
NATURAL HEAT AND TOUCH OF WOOD
The engineered flooring, which they surface finish of oil characteraize the unique, natural wood graining. By contrast floors finished with varnish, the oiled boards are kinder and warmer to the touch. This is especially important when walking barefoot on the floor every day.
INSTALLATION ON FLOOR HEATING AND KITCHENS
Oiled floors are more resistant to humidity changes in the air and water absorption. Freely “breathing” allows evaporation of any moisture taken from the wood. Thanks to this, they can be used in rooms with periodically elevated humidity (eg kitchens). In contrast to a varnished floor, which has a hard and rigid coating, the oiled floor is better suited for underfloor heating.
In the case of stronger scratches or damage to the surface, it is not necessary to scrape the entire floor, which means saving money and time. All you need to do is wipe the damaged part with sandpaper and then apply a layer of oil.
MAINTENANCE OF CLEANLINESS
An additional advantage of oiling is greater antistaticness of the floor. In practice, this means that the boards are less static and have less ability to attract dust. This is also an advantage for people with allergy or asthma symptoms.
Oil floors are less slippery, because the noticeable texture of wood causes its natural “slip resistance”. The oiled floor is ideal for rooms with high traffic, ie shopping malls, training and dance rooms. Oiled oiled boards are also a beneficial and safe solution in children’s rooms.
Proper care of the oiled floor will not only visually improve its appearance, but may cause complete regeneration of the resulting slight dents. Compared to varnishing, scratches and unevenness are practically invisible.
