Wood Floor Oil and Stain

We recommend using SAICOS oils. In most European countries, finishing floors using oil is more common than using lacquer. In Lithuania, a lacquered finish is still the predominant trend. However, each year, oiled floors are increasing in popularity.

OILED FLOORING AND ITS BENEFITS


  • Floor oil is usually chosen to keep the wood as natural-looking as possible: oiled floors look as though they are not coated at all. This is because oil is absorbed into the top layer of the wood once applied, whereas lacquer forms a coat on top of the surface of the wood which is more or less glossy.
  • Easy repair of specific surface areas. In case of lacquered surfaces, it is difficult to repair a specific area of the floor because there will be a visible line between the old and the new lacquer finish, thus you have to sand the entire floor and re-apply lacquer all over the entire surface. In oiled flooring, there is no need to sand the entire floor. It is enough to sand the repair area and impregnate it with oil. The line between the old and the new oil finish will not be visible.

NATURAL

  • Oil is made from natural plant materials – plant waxes and oils such as carnauba wax, candelilla wax, soybean oil, sunflower seed oil and thistle oil, and paraffin waxes. Oil does not contain biocides or preservatives. Oil is suited for all types of wooden flooring.
  • Oil naturally protects the wood, allows it to breath and controls moisture.

PRACTICAL

  • Oil is suited for treating all types of wooden surfaces including hardwood, multi-layer and plywood floors, cork flooring as well as intensively used surfaces, such as desks and table tops.
  • Oil is a recommended method for finishing children’s toys.
  • Ideal for the surfaces of the indoor areas with elevated moisture levels such as bathrooms and kitchens.
  • Oiled floors are easy to clean, to maintain and to repair
