Here is why you need it
When sanded, the floor is left in its natural look, which is pretty but also unpractical. A naked wood is very hard to maintain because of its abrasive structure and its tendency to collect moist, dirt and dust.

It is up to you to decide which sealing suits you better and we will be happy to do it.
Here is how we do it
Oiling has proven to be a very effective method of sealing, which not only enhances the appeal of your floor but also protects it from water spillages and prolong its life while letting it breathe at the same time. The oil is completely natural and as such has no harmful effect and guarantees for a healthy indoor environment. The oil layer takes several hours to dry completely, especially if placed in more humid conditions. A couple of coats of oil sealing serve a better protective function, so it is highly recommended.

What do we actually do?
Our team spreads the oil thinly twice in order to achieve the desired look. They do buffering in between the coats. With the help of lint-free cloths, they remove the excess oil from the surface. You shouldn’t walk on it before it’s fully dry which usually takes about 24 hours. After that, the floor can take light traffic. To return your furniture you need to wait around 48 hours and for all the carpets and rugs – about a week. There may be distinctive smell from the oil for a few days until the drying is complete. Our team will advise you how long you should wait precisely after they’re done.
