I just bought an Emperor Oak Oiled Floor. The salesman of the reseller said it has been oiled 7 times with Woca oil but advises another coat once laid.
Reading forums, opinion seems split:
it's quite common (these days with so many products coming from China) the "oil" used on pre-finished boards is not really protecting against drips and spillages. When we install boards like this, we either apply a wax-polish or one coat of HardWaxOil to create a better wear and tear layer.
Why would you want to re-oil a pre-oiled floor straight after installation?? Use a suitable maintenance product 4 weeks after installation and then every 5 -6 months.
Don't re-oil - use a proper maintenance product!
- What do you think?
- Which one is best for me?
- Should I be applying another coat of oil once laid?
- Should this be a maintenance oil? Or a normal hardwax oil?
- Should I use a floor soap first like "Osmo Wash and Care"?
