My wife and I are having major renovations done in our house by a local builder and although he has done a fantastic job with everything up to now, we are not happy with the engineered flooring that they have laid.
It seems to be covered in this milky/chalky finish except for the edges near to the skirting. We called the builder around and he has told us that they were supplied cleaner and oil from the flooring manufacturer and this is the finish that the oil gives. He says that it will wear down/disappear over time.
Believe me, I am no expert with flooring, but I can see that something is not right. It looks terrible...he has said that he could clean the oil off but it would darken the shade of the floor.
