The Joinery Company sells both UV Oiled and Natural Oiled floors. UV Oiled means the floor was dried in the factory under UV lights. This process speeds up the drying time while adding a layer of protection to the surface of the floor. A UV Oiled floor does not need any special treatment after installation. Just a normal cleaning and maintenance routine is sufficient.
A Natural Oiled finish means that natural oil has been applied to the unfinished board`s surface. This is usually done by hand and then dried on special drying racks. Natural Oiled floors can be treated again with another coat of oil anytime, even immediately after installation.
You may sweep or vacuum your floors as often as you like. Always be careful not to scratch the floor with the vacuum head. And, always be sure that you are using the soft bristle setting on your vacuum cleaner or a soft bristle broom.
For quick and easy cleaning of your floor we recommend Murphy`s Oil Soap. It comes in an easy to handle bottle with simple instructions. Simply use a clean, lightly damp mop on a dust free area of the floor. Then, repeat this procedure until you have completed the whole area or room.
Both Natural Oiled and UV Oiled floors require regular maintenance. For this, we recommend Murphy`s Oil Soap. It is very easy to use. Once applied, its specially formulated ingredients quickly penetrate your floor and protect it. Maintaining your floor not only keeps it looking good, it actually improves and strengthens your floor as well.
