October 2016

It's that time of the year again

BewolktAfter a few months of great high temperatures, October  brought rain, wind and fog: Autumn definitely seems to be on its way. 

When you have UnderFloor Heating (UFH) you should prepare your wooden floor for the coming Winter period now, before the real heating season starts. UFH tends to dry out the wood a bit more than on average, so treating your floor with a maintenance polish (like a moisturiser) will keep it in good health and beautiful over the colder times of the year.

It's never a good idea to apply a polish on a warm wooden surface, this can create patches of too quickly dried polish, therefore treat your wooden floor during a "sunny" day these coming weeks, before the UFH is switched on to higher levels.

To know even more about maintaining your wooden floor, have a look at the "Ultmate Maintenance Guide" - filled with practical tips and advice and includes videos showing you how to wash and wax.

Aunt Polly, a great polish

Basin Tante Polly_2.5Basin's "Aunt Polly" - Tante Polly -  polishing Wax

Maintenance product for waxed/oiled wood floors. Can also be used to revitalise re-discovered parquet floors which have been oiled/wax before.

Polishing Wax of superior quality, produced by the original recipe by Aunt Polly (from Wales). It is a mix of beewax and fossil plant wax, which contains real turpentine (*1).

The polishing wax is available in ivory white (natural colour),traditional yellow (light yellow) of dark brown. These give a warm and antique colour. This extraordinary polishing wax gives a brilliant shine and accentuates the veins of the wood in a beautiful way.

Your wooden floor obtains a high protection as polishing wax nourishes the wood and goes against dehydration, but also protects against humidity.

The ivory white (natural) can be used best on bare wood (for instance with restoration projects), it will act almost as a transparent coat.
The traditional yellow can be used best for revitalising oiled floors of any colour while the dark brown revitalises faded originally stained wooden floors.

Also highly suitable for polishing wooden furniture.

*1 = real turpentine with its authentic terpentine smell (although it fades quickly, be aware of this if you are sensitive to strong smells and do ventilate the area when freshly applied)

Easy to apply, order now

For two-weekly cleaning we recommend Saicos EcoLine (VOC-free) Wash-care
