It's sum sum summer time

Well, British Summer Time is on the clocks again and (in parts) it has been a lovely week weather wise. No doubt - if you have one - your underfloor heating system will be set lower and lower, which means:

SpringcleanMaintenance time!

During the heating season(s) your wooden floor has been nice and warm underneath your feet, but has also dried out. Since it is never recommended to apply maintenance polish on a warm floor, now is the time to reward your wooden floor for keeping you warm and cosy.

We highly recommend you apply a nice and new coat of maintenance polish:

Your wooden floor will love you for it!

Should I...

In the last post we mentioned we receive a lot of questions in regards of maintaining/restoring and repairing wooden floors. Like this one, we received this week:

I have just uncovered a parquet floor. It looks like a pale mahogany and appears to have no finish on it. It was probably installed in the 1950's.
I was thinking of sanding to remove some unevenness and then coating with Saicos Hard Wax Oil. Should I apply Saicos Ground Oil first then the hard wax oil as per the data sheet? Or just apply hard wax oil as the video?

If you have the slightest doubt your wooden floor is not Oak or any of the other non-tropical species, you better use Saicos Ground Oil extra thin for the first coat, followed by one or two coats of Saicos HardWaxOil.

This way it will never cause problems while applying a first coat of HardWaxOil on a tropical wood-species can end up with a very patchy result. Tropical species are oily of themselves which prevents the HardWaxOil to penetrate the surface as it should. The Ground Oil is very thin and will not have this problem.

HardWaxOil can be used without any of problems on sanded Oak, it will give you the best result, Tropical should be treated with - what we have called - the Tropical Combo for the same fine result.
