If you’ve ever spent much time researching hardwood flooring, you’ve likely heard of hardwood penetrating oils and may be wondering what they are. To find out more about that, as well as how to use them, be sure to read along with us here today.

What is penetrating oil, and how does it apply to hardwood flooring?

Penetrating oil is a finish used on hardwood floors that takes the place of polyurethane. The most significant difference between these two is that polyurethane is applied as a top-coat, while penetrating oil, as you might assume, penetrates deep into the wood and then hardens, leaving an extremely protective layer.

Not only is penetrating oil easy to apply and highly durable, but it also creates a surface that never needs to be refinished. Instead of refinishing these surfaces, they are served just as well by cleaning with natural soap as needed and then reapplying the oil.

If eco-friendliness is on your list of most essential flooring additions, this will be a welcoming experience for your household. To find out more about the option and to schedule a service for your home, be sure to reach out to us for an appointment at any time.
