HOW TO OIL A PALLET WOOD TABLE!
25 August 2021
Housekeeping is not always our cup of tea! After spending time, money and energy redecorating, it is quite normal to want to get the right cleaning products so that your new space will stay beautiful for longer. An oiled floor requires special care. We have all the products you need from the small maintenance task to the heavy-duty industrial clean. Here, we will help you understand how to maintain oiled wood using the OILED WOOD MAINTENANCE CYCLE.
Wood is a living material, even though the tree has been cut back and forth for years. Hardwood floors contract or expand with humidity and ambient temperature; it’s a natural fluctuation. We must therefore find a product that remains flexible but stays resistant!
The wood acts like a sponge. It absorbs oil, which nourishes it by preventing it from cracking and tarnishing. In addition, the oil saturates the pores of the wood and protects it as well as seals it against moisture and stains. Over time, wood continues to absorb oil, which decreases the waterproof resistance. Using oil finishes is like an ancestral art and, like any great painter, we have our optimal recipes to preserve it and help extend its lifespan.
A MAINTENANCE CYCLE lasts 1 to 2 years depending on the use of your surface. At LIGNA® we want to simplify all the life stages of your wooden surface and for this, we have developed 4 different maintenance products. They will be used at key times, allowing you to extend the life of your oil.
To slow down the natural absorption of oil in wood, SOLIA and SOLIA+ come to the rescue. Establish an alternating monthly routine during the first years of life of your oiled surface. SOLIA will clean up your small messes and SOLIA+ will add a thin protective film on the surface. Read the rest of the article in:
After you have established your routine with the products in STEP 1 and 2, you should evaluate the look of your surface. If it’s still beautiful with an even colour, continue with your routine for another year.
When your floor becomes dull, the colour no longer seems even and stains become encrusted, that is the time to move on to STEPS 3 and 4. EXTREMO is a powerful cleaner that will remove stains and GENERIO will revive the look of your wood surface. Read the complete article here:
