This wooden floor has a UV Oiled finish. A UV Oiled finish is more practical than a Natural Oiled finish in that you do not need to apply another coat of oil once the floor is installed. A UV Oiled floor needs the same level of care and maintenance as a lacquered floor. ESB Flooring stock cleaning and maintenance products by Blanchon. UV Oiled floors are very easy to clean; simply vacuum or sweep and then mop with a special floor cleaner or eco-friendly floor cleaner. But make sure your mop is not too wet; it must be very slightly damp. For more information on cleaning this UV oiled wood floor please see our article "Cleaning and Maintenance for Natural and UV Oiled Floors".

It is not advisable to cover your natural wood flooring with any type of carpet, rug or covering that might prevent contact with daylight. Covering natural wood flooring product will result in discolouration of the exposed area.
During the cleaning process we advise to keep the water/solution clean and free of dirt continuously throughout the process in order to prevent dirt from residing within the grain of the floor and between boards.
