Choose The Right Finish

Lacquer

The top layer is spray coated with five primer coats and at least two top coats of Treffert aluminium oxide lacquer which is UV cured. The finish can range from matt to gloss. The result is a smooth hard wearing and low maintenance surface which enhances the natural grain and beauty of the wood.

Care: Avoid scratches by minimizing surface dust and grit. Install matting and sweep/ vacuum regularly. Furniture should be protected with felt pads.

Note: A spray lacquer cleaner is recommended to avoid using too much water.

Daily Maintenance

Wood is a natural product and it will change in a appearence and colour over time as it matures. Follow these guidelines and maintain the natural beauty of your floor.

  • Prevent accumulation of grit and abrasive dust which can scratch and dull the lacquered surface. Do this with regular sweeping and vacuuming and by installing barrier mats such as coir matting inside and outside all external door ways.

  • Protect all furniture with felt pads to avoid any scratching with movement.

  • Wipe up any spilled liquids and avoid any standing water or liquid as wood will absorb liquid and expand which could effect the stability of the floor. Any stains should be removed while wet with a clean damp cloth.

  • Avoid use of wax or oil based detergent or any household cleaners. These can be abrasive and damage or dull the surface and can leave a dangerous slippery film.

  • If using a mop and bucket with soap solution to clean the floor, avoid using too much water insuring the mop almost dry before application.

Natural Oil

Up to four coats of natural WOCA oil are applied by rollers, each coat is buffed into the top layer permeating the grain and adding a matt sheen to the surface which is then left to cure. This finish is the most natural of any, creating a deep lustre whilst maintaining a tactile surface.

Care: Keep the surface free from dust and grit and protect furniture with pads. Clean and condition the floor with natural oil soap to prolong its life between re-oiling.

Note: Natural oiled floors can benefit from a coat of maintenance oil on installation and should be maintained in the same way periodically.

  • Oiled floors should be maintained regularly, normally once a year, but more often in case of floors exposed to extremely hard wear.

UV Oil

Up to four coats of natural WOCA oil are applied by rollers and buffed into the top layer permeating the grain. Each coat is cured under ultra-violet light creating a slight satin sheen on the surface. This finish combines the natural lustre of the oil with a tougher surface finish.

Care: Keep the surface free from dust and grit and protect furniture with pads. Clean and condition the floor with natural oil soap to prolong its life between re-oiling.

Note: UV oiled floors will not need a coat of oil on installation but should be treated with maintenance oil periodically depending on usage.
