A stubborn wood floor - wood floor cleaning in Cambridge

At Art of Clean our professional wood flooring technicians have to work on many different types of flooring from pine to hard woods, but when we completed work recently on this exotic wooden floor we didn’t realise the potential complications.

Exotic wood contains natural oils and they stay present within the wood. A water based lacquer such as the Pallmann Finish Care STOP is not good for this type of floor as it will give it a dull finish, but we didn’t realise this until we had completed the floor.

After a bit of research our team realised that they had to use a different approach with this hard wood floor, as the wood is so dense and oily that we had to use a special oil such as the Pallmann magic oil  We then applied a commercial grade lacquer over the top, which enhanced the colour and gave the finish a really deep richness.

The customer was really happy with the finished result. The brass strip in the photos was installed to separate the floors, if you would like to buy your own, then please follow the link above.
