Refinishing Oiled Wooden Floors
Search our Advice Centre
This guide is meant for refinishing an oiled wooden floor only. If your floor has a lacquered finish, please see our lacquered guide here.
It’s best to refinish your oiled floor more often than a lacquered floor. How often you do it depends on how heavily the floor is used, but twice a year is good practice. You can also give localised maintenance if there’s a particular area that gets more traffic than the rest of the room.
Before you start, make sure to vacuum, clean and dry your floor as thoroughly as possible. This is an often neglected but incredibly important part of the process. Remember when cleaning to avoid excessive moisture – the floor should be dry within 1 minute.
One the floor is clean and dry, simply apply the oil to the floor and spread evenly with a paint roller. It's important to spread it as evenly as possible
