Water-base urethane finishes today meet the VOC requirements outlined by the Canadian and US governments, but the hardwax oil finishes are the most environmentally friendly options.
The hardwax oils are a different approach to hardwood floor finishing. While urethane finishes form a coating on the top of the wood, the hardwax oils protect the floor from the inside out, forming a micro-porous surface which is wear resistant, dirt and water repellent, long lasting, and extremely hard wearing. The hardwax oils are also solvent free. The finished surface comes in a satin or matt finish.
A floor finished with the hardwax oil can be renovated without resanding the whole floor - only the affected area needs to be addressed.
Cleaning is also easy with only a non-aggressive household cleaner and a spray mop system.
The look of the hardwax oil finished floor is very natural and is the choice for people who love the look of real wood.
