Why does my Perth home need hardwax oil protection?

Hardwax oils are a relative newcomer to the floor finishing market, but that doesn’t mean they’re not making a serious splash for Perth homeowners looking to protect and beautify their timber surfaces.

An oil-based finish combined with a small amount of wax (hence the name), this innovative combo penetrates deep in your wood’s pores for robust protection while enhancing the natural colour of your timber floors. More than a surface coating, hardwax oil enters your timber and combines with wood fibres to make any hardwood surface stand out.

Imagine enjoying that crisp, rustic timber feeling for longer. Imagine a natural floor finish free from volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Imagine a scratch and impact-resistant barrier in your home’s busiest foot traffic areas.

OK, now stop imaging it because these are the advantages waiting for you when you call Allen Brothers Flooring to learn more about enhancing your home’s timber floors with hardwax oil technology.

Benefits of hardwax oil

✔️ Maintain the natural look and feel of wood
✔️ No build-up of film on the surface of wood
✔️ Typically environmentally friendly
✔️ Resistant to wear, heat, and water
✔️ Highly stain-resistant (great for busy homes)
✔️ Will never peel or flake over time
✔️ Ability to achieve low to zero sheen

What is the hardwax oil installation process?

If your Perth home has a large timber flooring surface area, you’ll naturally want to know how long it takes to apply the new hardwax oil coating. Hard wax oils are applied differently than more traditional wood finishing products that are sprayed or brushed onto the surface.

Typically a hardwax oil finish is applied to your timber floors before being left to saturate the wood (a matter of minutes) before the excess product is removed. Electric floor buffers may be used for large spaces with a single or multiple coat application depending on the floor and formulation of a product.

Hardwax oils generally require 24 to 72 hours before they can be handled or walked on, so be sure to plan ahead to avoid any unavoidable dashes over your floor. This is known as the dry time. You’ll also need to be aware of cure time, which is the length of time required for hard wax oils to fully cure. This may take a week for two-component hardwax oil products or a month for single-component products.

Why hardwax oil coatings are the perfect choice for your Perth property

When it comes to your timber floors, only the best will do. All Perth homeowners know the satisfaction of a striking, rustic hardwood floor that’s as enjoyable to look at as it is to walk on. But that dream can quickly become a nightmare when your timber surfaces become faded, chipped, or stained.

As Perth’s leading flooring experts, we know a thing or two about quality craftsmanship and keeping costs down. If you’re comparing finishes for timber surfaces, it’s tough to beat a hard wax oil coating. With a look, quality, and finish that is second to none, hardwax oils offer durable protection against, well...everything your daily can throw at it.

Best of all, hardwax oils are easy to repair and can be replenished without a complete re-sanding (which means more money stays in your pocket). So when it’s time for a new coat of hardwax oil (with up to 7 years between applications), you’ll have that “feels so good” feeling under your feet for longer.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hardwax Oil in Perth

How do I clean my new hardwax oil floors?

Cleaning your hardwax oil floors will help extend their lifespan and give you more bang for your buck. Thankfully, it’s easy to keep hardwax oil floors clean with a dry duster, vacuum, water, or manufacturer-recommended cleaner. You’ll want to avoid using a damp clean until the surface is completely cured, but once dry a light clean on an as-needed basis (and removing spills in a timely manner) will have your floors looking crisp and sharp.

What finishes are available?

Hardwax oils are available in four sheen levels, including:

  • Classic
  • Matte
  • Satin
  • Gloss

What makes hardwax oil different from other timber finishes?

While traditional timber finishes form a film to protect the top layer, hardwax oil penetrates deep in the pores of the wood. This protection comes from inside your floors to leave you with a finish that’s resistant to cracking, flaking, peeling, and damage. As an added bonus, anti-static properties are perfect for those who suffer from allergies, while the lack of surface film lets the wood breathe which may improve the air quality in your Perth home.

How much does a hardwax oil finish cost?

Hardwood floors are one of the most appealing and striking additions to a Perth home, offering a rustic and authentic feel that’s impossible to replicate. To keep your timber floors looking better for longer, you’ll need the protection of hardwax oils. One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to your floors, so your expected price will take into account the size of your floor, the hardwax oil product you choose, and the number of layers required.

Available in 125ml, 1lt, 2.5lt, and 20lt, retail prices range from $20 up to $200 depending on your brand and size. However, these don’t include installation. For a custom quote inclusive of products and labour, use this link to get in touch.

What is hardwax oil made from?

Hardwax oil is a 100% natural finish, which is ideal in homes, schools, and workplaces. While chemical floor finishes may provide protection, they’re also harmful to the environment (not to mention your health). Hardwax oil is produced through an eco-friendly process combining sunflower, soya, linseed, and thistle oils. This is then combined with wax and pigments classified as food safe.

The result? A 100% non-toxic finish that keeps your timber floors protected against a high degree of wear and your surfaces looking stunning for longer.
