Hand finished oilwaxed floors will look better the more you maintain them. The wood will continue to absorb the natural oils and waxes and the finish to the floor will become harder wearing.
Freshly applied hardwax oil takes 10 days to cure completely. During this time it is wise to observe a few precautions:
Simple and economical regular maintenance allows fast treatment of the wood in order to renew the protective layer of waxoil and keep the floor looking warm and natural.
Make sure that the wooden floor is clean and dust free before spraying the floor with waxed and oiled wood floor maintenance oil and wipe with a clean dry cotton cloth to obtain a matt finish.

A good quality doormat placed at the entrance to the room will retain dust and grit.
Wooden floors that are finished with Lacquers or UV Oils cannot be maintained. You can clean them by sweeping, vacuuming and mopping with a damp mop as you would for any hardwood floor but the surface finish cannot be replenished. Lacquered and UV Oiled floor finishes will deteriorate over the years to the point where the floor will need to be sanded and refinished.
