The American Black Walnut Flooring installed in this country house has underfloor heating in a sand and cement screed. The walnut flooring had been acclimatised whilst the underfloor heating was on and then installed after 7 days. The underfloor heating gradually dried out the hard wax oil factory finish as is to be expected. After 4 weeks, the floor was thoroughly cleaned with the professional wood floor cleaning product Blanchon Natural Soap, this is specially designed to clean any wooden floor as it is PH neutral.
In fact you can use this to clean lacquered floors as well as stone floors. We recommend using the lacquered wood floor cleaning kit from Cotswold Home & Garden. The Natural Soap does not leave streaks so you get a perfectly clean floor.
The floor then had a coat of the new heavy duty plus oil applied which has UV inhibitors to help protect the beautiful colour of a walnut floor. In normal circumstances this floor will last a lifetime and will just need cleaning with Natural soap if it gets dirty or with just a soft duster. You can buy a floor cleaning kit from us which has renewable pads for this operation. The pictures show the transformation that just one coat of heavy duty plus oil made to the look for the floor.
