Brushing of Wood Flooring is an important part of creating a perfect wood flooring solution.

This is done by heavy industrial machines with heavy duty wire brushes. Here at the Solid Wood Flooring Company, we use two machines in tandem to ensure we remove the softer grain from the oak’s surface. This gives the surface of the finished wood floor a texture and makes it look more natural. It also increases the wearability of the surface because the softer grain has been brushed out.

We can adjust the brushes and increase the depth of the brushing and for our E151 which is double brushed. For this we process the boards through the machine between two to three times

Brushing will increase the amount of oil a board will absorb and one of our two brushing machines has horizontal brushes as well as vertical to create different surface effects.

The more oil the board absorbs the better it will wear in high traffic areas and it will also be more stain resistant. You can also see our brushing effect on the E956, and E352 and other boards.

Our industrial brushing machines have four brushes on each machine for quick processing so our brushed boards will go through eight brushes to get the best effect. You can easily search our web site for brushed Oak wood flooring.
