Polishing/treating oak floor

(6 Posts)

Last year we moved into a new house which has oak flooring throughout the kitchen and hallway. We sweep it regularly & use a Bona wood cleaning spray-mop thing, but whereas the floor used to have a nice shine to it, it now looks quite dull. Do you know of any good polishes/treatments we can use on it to brighten it up a bit, but to also help protect the floor against scratches? I've seen lots of oak furniture polishes online, but none which seem specifically for floors, and I don't want to turn it into a skating-rink!

I've used this www.lakeland.co.uk/22796/Underwoods-High-Shine-Floor-Polish with a floor polisher. It brings my wooden floors up a treat. Not the same as when they had been freshly oiled when first laid, but definitely gives them some of that original sheen back.

Don't use the Method stuff if the oak floor is waxed rather than varnished, it dulls it.

I do mine with Osmo Oil, it feeds the woods and gives it a nice sheen.
