Unearthed Hard Wax Oil is a natural floor finish that is highly durable, easy to apply, and contains no VOC’s.
Application is simple - just roll the Hard Wax Oil onto the floor, wait 20 minutes, and buff it off. One coat and you're done. The oil typically dries within 24 hours, creating minimal interruption in your life or your construction site. See our application video here.
If you like, you can tint your oil with any of our bulk pigments - just stir them in.
Hard Wax Oil results in a natural, matte finish. If you desire a slightly glossier floor, wipe on our Carnauba Wax two or more days after applying the Hard Wax Oil.
For cleaning and maintenance of your floors, just use lukewarm water with a little bit of our Carnauba Wax. Please do not use micro fiber pads, as they will slowly take off the oil.
With Unearthed Hard Wax Oil, repairs are easy. You will likely never have to sand your entire floor again. Scratches or worn areas can be spot sanded, and more oil applied at any later date - the new finish will blend right in. This makes floors treated with Unearthed Hard Wax Oil hassle-free and economical to maintain over the years.
We estimate about 420 sq. ft. of coverage per 2.5 liter can and 62 sq. ft. of coverage per 375 ml can. What sets our Hard Wax Oil apart from other oils that get similar coverage out of a much smaller can, is it's liquid form. This creates an easier application process and, more importantly, deeper penetration of the floors, resulting in enhanced durability. Our unique formulation allows for quick drying times - as little as 24 hours -with no need to mix in any accelerators. Note: your coverage may vary depending on the floor density - reclaimed woods and fir floors can use significantly more oil.
For every 2.5 liter can you buy, we donate to a partner NGO in South America to buy 420 sq. ft. of endangered rain forest and title it in the name of the indigenous tribes that have always lived there.
