Will I have to wax my hardwood flooring?

Will I have to wax my hardwood flooring?

Most hardwood floors, except engineered wood, should be waxed every 12 to 18 months. It seals the porous wood surface, enhances shine, and protects it from stains, scratches, and dents.

What is floor wax?

Available in either paste or liquid form, it is made from natural, organic substances like beeswax or linseed oil. Alternatively, it can be a synthetic which is a floor polish.

Natural is eco-friendly, but synthetics can be easier to work with since they're primarily available as liquids.

Why doesn’t the engineered version need it?

Engineered planks are factory-finished. This hardwood flooring has an ultra-tough acrylic finish that can only be used in controlled settings. This will be enough to guard the floor.
