The subtle difference between oiled and lacquered parquet

More natural, warmer, easier to maintain: Oiled parquet has great advantages over varnish-sealed floors.

mafi natural wood floors are exclusively oiled, pollutant-free that is air-dried (oxidative). With this process, the applied oil penetrates deep into the wood without closing the pores. In contrast, there is varnished parquet, in which the wood is sealed by the varnish layer.

Parquet flooring with an air-dried oil surface offers decisive advantages: You have direct, pleasant and warm contact with the wooden surface instead of with a lacquer layer. Oiled parquet has a better influence on a positive indoor climate because it makes a valuable contribution to moisture exchange. Not least when it comes to maintenance, the oiled parquet is a step ahead of the lacquered one. Too much moisture for example when wiping can be a problem for varnished parquet. If moisture gets under the seal, this can lead to ugly stains or warped planks.

The oiled mafi natural wood floors, on the other hand, are easier to care for and have a longer service life because they are made more and more resistant by cleaning with warm water and mafi wood floor soap. Dirt and stains can be easily washed out of this open-pore surface. Another plus: with oiled parquet, repairs can be carried out directly and easily on the affected area without having to treat the entire surface.
