Q: I have wood floors coated with tung oil. What is the best way to keep them looking good?
A: I had a discussion with a technical rep of Lee Valley tools regarding the use of Tung oil as a floor finish. He said you would need an initial 10 coats with 2 days drying between coats to be repeated every 3 months. Not very practical and quite expensive to maintain tung oil floors. A better way to go is to use a product that combines Tung oil as a major ingredient with other oils and resins. The best I’ve used is http://www.waterlox.com I would look over their product and get their advice.
