Oil Finish Treatments
Hardwood floors are beautiful floor treatments that can last a lifetime and look great doing it. However, they do require a bit more maintenance than other types of flooring in order to keep them looking their best. The good news is that even if you have an older floor that hasn’t been kept up well, a professional cleaning service can give your hardwood floors the luster they held in their youth.
One of the most common wood floor treatments is an oil finish, and can take a floor from dull to gorgeous with just one treatment. At WOW Total Cleaning, we have the experience and resources to bring even the oldest of floors back to life, and we can be counted on to keep your floor looking great.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Oil Treatments
An oil finish usually employs linseed or tung oil, which have the following positive effects on your floor:
- Penetrates the wood, repairing more than just the surface
- Dries solid, filling cracks and defects
- Restores the original color of the wood
Although oil treatments are a popular choice for wood, there are a few drawbacks such as the following:
- The floor will still be vulnerable to water damage
- Lacks the smooth and glossy appearance of a varnish or lacquer
- Should be reapplied every 6 months or so
Waxes are frequently combined with oil treatments to provide a more complete seal and give the floor a glossy finish.
Whatever your flooring needs happen to be, WOW Total Cleaning has you covered. Call 512-291-0048 today to speak with our Austin wood floor specialists.
- Extremely professional company! The crew did a phenomenal job today on our ceramic tile floor, getting rid of the wax, steaming, and polishing the floors! It was a long job but they left our floors immaculate! The front desk, Ivy, gave us updates on when they would arrive and communicated with us on any changes in their schedule. I highly recommend this company, and we will definitely use them again!!!
- We just had our tile flooring thoroughly stripped and cleaned. They did an amazing job and me and my husband are very pleased. They worked very hard and took almost no breaks. They arrived on time and the staff were extremely professional, respectful, and pleasant. I wish we knew about them before. We would have used them yearly. I highly recommend their service. They are a bit pricey but well worth every dime as they will leave your house immaculate. We will recommend them to all our neighborhood. It is rare to get such stellar service. We look forward to using them soon.
- I called Wow Total Cleaning's Emergency Hotline and the owner Gustavo immediately picked up. It wasn't some calling center that I had to wait for, it was a direct line to his cell phone which I really appreciated. They offered to come immediately in the middle of the night, but I was working with the insurance claims and so we started first thing the next morning.
- While on a 3 week vacation we had WOW come to our 4200 SQFT house and what can I say.............INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!! Even the Schmootz in the corners that accumulates was REMOVED! Every Horizontal surface was SPIC AND SPAN!!!! Floors polished....Blinds cleaned...Ceiling fans cleaned...and even the windows(INSIDE AND OUT)...They were ...ON TIME...PROFESSIONAL and they did an EXCEPTIONAL JOB!!!!!!!.....VERY REASONABLY PRICED as WELL.
- The WOW team was on time, courteous and professional in every way. When they were finished I asked them to do a little more. They were happy to stay late to take care of my request. I will continue to use WOW for my cleaning needs.
- Best job and service ! We use them two to three times every year . Always on time and excellent work ! I recommend them to everyone ! Oh and the prices are fair , can't beat that !
- They did a fantastic job and were very professional. You could tell that they did it (and did it well) because they actually cared about helping more that just the money. They answered all our calls and were quick to get there after we first called them. Our house flooded, and they were quick and compassionate in their work to extract the water and take out damaged carpet and ceiling. I definitely recommend them.
- We have used Wow at least 3 times, maybe 4. They are always professional, on time and they do a great job. We have done carpet, upholstery, and tile. They have been great in every scenario. All in all, great service.
