Woca Oil Takes your Flooring to the Next Level

Woca — A Great Flooring Alternative to the Nashville Norm.

Hardwood flooring is a timeless quality to have in any home
or commercial area. Take the Country Music Hall of Fame, for example. A classic Nashville
staple requires a classic look. That’s where Ozburn-Hessey comes in. And while
most companies in Nashville use different methods,
Ozburn-Hessey goes above and beyond to make sure your flooring looks

Woodcare USA, an
exclusive importer of Woca oil finishing, is a vital tool in Ozburn-Hessey’s
flooring work. Woca, originally began in Denmark, and is now one of the oldest
manufacturers of hardwood oil finishing in Europe. In 1994 Woodcare brought
Woca to the United States and has since served the country with their complete product
package for all hardwood flooring.

A couple facts about Woca:

Woca does not contain wax – these are vegetable
oil-based products and have non-aromatic solvents. The oil not only penetrates
the wood to make the flooring harder, but it also creates a protective surface,
which makes scratches and dents less noticeable.

VOC-free – VOC, short for Volatile Organic
Compounds, are common air pollutants that are believed to be a factor of Global
Warming.  Realizing the negative impact
VOCs are to the environment, Woodcare produced their first Woca oils in 2008
VOC free.

A fairly uncommon
product throughout Nashville and the Middle Tennessee area, Woca oil is
strongly recommended at Ozburn-Hessey. While the most common technique for
hardwood flooring is staining and then coating with a polyurethane, there are
some disadvantages for using this method instead of Woca. Not only is future
repair much more difficult, the sheen allows for a much more visible wear and
tear. If the floor is scratched, the coat can turn white and the dings and
dents of the floor can begin to show.

Woca oil is used also to
protect the flooring from the elements, such as weather and high-volume
traffic. For projects like the Country Music Hall of Fame, traffic and
weathering are huge factors and need to be considered when choosing a product
for the floor.  With a dirt and
water-resistant hardwood floor, the possibilities are endless.
