If you have ever had your hardwood floors refinished then one thing you absolutely can remember is the harsh smell from the finish. That's one of the biggest negatives I receive from clients is the smell and not being able to stay in their home.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) are solvents that get into the air as the stain dries. It's also why there is such a strong odor. These solvents can cause sides effects that are not so pleasant such as headaches, nausea, and dizziness.
If you are considering refinishing your hardwood floors, yet don't want to bother with a finish that has VOC's there is another option to consider. Rubio Monocoat is all-natural, durable, and non-toxic. It contains no VOC's and is plant-based. Many finishes also require more than one application. Rubio Monocoat allows you to achieve your desired color in just one application. There are over 50 colors to choose from making your desired color possibilities endless.
While I have performed several hardwood flooring projects using Rubio Monocoat, I really took it to the test when I put it in my own house.I have two small boys and a small beagle. That would really be the ultimate test in regards to it's durability.
One reason I chose Rubio Monocoat was due to the fact it had no VOC's. During the process of applying it, my kids were actually in their beds asleep and when they woke up there was no harsh smell. My kids were able to be in the house while I did this. It dried in about an hour.
The maintenance on Rubio Monocoat is very simple as well. The ability to fix a scratch that is on the floor can be fixed in as little as a few minutes. This was almost 6 months ago and I am very satisfied that I chose Rubio Monocoat as the product to use in my own home. The RMC Cleaning Soap is what helps maintain your. We provide the option for you to obtain this soap as well after your hardwood flooring project is complete.
While the only drawback on this finish is the price compared to finishes with VOC's. In the long-run it is absolutely worth the investment if you want an all-natural, non-toxic finish that has lasting durability.
