Prep before Oil Finish on White Oak Stairs


Set of white oak stairs that Im going to finish with Rubio.

Theyve got some traffic on them during construction so Im wondering what the best prep is before sanding then w/ 80, vac, tax cloth, apply rubio?

Should I be hitting them with some sort of cleaning solution first?

Hard to say without seeing them but unless they got stained with something out of the ordinary - sanding should be sufficient.

Couple spots with some water marking. Other than that, just foot and hand grime.

Sanding should be enough although if the water stain goes too deep you might need wood bleach.

Re: Prep before Oil Finish on White Oak Stairs


I use a lot of Rubio and I can tell ya that sanding will be good. However, I would sand them up to 100 or 120 grit to be sure you get out all sanding marks. Hope this helps.
