Need to Know Wood Floor Finish Advice

By On October 23, 2017 No Comments

It is true that there is a host of information available about wood finishes. The end result may be that you are more confused than where you started. Oils, waxes, stains are just some of the variations and it is important that you select the best wood finish for your floor.

Without this you will be left with a wooden floor that is inadequately protected and likely looking nothing like you would have imagined.

What is the solution? The solution is seeking the advice of a wood floor restoration specialist. We were invited to sand this wood floor in Lytham St Annes. The room had an extremely dark painted finish so it was decided that they wanted a white hard wax oil wood finish for their newly restored floor.

Hard wax oil is an extremely versatile product and is a blend of tung oil and carnauba wax. It can be used for wooden flooring as well as furniture. The application of this product provides a very high barrier against liquid spillages, usage and staining.

It allows the natural appearance of the wooden boards to shine through whilst offering the highest protective qualities. It provides a matt finish that is relatively straight forward and easy to maintain.

How to Apply Wood Finishes Lancashire

We regularly talk about wood finishes and the importance of getting them right. It is incredible to identify that many of our clients are not well informed about wood finishes and the product selection available.

We also usually find that once we start to discuss product selection that our clients start to feel as though there are too many choices. This is where our time-served experience comes into play and we are able to offer valuable information that helps them to select the best product for their particular floor.

This does not mean that we blind them with science or that we only recommend a wood finish that we are comfortable using. It means that we will carefully consider their floor, the expected use and the information discussed by our client.

All of these details assist the decision-making process and will narrow down the product list to specific finishes that will best suit any particular job.

Wood Finish Application

The application of any wood finish product, as we have discussed before is vitally important. If a product is laid to thickly or thinly then it will not offer optimum protection for the wood boards underneath. If it is laid unevenly or areas are missed the same issue will occur.

Smooth application will mean that the entire surface is equally protected. Finish application can go so wrong and with any large space can be quite a daunting prospect for those with insufficient knowledge.

We created this short video that shows us applying a wood finish to a large expanse of newly restored wooden floor boards. It shows how the finish is applied smoothly. There are simple techniques in the way that the application process is handled so that the edges of the floor are as seamlessly protected as the central boards.
