Wood Floor Cleaning, Polishing & Re-Oiling
There are a number of wood floor maintenance services, which all aim to prolong the life of the existing finish by adding an extra coat of sealant.
Wood Floor Polishing
Wood floor polishing is a maintenance service for a lacquered surface. The correct name of the service should be "Clean & Polish", but we find many clients using the verb as referral to "improving" the condition of wooden floors, regardless of the means.
Well, polishing is the application of a new coat(s) of a "Polish" onto floors sealed with water-based or solvent-based lacquer. The polish as a product which can only bond onto a lacquered surface and it is not intended to be used on bare wood. Therefore, if the floors have any significant wearing, they should go for floor sanding service, as the result will be unexpected.
Our staff members and flooring experts will be able to advise if Clean & Polish service is applicable in given situation.
Wood Floor Re-Oiling
Wood floor re-oiling is recommended every 16 to 24 months for domestic use and special attention should be paid to floors with commercial use and floors finished in colour. Re-oiling is the application of an extra coat of oil over the existing oiled finish.
Preparation of the floors to take an extra coat is done by fine abrasive and the application of the oil is made with slow buffing process. Our oil-based products offer matt or satin sheen.
Wood Floor Re-coating
Unlike the Polishing service, the Recoating requires the same type of lacquer to be applied over the existing one. If the product is unknown, Polishing services should go instead.
Preparation of the floors to take an extra coat is done by an agent mixed with the new coat of lacquer and run of a fine abrasive to prepare the floors for an additional coat.
