Lessons Learned from Years with Flooring

Wooden Floor Varnishing Re-varnishing a previously varnished floor that is in good condition is possible but in the instance when the paint has started wearing off in some areas then it is only good to remove the varnish and apply a new layer. Any other finishing on the floor need to be removed prior varnishing so that the timber is freed from all the dirt, polish, and oil. Once the removal of the old finish is done, the timber is now sanded and if necessary stained. Varnishing Steps
Case Study: My Experience With Floors
First Coat of Varnish The the first layer of varnish is applied and thinned using the appropriate thinner, often between 25 to 50%, but the manufacturer’s instructions need to be checked. This first coat acts as a sealer on the timber, providing a bond between the timber and the subsequent layers of varnish. Typically, thinned varnish is watery and easy to work with but also easy to splash.
Case Study: My Experience With Floors
Using a 4 inch or 10 cm brush, the thinned varnish is applied along the length of the floorboards, there should be no need of applying the varnish across the timber grains. Complete the length of a couple of floorboards before you can move on to the next ones. As much as possible try to avoid spreading onto the edge of the next floorboard since any overlapping may be visible when the job is done. Applying the Remaining Coats The remaining coats of varnish will be applied using the 10cm brush, and the varnish is first spread across the grain and then along the grain. Once the varnish begins to dry, do not go over it with the brush to avoid leaving the marks of the brush. First work on the length of a couple floorboards before you can finally move to the next ones. Spreading of the varnish to the adjacent boards should be avoided since overlapping will be seen in the final job. Allow the Varnish to Cure Do not rush to start using the floor, the varnish manufacturer gives a recommended time for leaving it before moving in furniture. The recommended cure time is three days (Plus); this is however different from the dry for overcoat time which means that the floor is ready for the next coat but is still soft and easily marked by furniture. The longer you can leave the floor to cure before moving the furniture in the better it is. Re-varnishing If the varnished floor is in an almost good shape, it is possible to freshen it up without having to remove the original finish fully. Re-varnishing this type of floor can not be compared as to when the old finishing has been peeled off and the surface sanded and re-varnished; any damage on the original surface may remain visible.
