Learn From These Mistakes Before You Learn Timber Floor Polish


Do you have parquet at home and would you like it to look like the first day? Over time, the wood can lose its luster and become dull. If you want your floor to regain its shine, you may need to consider a Timber floor polish.

There are several ways to do it. One of them is with a special polishing machine. It is a very expensive device and, although it can be rented in certain establishments, it is not so easy to use.

So, what can you do if you don’t have access to this type of special machinery?

Do not worry. There is another option that, although it is more laborious, also gives excellent results.

If you choose it, the first step is to set aside furniture and decorative objects and protect all sensitive areas with paper and masking tape, exactly as you would if you were to paint the walls.

Next, the floor must be thoroughly cleaned. Remove all dust with a vacuum cleaner and remove any stains with special wood products.

Then the real work begins: with the help of a sanding tool you will have to give several passes to each wooden board until you manage to lift the layer of old varnish that covers them.

It is advisable to always sand parallel to the planks and not change the direction in which we do it at any time. This will avoid leaving marks and scratching the material.

Once we have finished this task, it’s time to clean again. It is important to collect all the chips and dust that may have come off during the process.

This is also the right time to repair any damage that may have appeared in the parquet due to use (if it has holes, for example, you can use a special paste to fill holes in the wood).

By following these steps you will get a practically new and shiny floor again. Do you dare to try it? No, do not worry! At Beach Floors (beachfloors.com.au) we offer a complete floor sanding and polishing services at the best prices! Call us to know more about our other services and quotation.
