After the wooden floor sanding and buffing process is complete, it is a time to protect the flooring with the most appropriate seal. Some people might call this wood floor varnish, but in professional terms, varnish is only one type of wood floor seal.

If you want to economise on your project, we advise you opt for a lower spec rather than an inferior seal. A cheap seal (B&Q, Wickes or Homebase) will result in greater expense due to the need for frequent re-sands.

Quality seals protect the finished wood, offering a stain and wear resistant durable finish that should, with the correct maintenance, last years.

What is the difference between wax/oils and lacquer?  
 
Sanding Wood Floors prefers using natural oil and wax products on its wood, but it is a personel preference. Asthma Safe, Per-Friendly Products, Clean Green Planet & Child-Safe ProductsMost wood floors sold in the UK are lacquered, giving a fine shine similar to satin.

Oils and wax give a shine but slightly duller, it appears a more subtle effect, you do however need to maintain the floor coating if using oils and wax based products where as lacquer finishes do not require attention other than regular cleaning.

Wood floors treated with oils and waxes can be repaired easily and without fuss unlike lacquer coatings.

How Long Will My Seal Last?

As long as you take good care of it and under normal domestic traffic conditions typical re-coating times:

  • a part acrylic seal should last 3+ years
  • a high traffic seal should last 5+ years
  • a wood floor oil will need touching u once a year if not sooner
  • a hardwax oil will need touching up once every 5 years, if not sooner.

These timings are approximate and depend on the volume of traffic and the type of shoes that go over the floor. If you really want your floors to last you might consider making the house a shoe-free zone!


Hint: Recoat your wooden floor before the seal has completely worn through and you will avoid costly re-sanding.

 The quality of the seal that goes onto your floor is perhaps the most important part of the entire sanding process.
