Floor Finishes

Unless they are pre-sealed, our floors will need finishing in situ. Floor finishes should be applied in line with manufacturers’ instructions. When finishing a wood floor from Broadleaf Timber, bear the following points in mind:

  • Always make sure that the floor is clean, dry and free of dust before applying any floor finishes.
  • Prior to finishing a wood floor, remove dust with a vacuum cleaner rather than a brush to minimise dust in the air.
  • Always allow floor finishes to cure fully before moving furniture back in and using the floor as normal.
  • Do not skimp on recommended drying times between coats or coverage. This can significantly reduce the performance of the finish.
  • Make sure the room is warm (min 10º C) and well ventilated while finishing a wood floor. Remember to keep this up while the finish dries.
  • In high wear areas, consider a finish that can be locally repaired.
