To figure out whether or not your wood floors are done in the same way as a polyurethane, shellac, wax or varnish, or have a finish that has worn away and is no longer providing coverage, the American Hardwood suggestion middle suggests these tests: First is rule your hand over the wood. If you can vibes the texture of the grain, the Rubber Flooring With Holes has a penetrating finish (usually a combination of a natural oil, such as linseed or tung oil, poisoned in the same way as additives for drying) topped in the same way as wax. Second, in an out-of-the-way spot, dab on a tiny paint remover. If the finish bubbles up, it is a surface finish, in the same way as polyurethane, which coats the floor in a protective layer.
The third is in an out-of-the-way area, place a few drops of water. If the water beads occurring and does not soak into the wood, the finish on the Rubber Flooring With Holes is intact. If the water is absorbed into the floor or leaves a dark spot, the wood is unfinished or the protective buildup has worn away. Fourth, if you sprinkle on a few drops of water and white bad skin form beneath the droplets after very nearly 10 to 15 minutes, the floors are unquestionable in the same way as wax. To cut off the white spots, use a piece of fine steel wool lightly dampened in the same way as wax and smooth gently. The last is if you suspect a varnish or shellac, resign yourself to a coin and scrape the surface of the floor in an inconspicuous corner. If the floor has been unquestionable in the same way as one of the older ability methods, it will flake off.
