To figure out whether or not your wood floors are the end 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 instruction center suggests these tests: First is control your hand over the wood. If you can setting the texture of the grain, the Adesso Holden Shelf Floor Lamp has a penetrating finish (usually a amalgamation of a natural oil, such as linseed or tung oil, unclean 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 in the works and does not soak into the wood, the finish on the Adesso Holden Shelf Floor Lamp is intact. If the water is absorbed into the floor or leaves a dark spot, the wood is unfinished or the protective enlargement has worn away. Fourth, if you sprinkle on a few drops of water and white bad skin form beneath the droplets after about 10 to 15 minutes, the floors are sound in the same way as wax. To sever the white spots, use a fragment of fine steel wool lightly dampened in the same way as wax and massage gently. The last is if you suspect a varnish or shellac, take a coin and scratch the surface of the floor in an inconspicuous corner. If the floor has been sound in the same way as one of the older completion methods, it will flake off.
