To figure out whether or not your wood floors are the end taking into account a polyurethane, shellac, wax or varnish, or have a finish that has worn away and is no longer providing coverage, the American Hardwood guidance middle suggests these tests: First is govern your hand exceeding the wood. If you can air the texture of the grain, the Eternity Flooring Antique Walnut has a penetrating finish (usually a interest of a natural oil, such as linseed or tung oil, impure taking into account additives for drying) topped taking into account wax. Second, in an out-of-the-way spot, dab on a little paint remover. If the finish bubbles up, it is a surface finish, taking into account polyurethane, which coats the floor in a protective layer.
The third is in an out-of-the-way area, area a few drops of water. If the water beads occurring and does not soak into the wood, the finish on the Eternity Flooring Antique Walnut is intact. If the water is absorbed into the floor or leaves a dark spot, the wood is unfinished or the protective increase has worn away. Fourth, if you sprinkle on a few drops of water and white bad skin form beneath the droplets after just about 10 to 15 minutes, the floors are sound taking into account wax. To surgically remove the white spots, use a fragment of good steel wool lightly dampened taking into account wax and daub gently. The last is if you suspect a varnish or shellac, agree to a coin and cut the surface of the floor in an inconspicuous corner. If the floor has been sound taking into account one of the older finishing methods, it will flake off.
