To figure out whether or not your wood floors are over and done with in the manner of a polyurethane, shellac, wax or varnish, or have a finish that has worn away and is no longer providing coverage, the American Hardwood guidance center suggests these tests: First is run your hand over the wood. If you can setting the texture of the grain, the Eternity Flooring Dark Wenge has a penetrating finish (usually a immersion of a natural oil, such as linseed or tung oil, infected in the manner of additives for drying) topped in the manner of 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 manner of 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 happening and does not soak into the wood, the finish on the Eternity Flooring Dark Wenge is intact. If the water is absorbed into the floor or leaves a dark spot, the wood is unfinished or the protective deposit has worn away. Fourth, if you sprinkle on a few drops of water and white a skin condition form beneath the droplets after about 10 to 15 minutes, the floors are unassailable in the manner of wax. To separate the white spots, use a fragment of fine steel wool lightly dampened in the manner of wax and smear gently. The last is if you suspect a varnish or shellac, admit a coin and cut the surface of the floor in an inconspicuous corner. If the floor has been unassailable in the manner of one of the older completion methods, it will flake off.
