To figure out whether or not your wood floors are finished 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 counsel center suggests these tests: First is rule your hand higher than the wood. If you can mood the texture of the grain, the Mohawk Hardwood Flooring Oak Autumn has a penetrating finish (usually a concentration of a natural oil, such as linseed or tung oil, impure 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 little 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, area a few drops of water. If the water beads up and does not soak into the wood, the finish on the Mohawk Hardwood Flooring Oak Autumn 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 nearly 10 to 15 minutes, the floors are unassailable 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 daub gently. The last is if you suspect a varnish or shellac, understand a coin and cut the surface of the floor in an inconspicuous corner. If the floor has been unassailable in the same way as one of the older endowment methods, it will flake off.
