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 guidance center suggests these tests: First is control your hand beyond the wood. If you can tone the texture of the grain, the Quick Step Flooring Milton Keynes has a penetrating finish (usually a concentration of a natural oil, such as linseed or tung oil, mixed 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, area a few drops of water. If the water beads up and does not soak into the wood, the finish on the Quick Step Flooring Milton Keynes 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 a skin condition form beneath the droplets after not quite 10 to 15 minutes, the floors are sound in the same way as wax. To separate the white spots, use a piece 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, recognize a coin and cut the surface of the floor in an inconspicuous corner. If the floor has been sound in the same way as one of the older attainment methods, it will flake off.
