Floorboard Polish – Where to Start?

Floor Polishing Example
Did you know that applying the wrong polish to your wooden floorboards can cause bending, cracking, edge bonding or clumping?
When selecting a polish or finish for your timber floorboards, take into account these factors:
  • The age of the floorboards
  • Floor Use – such as high-traffic office or shop;  yoga or dance studio, etc.
  • Style – the look you would like for your floor – matt, gloss or satin
  • Climate – such as excessive humidity, heat or use of air conditioning
  • Season – if not treated correctly, floors which are laid in winter may crack in summertime
  • The type and size of timber floorboards.  For instance, wide, thin floorboards require a different treatment than narrower, thicker floorboards.
After you have considered the above-mentioned factors, you can then select a finish:

Surface Finish

– This type of finish adheres to the top of floorboards, forming a clear, protective coating on the wood.  Due to its durability, water resistance and being low in ongoing maintenance, it is one of the most popularly used finishes.

Penetrating Finish

– Penetrating finishes (either waxes and oils) are absorbed, so they protect the timber from within. Waxes have a high-gloss appearance and oils achieve either a satin or matt look. Both waxes and oils have different purposes.

Composition Finish

– Composition finish is another coating providing strength and allowing movement in the wood while maintaining great durability.
There are advantages and disadvantages to every one of these finishes. One of our experienced flooring experts can assess your floors, discuss each option in detail, and give personalised recommendations for your needs.
It is best not to guess what is needed for your floor.  By using the appropriate floor polishers for the floor you have, you could be saving yourself money in the long run by ensuring the best possible maintenance in between more involved work i.e. floor sanding.
