Finishes & Seals: Protecting your sanded floor
After the wooden floor has been sanded and polished, it is protected with a wood floor seal. Some people might call this wood floor varnish, but in professional terms, varnish is only one type of wood floor seal. The quality of the seal that goes onto your floor is perhaps the most important part of the entire sanding process. Never skimp on your sanding project by choosing a cheap, inferior seal. If you want to economise on your project, we advise you opt for a lower spec rather than an inferior seal. A cheap seal will result in greater expense due to the need for frequent re-sands. Quality seals protect the finished wood, offering a stain resistant durable finish that should, with the correct maintenance, last years.
How Long Will My Seal Last?
As long as you take good care of it and under normal domestic traffic conditions typical re-coating times:

- a part acrylic seal should last 3+ years
- a high traffic seal should last 5+ years
- an oil will need touching up once every year, if not sooner.

These timings are approximate and depend on the volume of traffic and the type of shoes that go over the floor. If you really want your floors to last you might consider making the house a shoe-free zone!
