Step Flooring promises to bring out the true natural beauty of a hardwood floor. We are proud to introduce a three step varnishing process, sometimes referred to as waxing, which will give your hardwood floors a brilliant clean appearance, an appearance that is well deserved. - First your floor is carefully cleaned. At this time all dirt, grime and/or debris is removed using a soft broom or lightweight vacuum cleaner, followed by a damp mop. It is important to remove grit and dirt from hardwood floors. Dirt and grit are the biggest enemies when it comes to scratching or scouring the floor finish. - Next, your wood floor is buffed using a high speed buffing machine to bring up the existing radiant shine in your timber. This process removes all scuff marks from the floor and brings back the shine as well as it cleans the floor - Finally, we apply different types of sealers to your floor depending on the type of wood and the condition of your floor. Sealing of your hardwood floor can be done only after the floor has been buffed. The floor has to be clean and completely dry before polishing it. Sealing entirely depends on the type of your wood floor, its age and its usage. You can be sure that your floor will look more alive after the treatment. It will be clean, shiny and well protected. Your wood floor will be dry within 2-4 hours and fully cure in 12-72 hours. Which means that you can walk on the floor after 4 hours of the treatment, but you should avoid getting your wood floor wet until it has has fully cured. The professional at Step Flooring will be able to guide you through the options available from light ash stains to high gloss dark polishes. Let our experts help you with the following decisions: Colour of the stain Type of stain Level of sheen Quality of durability required Timeframe you have for the treatment Environmentally Friendly options
