How To Polish Wood Flooring?
Here is our"how to" manual:
Make Distance. Like every major cleaning exercise, if you plan to polish your hardwood flooring, it's best if you're able to clear the room of all furnishings and rugs. This will provide you with space to work and will help avoid the need to drag heavy furnishing round the space, potentially causing harm to areas you have just polished. If it is not feasible to clear the whole room, eg. If your furniture is too thick to eliminate, or you do not have room to move it to, at least try to work the space in two parts.
To begin with a small, hand-sized pool of gloss which you can use to coat your applicator.
Once your applicator is coated, you should begin to operate in a corner of the room, constantly pouring a tiny, hand-sized pool of polish right onto the floor and working in arms-length segments in the path of the grain.
Each time you proceed to another section, make certain to allow a slight overlap, otherwise you risk having gaps in your polish.
As soon as you've covered the whole floor, leave it to dry, every manufacturer will tell you precisely how long this will take, but normally it should take anywhere between half an hour and an hour.
Employing this process, there's no requirement for buffing.
If you choose a two-step polishing Procedure...again you will need to carefully read the manufacturers instructions but essentially here's what you Need to expect to do:
Use the polish paste with a soft cloth, functioning in sections of this space, again beginning in a corner so you don't have to walk over areas that you have finished. Best TIP: Sections of just over a metre are both workable and accessible.
Once you've let your waxed section of flooring dry (according to the manufacturers instructions), it is going to begin to appear white and it is now time to start buffing.
Ideally you need to use an electric floor buffer using a polishing mind to buff your floor. This is not only going to be much simpler than buffing by hand, but will provide a more uniform result.
Continue this process until you've completed the whole floor.
Appreciate the Outcome!
