A maintenance coat means adding an extra layer of finish to your hardwood or engineered floor. This process is a quick, cheap, and incredibly impactful way to maintain your floors and have them looking like new again in no time!
This is a great way to fix up your house for resale or in between renters. Many dog owners will use this technique to keep their floors from looking scratched or weathered.
Maintenance coats are an essential part of making sure your floor lasts a lifetime. Regardless of how much or little the floor is used, eventually, the original finish starts to wear away and exposes raw wood. Once the floor reaches this stage, its too late. The whole floor will need a full re-sand if you wait until this happens. Maintenance coats are usually a one-day process, After the final coat it should be dry and ready to be walked on again with 3-4 hours!
Maintenance coasts are approximately three times cheaper than a full re-sand, making it an excellent option to quickly freshen up old floors.
On pre-finished or engineered floors, we can not do a light sand creating scratches on the floor for the coating to cling to, so instead we will do what is called a chemical wash. This process will allow is to recoat the flooring without sanding.
