Best Way To Seal Engineered Wood Flooring
The steps to seal the Engineered Hardwood Flooring are as follows:
- Sand: The first and the foremost step is to sand the area with the help of the 10-grit sanding sponge until the floor become uniformly dull. This will help the area to prepare for the staining and will eliminate the dirt, blemishes as well as other surface imperfections.
- Vacuum: The other important step is to vacuum the sanded area, then wipe the area with a tack cloth for dust removal.
- Wood Stain: Now stir the can of the best quality wood stain, stir with the help of the bristle brush, so that all the content at the bottom of the can is thoroughly mixed. After that simply saturate the area with the wood stain in the direction of the grains, and then with the help of the clean rag quickly wipe away the access stain before it dries.
- Dry: Let the wood stain dry for almost 24 hours, and once it dries then use a thin coat of the sanding sealer over the stain. Apply it in the direction of the grain with long strokes, wait for the coat to dry then lightly sand with the help of 280-grit sanding sponge.
- Polyurethane Wood Varnish: Once the sanding is completed then apply the polyurethane wood varnish coat. Apply it with the foam applicator or painters brush, allow to dry for overnight then sand again with the 280-grit sanding sponge. Then apply the last coat unsanded.
