Applying White Wood Floor Finishes in the Current Climate

Posted by Terry Guilford on

I don't think anyone can dispute that the climate is changing. You may argue about why, but the facts are it IS changing. We all know about its impact on our lives with increased flooding and heatwaves, but what about the impact on our chosen floor finish, not important? Like everything in life, if you are the one affected, it is essential.

One pass with 36 grit is all that is usually required to remove an old finish and level the floor, follow this up with 60 grit...
