Years ago, when I ran a floor refinishing business in Iowa City, we didn’t have very many options. You simply used a floor until the finish was worn out, then you sanded and refinished it. My wife Leigh Ann’s veterinary clinic floor, however, was neither worn out nor in great condition, which left her uncertain what to do.
Today, I explained to her, we have options, starting with cleaning a dirty floor using Minwax® Hardwood Floor Cleaner, for many times what looks to be wear is simply a layer of ground-in dirt.
But the parade of animals passing through her examination room did more than just leave it dirty. They wore down the finish. But even when cleaning isn’t enough, we have another option: Minwax® Hardwood Floor Reviver. This is a quick and easy way to add a layer of clear protection over your existing polyurethane finish. Just squirt it on a 3′ x 3′ section….
Then use a damp painter’s pad to spread the Hardwood Floor Reviver across the floor. Do not spread it too thin! Work in the direction of the wood’s grain, using a back-and-forth motion, then complete it by smoothing out any pad marks, again always going with the grain.
Hardwood Floor Reviver leaves a permanent protective coating on your floor, which will help renew the floor’s beauty and shine. You can reapply it as needed (usually every 3-6 months) to keep your floors looking as beautiful as the ones in her exam room do now.
Until next time,
Thanks for stopping by!
