Using floor paint to protect hardwood floor

Using floor paint to protect hardwood floor

Hardwood flooring has its own unique visual appeal but protecting it from damages is a major challenge. Over time the floor is bound to wear out, even more so if you have children or pets. To make your wooden floor resistant to everyday wears and tears, it is a worthwhile idea to invest in floor paint made specially to protect your valuable wooden floor. Exterior wood paint will make your hardwood floor look shiny and smooth while making it resistant to scratches and knocks. Using Wood Primer before painting on wooden surfaces is a good precaution to take.

Applying floor paint to your hardwood wooden floor is an easy process and you can do it all by yourself. First of all, you will need to prepare your floor for colouring.

Floor paint can be applied with a roller, brush or a pad. A pad generally holds more paint that a brush making application of paint an easier process. A pad covers the floor in longer smoother strokes.

Dip the pad evenly into the paint, ensuring only the flock is covered and pull it towards you, in the direction of the wood grain. Apply a minimum of 2 coats, allowing 46 hours before recoating.

Once dry, not only will your floor have the perfect finish, it will also be resistant to flaking, peeling and chipping and maintaining its finish for longer.

Choosing the right floor paint is important, a good floor paint will ensure that your floor is resistant to water, oil and household chemicals and easy to wipe clean..
