How to Apply Lacquer to Wooden Floor Boards

Wooden floor boards not only look fantastic, but are also practical. They are much easier to clean than household carpets, which can harbour dust and other allergens. If you have wooden floor boards that are in good condition, then floor sanding and varnishing is a great idea, so that you can use the natural beauty of wooden flooring. Below we share how to prepare and varnish wooden floor boards.

Preparing the wooden boards – sanding the floor

The first step you need to do is to prepare the wooden boards, and this is done via floor board sanding. This will create the correct texture for you to apply the varnish, as well as getting rid of any old paint or residual varnish. It gives you a blank canvas to work upon, helping the varnish to bond properly. It is very important that there is no dust remaining on the floor. Using a dust free floor sanding machine will help to achieve this, and remember to fully vacuum the floor once you have finished, once any residual dust has settled. Finally, you will need to give the floor a damp mop. Allow to dry before the varnishing process can begin.

Applying the lacquer

When varnishing wooden floor boards, it is best to use a polyurethane oil based varnish. This will produce a hard-wearing and waterproof finish that will not mask the true beauty of the wood. It is advisable to open all windows when varnishing the floor, to create adequate ventilation. A micro fibre roller, or a small fine brush, are the best tools for the job, and you only need to apply a thin coat. Another option is to use varnish floor pads, that come ready to use in a tub. Always work from the wall furthest away from the door, so that you don’t get trapped in the room! When applying the varnish, always work in the same direction as the wood grain, doing so will give the most natural results. You will need to wait a few hours for the floor to fully dry before applying a second coat.
