Our experts recommend dusting your floor once or twice a week to preserve its original appearance for as long as possible.

It’s recommended to thoroughly wash your floor about once a month with a cleaning product designed for this purpose. Avoid pouring the product directly on the floor to avoid damaging it, but rather spray it directly on a dust mop. It’s best to use reusable, machine-washable mops.

It is recommended to apply a minimum of 2 coats of varnish to your floor. However, our experts advise applying 3 coats for optimal adhesion and protection.

Yes and no! There are 2 ways to do this: you can varnish a floor that has been oiled beforehand. However, it’s important to note that oil and varnish are two different types of finishes, and they can interact in unpredictable ways. Here are our tips:

NO. If the floor has been oiled with natural oil and the process causes the wood fibres to absorb the oil, then it’s impossible to varnish the floor, even with adequate sanding. The varnish will peel quite quickly since the two finishes are not compatible during this oil application.

YES. If your floor has been factory-oiled with UV technology and the manufacturer’s process ensures that the oil remains on the surface of the wood, then it would be possible to sand your floor and then apply a varnish. The important thing is to sand adequately in order to then apply a varnish finish.

Step 1: Vacuum all over to leave no dust residue.

Step 2: Pour a small amount of Finitec surface preparation on your floor.

Step 3: Sand your floor in the direction of the wood grain.

Step 4: Apply 3 to 4 coats of Finitec Synergy varnish.

Step 1: Clean your steps/stairs.

Step 2: Strip your stairs. Using a brush, apply the stripper to your steps, leave to act for 5 minutes and then scrape it off with a plastic scraper to avoid damaging your steps.

Step 3: Cover all imperfections. For cracks, we recommend using wood putty. For the holes, our experts use “flush plugs” (wooden washers of the same species).

Step 4: Sand your steps. To do this, you can use an orbital sander to help you pass over flat surfaces in a back-and-forth motion following the wood grain. For the sanding of the corners, we recommend using a triangular sander in order to reach any areas that are inaccessible with an orbital sander. Regarding the sanding grit, we recommend that you first sand using 120-grit sandpaper, followed by 150 grit for an optimal finish.

Step 5: Vacuum everywhere to remove all dust residue.

Step 6: Apply 1 coat of stain using a stain sponge and 2-3 coats of water-based varnish in the finish of your choice using a sponge provided for this purpose or a cloth.

Lastly, place the rags and the sponge into a bucket filled with water to avoid combustion.
