Surface is water repellent, dirt resistant, and resistant to wine, beer, coffee, milk, water e.t.c. Retains its natural appearance and feel. 2 coats applied.
Wax. A wax finish is not as common as the previous due to the maintenance needed to keep it fresh. To maintain a waxed floor it should be buffed every 3 to 4 months with a rotary floor buffer and should also be re waxed every 8 to 10 months to bring the floor back to its original glory. Quick sand offer this service and are happy to maintain the waxed floor at a small cost.
