Why does the environment matter when picking out a floor finish?
Our desert environment requires us to use certain products to help maintain our floor’s shine. Floors and homes in other environments might not require the same level of product. Our nearly year-round sun means that we need to pick UV resistant outdoor finishes.
The desert sand that can be found throughout most of central and southern Arizona gets dragged into our homes creating scratches and knicks in our floor’s surface that dulls the shine. The asphalt that is commonly used in our parking lots, walkways, driveways, and sidewalks is brought into our homes on the bottom of our shoes creating scuff marks on our shiny surfaces.
What is a Floor Finish?
Floor finish is often times called by other names. Floor sealer and floor wax are two terms often used by customers when they are looking for a product that they apply to the floor to both protect and shine their floor. These products are floor ‘finishes’ because when they are applied to your floor, they create a look or a ‘finish’ that creates a level of shine from high-gloss to low gloss and every step in between. Industrial Chemical of Arizona should be your one-stop shop in Tucson. We are familiar with all different floor types and surfaces and will listen to help you select the correct product for your floor type to get that look you are trying to achieve.
Finishes are usually either water or oil based. The majority of floor finishes are water-based. They are milky-white and can be applied many ways: mopped on, applied with a flat microfiber applicator, rolled on, brushed on, or sprayed on. Industrial Chemical of Arizona recommends four to six coats of floor finish to allow for longer use. You should not need to re-finish your floor every single year. If done correctly the first time, with the correct products and techniques, your floor finish should protect your floor and look great for years to come.
Oil based sealers are generally able to be used on both interior and exterior applications and provide a much higher level of protection than a water based sealer. Despite this, they are not always the best choice for your particular floor. Depending on your skill level, floor type, and what kind of use your floor gets, we may recommend either a water based sealer, an oil based sealer, or both! Your best bet is to call or come in today so we can help you select the right product for your floor that will give you the most years of protection and beauty.
