Oil or Lacquer?
Unsure how your floor has been treated?Â You need to know so you can use the right products for future maintenance – and to remove stains.
Experiment on an out of the way area (behind a door or corner).Â Apply two drops of water.
If white spots appear under the drops within ten minutes, you have a waxed/oiled floor.
Remove the spots by gently rubbing with 000 steel wool dampened with wax.
No white spots and no flaking when you scratch the finish with a coin?Â The floor has a lacquered or varnish finish.
