Water warning

Posted on September 18th, 2010 In: Blog, Wood Floor Sealing & Varnishing Blogs

Bathroom Wood Floor Sanding and Sealing has to be done only with waterresistant finishes, such as Osmo Hardwax Oil or Bona TrafficEven after wood floor restoration, water leaks can threaten your beautiful new floor.

If this happens to you and you discover it quickly, take prompt action:

– stop the source of the leak either from a tank or radiator
(show your family members where the stopcocks are..).

– allow the floor to dry by removing boards, mopping up and allowing the water on the concrete base to evaporate.

– don’t worry about further damaging wet boards that are beyond repair – and adjacent boards.  It’s preferable to leaving water underneath.  Oak boards lying in water can become so badly stained that even floor sanding won’t restore them.

– take photos of the damage before and after removing boards for insurance purposes.

– on drying, the boards are likely to buckle and will need replacing.  Matching with new boards can be tricky, so the solution might be a complete new floor.
