We offer UV floor finishing services in Milwaukee, Chicago and throughout the areas in between. Not only do UV finished floors provide an exceptional level of durability, they’re an environmentally friendly floor finishing option for homeowners concerned with their impact on the environment.
The Benefits of UV Floor Finishing
Hardwood floors refinished with UV (ultraviolet) curing technology offer a number of unique benefits that non-UV floors simply cannot match. For instance:
- UV finished floors are nearly twice as hard as pre-finished floors and floors cured with non-UV finishes.
- UV floor finishing cures in seconds, instead of the 30 days that some conventional finishes can take.
- UV cured floors are odor-free and produce zero VOCs (volatile organic compounds), making them a green choice for home and business owners concerned about the environment.
- Because they’re harder, UV finished floors are more scratch resistant, scuff resistant, and resistant to marks from shoe heels and soles.
- UV cured floors resist stains and chemical intrusion better than non-UV floors.
Whether you own a business and can’t risk the downtime or you’re a homeowner who would love to come home from work to beautiful newly refinished floors, professional UV floor finishing is the answer. In just a few, short hours you can have completely refinished floors that are 100% cured and ready for use.
Caring for Your New UV Cured Floor
If your hardwood floors were cured with UV floor finishing, there are a few precautions that you will want to take to keep your new floors looking fantastic for years to come. These include:
- Don’t let water pool on your floor at any time, and don’t “over wet” your floor when cleaning it. Just use a damp mop or sponge to clean it.
- Don’t let shoes with spikes or “spike heels” to be worn, as these can indent the wood.
- Don’t wax your floor, as waxes can dull the finish. In fact, if you wax your floor you may need to have the entire floor sanded down again and re-coated.
- Don’t use harsh chemicals that could damage the floor’s finish, such as pine soap, ammonia, oil soap, or bleach.
