Drying time of the finish itself depends of two things: environment of the room – humidity, temperature etc. (in warm and ventilated room, the floor finish will dry faster) and the type of the finish – Lacquer base finishes can get dry for 2-6 hours; Oil based finishes can take 24 hours to get dry. Try not to move furniture back in the room for 48 hours allowing the floor to cure properly.

Decorate first and carry out any plumbing or electrical work prior to having your floor sanded.

Especially if you are planning to stain your flooring.

A lacquered flooring will give a shiny reflective effect leaving the room feeling fresh and clean. Being lacquered makes it a harder wearing floor and a great way to make a room feel larger. An oiled flooring has an aged feel to it giving a room an authentic warm atmosphere. Great for areas that have high traffic volumes such as receptions. An oiled floor will require a maintenance coat to be applied every 16 – 24 months for residential or 4 – 6 month for floors with commercial use.
