Sealing Floors for Lasting Protection

Sealing old floors is an integral part of the wood floor restoration process. Once we’ve repaired and sanded them, we seal the floors to protect them against heavy footfall, moisture and impact damage.

Depending on the client’s preferences and the type of wood we’re treating, we use either polyurethane, solvent-based or water-based sealants to provide lasting protection to the floors we work on.

By sealing old wooden floors with a range of different products, you can choose the natural shade that works best in the space.

Caring for a Sealed Floor

We use a range of specialist tools and products to restore and seal the floors we work on. But you can play your part in prolonging the life of your sealed floor by following these guidelines:

  • Use felt protector pads under furniture legs
  • Never drag your furniture across the floor
  • Clean up spillages immediately
  • Sweep your floor regularly
  • Clean your floor with a microfibre mop and a dedicated wood cleaning spray
  • Avoid the use of abrasive cleaning products, scourers, steam cleaners and saturated mops

How Much Does it Cost to Seal Floors?

The cost of  sealing depends on the surface area, the type of wood and the homeowner’s personal preferences. The final price for our floor sealing services will also depend on the sealant required for your project. We use water-based, solvent-based and polyurethane solvents to achieve different finishes.

We are a trusted floor restoration company because we work with honesty and integrity. When we estimate the cost to seal a floor, rest assured it’s our lowest price. Get in touch today to tell us more about your floor sealing project, and we’ll do our best to give you an accurate quote.

Faqs
How do you seal old wood floors?
After preparing and sanding or buffing the floor, we use a brush or roller to apply the sealant evenly. When we use polyurethane, we take extra care to brush with the grain of the wood. We may then lightly sand the floor before applying a second coat.
Can you seal hardwood floors without sanding?
Yes. If the floor is in reasonably good condition, we’ll buff the top to remove the upper layer of sealant. We then apply a refresher coat of sealant. This is useful if you simply want to reseal a floor you had restored just a few years ago.
What is the best way to clean a sealed wooden floor?
We recommend using a microfibre mop (damp, not wet) and a little dishwashing detergent. Let the mop do the work, not the water. Wring out your mop every time you rinse it, as too much water on a sealed floor can cause damage.
Can I add wood oils to a sealed floor?
Unfortunately, you can’t, as the oils won’t be able to penetrate the surface of the wood. You’ll most likely end up with a stick accumulation, which might prove very difficult to remove. If you think your sealed floor is looking dry, you may need the services of a floor restoration expert.
Can you refinish a very old wood floor?
This depends on the strength and condition of the floor. If it has already been finished and resealed several times, we may recommend replacement. Every time a floor is refinished, a layer of wood is removed. And over time, this can cause the boards to become thinner. Other issues such as damp, woodworm and general wear and tear might also prevent resealing. But if the floor is strong, stable and in reasonably good condition, it doesn’t matter how old it is.

Excellent, clean and fast service. They sanded the floors perfectly, beautifully stained the boards and varnished to an extremely professional standard, and cleaned up very well. Couldn’t have been a better service from Wooden Flooring Experts, especially as they were fixing a job that another company had performed very badly.

We used Wooden Flooring Experts to sand all of our original + damaged floorboards. They were super responsive and great to deal with during the process of choosing them, and when they were doing the job they always arrived on time and communicated throughout. We couldn't recommend these guys more if you needed expert floor sanding, amazing!

Great experience with the team at Wooden Flooring Experts. They arrived early and worked hard to get our floors done quickly and perfectly. We had a lot of gaps to be filled and lots of small corners which made this hard, but they managed to get it done! The difference between before and after is amazing.
