Depending on the chosen floor finish and the site conditions, it can be normal to notice a variety of inconsistencies that may concern some consumers. Industry and Australian standards allow for minor imperfections within or suspended within the coating system.

The main problem we as contractors face when refinishing a floor is the containment of the areas of timber flooring we are working on. To prevent people and animals trafficking on a freshly sanded or polished floor it is most important to notify all inhabitants and neighbors to keep out of the home we are working on during the time it takes to complete the work, this includes adequate drying times.
