Lacquering of parquet floors is best left to professionals

A parquet floor should be re-lacquered when the old layer is too worn to protect the wood. Sand off the old lacquer before re-lacquering. Expertise and special tools are needed for the sanding and lacquering of parquet floors, so these tasks should be left to professionals.

Plank floors can be lacquered without professional help

Use the brush-applied Puulattialakka Safiria to sand and lacquer plank floors and wooden stairs in your home or summer cabin. Apply the lacquer along the length of the planks, covering one or two planks at a time, starting from the wall.

Once the first layer has dried, sand the dried surface gently with sandpaper, no. 100–150, or scrape the surface with a steel putty knife or scraper. Vacuum the surface and wipe it with a damp cloth to remove dust. Repeat the lacquering process 1–2 times Wood floor lacquer usually takes around 2–4 hours to dry between applications. This method uses around 3–5m²/l of lacquer.
