Before Using Ronseal Clear Diamond Hard Floor Varnish
Punch in all nails and fill holes with an appropriate shade of Ronseal Multi-Purpose Woodfiller.
All traces of old waxes, polishes, oils or paints must be completely removed.
Sand the floor, preferably with a machine sander in the direction of the grain.
Wood block floors should be sanded twice in two directions at right angles to each other.
Start with a medium grade sandpaper and complete with 120 grade sandpaper, ensuring that the edges of the room are well sanded.
Avoid inhaling dust by wearing a suitable face mask.
Allow dust to settle and remove by vacuuming.
Wipe over with white spirit and allow to dry thoroughly.
Previously Varnished or Pre-finished floors
Ensure that the surface is clean and free from wax, polish or other contaminants.
Thoroughly abrade to form a key using 120 grade sandpaper or wet and dry paper.
Remove dust by vacuuming and wipe over with white spirit and allow to dry.
Varnish in poor condition should be completely removed.
Test a small area first for coating adhesion and/or compatibility prior to treating the whole floor.
