Sealing and Maintenance of wood floors
Three coats of seal and two coats of oil are standard, but additional coats are available.
Seal longevity is dependent on traffic conditions and maintenance carried out by the client.
We recommend maintaining your floor with professional maintenance products only.
Professional maintenance products and yearly maintenance programs are available through the office.
Seals are generally touch dry in 3 hours, oils in 14 hours. It is the client’s responsibility to avoid contact with seals during the curing time.
While we will aim for 100% perfection, hand-applied seals may not show complete uniformity. Recoating at the client’s request is chargeable.
Seals require 72 hours curing time and should be protected while curing.
Floors should not be covered, nor furniture replaced until the curing process is complete. We cannot be held liable for marking to floors after the job is complete.
Stone and tiled floors may take longer to dry, especially if they are very porous, therefor a further visit may be required to return and seal the floors once they have dried.
We recommend that after the floor has restored you attach pads to the feet of all furniture. This will prevent unnecessary scratching and will increase the life of the floor.
It is not the responsibility Williams Floor Restoration to protect floors after completion of the job.
A maintenance sheet with guidance of how to care for your floors is supplied with every restoration project.
It is the client’s responsibility to ensure rooms are completely empty of furniture and other tradespeople at the start of the work. Curtains should be taken down or tied back where possible and wires should be taped up so that they do not touch the floor.
If rooms are not left empty, while every effort is made to be careful, Williams Floor Services cannot be held liable for any damage that occurs during the removal of furniture.
We recommend that floors are completed as the final part of the project.
Our sanding process is reported to be 98% dust-free. Small amounts of dust are produced, and this may be further affected if a large amount of hand sanding or repairs are necessary.
Although due care and diligence will be exercised due to the nature of the machinery used skirting boards may be liable to marking. Williams Floor Restoration cannot be held responsible for unavoidable marking nor the costs of redecoration.
Hours of Work

Due to the natural movement of wood, the filling cannot be guaranteed and can fail at any time.
Repairs will be made as necessary to make good the floor surface unless otherwise instructed by the client.
Substructure repairs will only be made after consultation with the client. If repairs are required, an estimate will be supplied to the client, and the cost of the said repairs will be over and above the initial estimate submitted.
