GREEN FINISHES FOR MERIDIAN HARDWOOD REFINISHING PROJECTS
When you look at the hardwood industry over the last 20 years you may be shocked by all the new technology. One of the big changes has been in flooring finishes. Water-based floor finish is a great option for many people, it is durable and has less drawbacks than oil based products. Along with water based products UV finishes have also been introduced. UV and water-based floor finish have lower VOCs, lower cure times and are better for you health wise. Oil based products can contain a lot of VOCs which makes them smell so badly and the cure time can be up to 60 days which means the floor is off-gassing VOCs for nearly 2 months. When you use water based finishes you still get a long wear life, 5-8 years is the recommended timeline for doing a maintenance coat.
