MAINTENANCE OF K ÄHRS WOOD FLOORS    7 MAINTENANCE OF LACQUERED FLOORS RENOVATION (RE-LACQUERING) The main reason for re-lacquering is that after many years’ use, the floor needs to be ”freshened up”. For Kährs floors with silk matt lacquer: The surface to be finished must be free of dust, dirt and other foreign materials. If the floor surface is heavily contaminated, use a rotary floor scrubber (for screeding) to ensure that the floor is free from grease and dirt. The temperature of the floor should not be below 14°C nor exceed 28°C. Ideal is 20°C floor temperature and a relative humidity of...

MAINTENANCE OF K ÄHRS WOOD FLOORS    10 MAINTENANCE OF OILED FLOORS MAINTENANCE ON DEMAND How often the floor then needs maintaining depends on use, cleaning, exposure to sun light etc. A couple of additional, more frequent, maintenance treatments carried out in the first year gives an extra-strong, moisture-resistant and easily cleaned surface. The normal frequency of subsequent maintenance is at least twice a year. Remember that areas subjected to greater wear than the rest of the floor can be given localized maintenance. The higher the frequency, the better the results. The surface to be maintained...
