|The best commercial finish may be no finish at all.
Searching for the perfect, long-lasting, low maintenance finishing system for high traffic exotic hardwood floors? We have the answer – a penetrating commercial system with no surface coating.
The Dura seal (mostly natural but available in colors) is applied and burnished in with steel wool or red polishing and buffer. The application includes penetration, color, sealer, friction to dry sealer and protection – so nothing spilled will penetrate wood.
The 2nd part of this system was Renovator – a cleaner, sealer, and for color if needed you could add 25% stain (to re-stain areas ). Due to tighter regulations for V.O.C.’s, Renovator is no longer available. The good news, however, is that the same maintenance can still be accomplished. Installers can legally make their own safe alternative using a 50-60% odorless mineral spirits and 40-50% DuraSeal Natural or DuraSeal Stain/Sealer to add color to a stained floor.
To renew the floor, unlike a sand and refinish with traditional finishes, a night crew could spray buff, or mop on burnish (with steel wool or a red polishing pad) with no downtime for the establishment. This system has been tested in shopping malls, clothing stores, and restaurants.
In the end this commercial application will outlast and outperform all others. It’s a system tested for over 30 years old and still standing strong. The wood will not wear out like polyurethane finishes – especially with exotic hardwoods 2x or 3x harder than domestic oak.
