A Guide To Painting Floors
Taking the time before painting to properly prep your surface will save you time and money on repainting later on. The first step in floor painting perfection is testing your surface.
Depending on your surface here are the tests you need to conduct:
- Existing hardwood floors require a simple surface test
- Interior work on concrete and wooden floors will need a latex or oil based paint, while laminate floors will not accept paint. For this reason you need to do a surface test, paint and small section and watch for any reactions
- Finally, for floors with an existing finish a compatibility test should be conducted. If any wrinkling, lifting or discolouration occurs the former finish will need to be removed.
Once you have completed this step, begin prepping your surface for paint. Begin by scuffing your floor with grit paper, which can be found in our accessories section. Follow by vacuuming any dust and wiping the surface down, this will ensure maximum adherence for your floor paint. If your floor is prepped and fully dry, you should now apply your primer. Some trade floor paints will be self priming, but it is best to check if an extra priming layer is recommended. Allow this layer to completely dry then begin applying your chosen floor paint. Add a thinning agent if one is required. Then using a roller affixed to an extension pole work in quick, even movements. Try to consistently paint in one direction and do not overload the roller. When you’ve finished your entire floor, immediately clean your roller and brushes so that it can be used for future touch ups.
