You will need

  • wooden floor
  • sanding machine and sandpaper in various grits (from rough to fine); we got the professionals in for this part
  • Woodoc Water-Borne FLOOR Matt White
  • good-quality wide brush
  • 150-grit sandpaper

1 We got professionals in to sand the floor before we applied the sealer. They started with rough sandpaper and then moved on to medium followed by fine sandpaper. 

2 Make sure the floor is clean and dust-free before you apply the sealer.

3 Apply the Woodoc Water-Borne FLOOR Matt White to the bare floorboards with a wide brush; apply with the grain. Do about 3–4 planks at a time.

4 Let it dry completely; drying times will vary, depending on weather conditions.

5 Lightly sand the sealer with the 150-grit sandpaper, by hand. Remove all the dust.

6 Apply a second coat in the same way you did the first coat. Let it dry and sand lightly again. Remove dust.

7 Apply a third and final coat. Do not sand after the third coat.
