We use two types of floor polishing materials:

  • Solvent based polish which last for 5 -7 years but has a strong odor and require the occupants of the house to move out until the smell is fully vented.
  • Waterbased polish which last for around 3 years and completely odorless and occupants can stay in the house while the work is carried out

I want to change the timber floor color, is that possible?

Yes, it is possible to change the timber floor color, but it will require deep sanding to the whole floor to remove the existing polish first to get to the bare timber and then apply the stain over the timber boards surface before proceeding to the polishing stage, this process will take one full day.

Yes, it is highly recommended to avoid any inconsistency with the floor finish if we have to polish around existing furniture.
