Liming Brisbane Floors

Lime washed Stairs

Budget Floor Sanding recently completed a floor sanding Tarragindi job which involved finishing the timber floor and stairs with a white limed finish. The floor and timber stairs were hoop pine, a pale coloured timber conducive to white liming. The floor polishing liming product used was Porters White Wash.

Firstly the timber flooring must be sanded to a very high quality to remove any sanding marks and scratches. Then the Porters Lime wash product is brushed onto the floor. Great care must be taken with this so that an even finish is achieved. The liming wash is then left to dry for 72 hours.

The next stage is to apply three coats of a water based floor finish. In this case Enviropro 2 pack satin finish was used. Water based products must be used over the white wash as they are non yellowing products.
