Mint Floor Sanding - CareCare
o Always check with us when you are able to walk on the floor. Generally 4-5 hours after application is fine without shoes.
o The drying/curing period may be extended due to conditions such as low temperatures, high humidity and poor ventilation.
o The floor will cure completely over a period of weeks but is most vulnerable in the first 48 hours.
o Furniture replacement can occur the following day but should be lifted and placed, not dragged.
Felt guards should be placed under all furniture.
o Ideally a period of 2-3 weeks before wearing shoes on the floor is recommended.
o Do not replace rugs and carpets for 2-3 weeks.
o Don’t use any tape an the floor until curing has taken place.
