Get rid of the orange floor, use Bona!
I love to get rid of the orange solvent based coatings on old floors. It's amazing what a difference it makes just to sand and expose the raw timber. People often get supprised how light the floors are regardless what type it is. I primarely use a Swedish coating called Bona Traffic HD. It retains the natural beauty of the floors without changing colour. It's not cheap, but well worth the monnies considering you can move in on the floors after just 24 hrs ( after the last coat). Also there is very little smell as it has low solvent content (VOC) - less than 5 %. Being a top of the line product with 67% higher wear resistance than the normal Bona Traffic. I have recoated a 10 year old Tassie oak flooring wich had the normal Bona Traffic with Traffic HD and the customers where very happy. So I use the best quallity as often as possible.Here are some before and after shots of a Baltic Pine floor in Brighton.
