We just applied 6 thick coats of finish and our floors look beat up already. What happened?

Why Do My Floors Looked Beat Up After Several Coats of Floor Finish Have Been Applied?

It’s Usually Too Much Finish Applied Too Quickly

This is one of the most common problems novice users have with floor finishes. The user applied “too much finish too fast.”

What happens in this instance is that the first few coats of finish haven’t cured, trapping moisture, which keeps the top layers of finish soft. This leads to excessive marking and soiling.

Apply a Maximum of Four Coats of Finish Per Job

While we’re big believers in “finish building”, it needs to be done over many years with regular, proper maintenance and the professional application of a quality, commercial-grade floor finish.  We apply a maximum of four coats of finish per job.
