How to Apply Varathane No Sanding Refinishing Prep
Remove any loose dirt or dust using a damp rag. While Varathane No Sanding Refinishing Prep is compatible with all types of previously finished surfaces, it is not compatible with wax. To test the surface for wax, dampen a rag with mineral spirits and wipe it on the surface. If the rag pulls up a waxy substance, then the surface contains wax. To remove and dissolve the wax from the surface, dampen a rag with mineral spirits and wipe the surface until clean.
Working in small sections, apply No Sanding Refinishing Prep directly to the surface with a mild abrasive scrub pad attached to a pole. Using a back and forth motion following the direction of the grain in a “Z” pattern. On vertical surface apply directly to the scrub pad and follow the procedure above. Use of glove is highly recommended.
Wipe the surface clean with a damp rag or sponge mop before the No Sanding Refinishing Prep has a chance to dry. Repeat the process until all sections of the surface have been treated and allow the entire floor to dry for 30 minutes before applying a new top coat.
Laminate Floors - No Sanding Refinishing Prep is required if you are planning to apply Varathane Wood Refresher to laminate floors.
