But in professional terms, varnish is only one type of wood floor lacquer.
We prefer to use the word 'lacquer' for the finishing coat material,
Using carefully selected materials and methods, we can help keep your floor in fine condition whilst enhancing and maintaining the patina created by many years of use.
They are attractive and hard wearing, and over the years have been the most popular finish for wood floors.
This is a relatively hard, smooth surface coating.
A good quality wood floor will have several layers of hard lacquer applied to it which will be extremely resistant to fluids and scratches and will require minimal maintenance whilst looking fantastic.
The lacquer applied will normally have either a matt sheen, or a more shiny, satin finish.
The matt lacquer gives the same impression as an oiled floor but has the added benefits of the reduced maintenance required from a lacquered floor.

With a passion for creating that perfect finish, we're here to help you find the right floor finish and colour to suit, your needs and your style.
A cheap varnish (B&Q, Wickes or Homebase) all have a low solid content and will result in greater expense due to the need for frequent re-sands.
Applying cheap products can leave an orange peel effect and colour that can look terrible in natural daylight.
When lacquer starts to lose its sheen, it is a very easy task to apply a scred & coat – this revives a scratched and dull surface giving a newly finished look and continued protection against wear.
Oils for wood floors are very fluid.
They penetrate the wood and protect it against stains and marking, offering a non-filmogenic finish (meaning that it is not limited to the surface of the wood).
In keeping with lacquered floors, good quality oiled floors will have several layers of oil applied.
Superficial scratches can be removed by sanding the affected area and applying maintenance oil.
To maintain the surface protection, oiled floors should be thoroughly cleaned and re-oiled every year or so with a good quality maintenance oil.
Both lacquered and oiled floors should be vacuumed regularly or swept with a soft broom, and we recommend that they be cleaned on a regular basis.
