Although not a common problem, this is a problem that affects polyurethane finishes and can occur soon after a timber floor is finished. And with long term effects! The only way to remove ghosting is a total re-sand and finish!! 😲😱👎
Here are some images that we have pulled from the web, that demonstrate the damage of "Ghosting" on timber flooring.
How can you prevent this issue?
It is very important that you do not walk on the floor with wet feet or get water on the floor for 7 days. Also, do NOT walk on the floor with shoes for a minimum of 24 hours up to 48 hours after. The floor can be walked on ONLY in socks.
Over time as the coating darkens with UV, these marks show up as a lighter cloudy appearance. Sometimes imprints only become obvious after one year or more!
So, taking precautionary care and following maintenance instructions for your new floor, will ensure you have a great floor now and into the distant future!
