Deciding which floor finish to use on a home is really a big decision. It’s a coating that will be lived on, touched, eventually worn away and then refinished over a long period of time; sometimes in the time it takes to raise children. Since floor finishes are notoriously stinky and dangerous products we have spent a lot of time at Earthpaint working on the best floor finish for various scenarios. Chemical sensitivity, high performance alternatives, isocyanate free floor finishes and sustainable / renewable resource based floor finishes. For these purposes we have finishes that could be used on a cutting board or a floor. There are finishes that can be driven over with a hot fork lift or coated on a gymnasium floor. Rubbing oils, film forming, oil based, water based, beeswax based… All sorts.
Since there are so many great options it can be hard to decide which way to go. This is why we use the Ask Earthpaint tool so much. It’s a great way to get custom recommendations based each particular person or families needs. Specific nuances such as childrens health issues, elderly or compromised immune systems, high traffic areas and desired appearance need to be considered carefully.
