HardWood floor...Question ?

Customer asked me if the hardwood floor was sealed ?

Anybody know what she was talking abt ?


Here’s a tip from a website I found:

Lacquered, varnished, shellacked and untreated floors: Although technically surface finishes, lacquers, varnishes and shellacs are not as resistant to moisture, spills and wear as the other sealants mentioned. Treat floors with these finishes and floors with no finish as you would penetrating-seal-treated and oil-treated floors.

Not sure what kind of finish you have? To tell the difference in a pinch, just rub your finger across the floor. If no smudge appears, the floor is surface sealed. If you do create a smudge, the floor has been treated with a penetrating seal, oil finish, shellac, varnish or lacquer, and then waxed.

appears to be an interlocking manufactured flooring, floating on pad or glue down, based on edge beveling and spills will enter easily at these edges.
