High foot traffic can cause wear and tear on the wood surface, leaving behind unsightly scratches and gouges. This is caused by everything from the dirt being grinded onto the floor under people’s feet, to the kind of footwear that they use. The soiling under the feet acts like sand paper, abrading the surface. When it comes to shoes, some cause scuffs, others like rubber soles leave behind marks. Even heels damage the surface. Did you know that a person weighing just 125 pounds exerts up to 8000 pounds of pressure on the floor? With the huge numbers of people trooping in and out of your establishment, the risk of the installation getting damaged increases exponentially. A worn out floor lacks sheen and evenness in colour. Your once source of pride and joy becomes dull and dilapidated, bringing down the ambience of the interior space. With high traffic comes increased risk of food and drink spills, as people snack around the premises. You don’t want the substances seeping into the internal layers of the wood, permanently changing its colouration. There is also solar radiation to contend with, which causes the wood to fade. Protect your installation with the Junckers Pro Tech Floor Lacquer.
