After a period of use, the surface of your wooden floor has signs of being old, damaged… This is the phenomenon most often happens, especially with wooden floors.

The solution now is to repaint the wooden floor to give your house a new look.

Here is a quick and effective way to paint indoor and outdoor wooden floors in 6 simple steps that want to introduce to you.

DIY Paint The Wooden Floors

Step 1: Check and clean.

The first step is to check if your laminate floor is free of termites, mold, or cracks, or splits.

If there are damaged areas or wood comes out, replace the floorboard or repair them.

Then sand lightly with fine sandpaper. This is the step not to make the laminate floor smooth but to let the paint and primer stick to the surface.

Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dirt from the floor. Wipe with clean water if necessary.

Step 2: Primer

For the paint to adhere tightly, you should apply a layer of PU primer beforehand. You should not paint in extremely humid weather.

For high effectiveness, you should apply 2 primers to the wooden floor. Let them dry before applying a few coats of paint on top.

Step 3: Sand the floor surface

This is the stage it is needed, you can see the defects in the paint. This further helps the floor to become smoother when the last coat is applied.

After you finish sanding, use a clean cloth to wipe off any dirt. Do not use torn cloth or paper for this, because it will leave strands on the floor and damage the paint.

Step 4: PU coating on the last layer

It is recommended to use rollers to paint the laminate floor, this saves you time and has a smoother finish.

For the PU coating for laminate flooring it is recommended to use aerosol or sprayer.

It is recommended to apply 2 or more coats of paint, some coatings may require up to 3 coats. You should apply thin layers of paint, not too thick paint. The thin coating makes your laminate flooring look more glossy.

Step 5: Wait.

If you use primer, you will have 5 – 6 coats of paint on your laminate flooring. You should wait a day or so before walking on it.
