Anyone Tried Mr. Wood Varnish?

Recommended Posts

With my headache with my current parquet floor, i manage to search and come across Mr. Wood Varnish Ads from the Web.

Feedback was, parquet could be restore with minimum dust and fast with their huge machine.

Im very concern about the dust generated and completing the work fast as i have 2 very younf children at home.

Anyone tried their service, any feeback?

Price?

minimum dust?

Fast with the restoration?

Thanks in advance for the advice...

I have PM you.

Just to share. That I have stayed in same house when it was polished and vanished. It was not a pleasant experience.

Though we slept in another room during renovation. I would not do it again. The smell was bad and I did not have a good night sleep.

My kids really dislike the smell of the vanish. And the smell takes time to disappear.

If possible, send the kids to your mum or MIL place to sleep. It is better for their health and well being.

all the best to your Reno. :yamseng:

thanks SUYUN,

was thinking of going off with the kids for a short 5 days holiday, thus leaving contractors to do up the house...

By the way, how many rooms did you revarnish, how long it takes to complete the job and lastly how long it takes for the smelll to go away?

Thanks for the PM?

it only takes 1 day to complete. Basically its a like a huge vacuum cleaner. It grind and suck the dust at the same time. after that, varnish it like its brand new parquet. U can walk inside the house the following day. It is that simple.

BUT.... the following is what the contractor DON'T tell u, esp those who are staying inside the house.

The smell is unbearable. It even irritates my eyes to tears... that i have to quickly run out of the house to breath and to "relax" my eye. its like cutting onions.

U can't open the window during the first day. Any dust that fly inside the house and makes the floor stuck with the dust as its still 'wet'.

So u can only ventilate the room the following day. But bcas u are overseas, no one will ventilate the room for u.

Hi Thanks for the advice,

Do you mean they complete sanding/ revanish the whole unit for you within a day? or a room a day?

Yes i will be away for 5 days, but my mother who lives a short distance away can come over to help me ventilate the room for me. BTW hows the charges like???

Tell your contractor to use water based solvent to varnish once sand down which costs more but with no odour. It is really good
