- Will there be an odour when cleaning tile and grout?
- Does acrylic have an odour during application?
- How long will it take to have my floors coated with acrylic?
After tile and grout is cleaned, you may notice a faint scent. The amount of time it takes for the odour to dissipate is usually within an hour but varies based on air circulation, heat and humidity
Acrylic does have an odour during application, but it is generally mild and usually dissipates within a short period of time.
Preparation will depend on the condition of the existing floor, current number of coats, repairs required, etc. When applying an acrylic finish, stripping of the old finish is usually necessary. When that’s the case, finish removal plus the application of 3 coats of finish requires 1 hour for every 150 square feet of flooring. Generally, 3 coats of finish are required to achieve the desired effect. If a floor does not require stripping, it can generally be shower scrubbed which is a procedure used for preparing a floor for receiving a new layer of finish. Once that has taken place, a floor can be recoated at anywhere from 4,000 to 6,000 square feet per hour.
