The longevity of your wood surface finish is dependent on several factors including floor traffic, pets, and your practice of maintenance. As far as protection from wear, you can expect many years of protection and durability. Keep in mind that surface scratches are part of normal wear on your floor and cabinet finish. These can start becoming noticeable in as little as two years. If surface scratches are a concern, we suggest our N-Hance Clean and Recoat process. Remember, the better you protect your wood surfaces from damage, the longer your finish will stay beautiful.
