Previously lacquered floors will need to periodically be re-finished. If the floor has been maintained using wax-based polish or similar, the floor will have to be sanded back to bare wood prior to a new lacquer application. If just cleaners or freshening products were used it is possible to apply further coats of finish just with a light sanding. The floor must be cleaned and lightly abraded.
