    At the end of July, I had an extensive conference call with Brett Miller from NWFA and Jason Elquest from Black Hawk Floors in Arizona going over the agenda for this training event.
    When I was finished with our conference call I was totally impressed and very happy to have this event come to Philly Floor. The opportunity to see and do different techniques finishing floors and learn from trainers from all over the country is a fantastic opportunity. To do it hands on is an awesome opportunity for those who attend.

    At this event, Brett and Jason will show the use of certain chemical treatments to achieve very custom looks on the floor. One of the treatments they will be showing will be the use of vinegar and steel wool and applying this to the floor. I looking forward to seeing the effect this treatment provides on the floor.

    Here’s a link to the agenda for this training and registration information: As you can see it is very thorough and should be a great exchange of information and technique.

    I look forward to seeing a great group of Hardwood Professionals sharing their trade.
