Questions about Bona Traffic over a new floating cork floor
I'm going to be installing a floating cork floor in my basement later this week over Delta FL underlayment. I'm leaning towards adding a coat or two of Bona Traffic for the added durability and to seal the seams. I'm assuming it would be easier to do the coat of traffic before I install the baseboards. True?
What should be the process for prepping the new floor to take the Traffic? Specific grit to use? Should I rent a specific machine to do this, or can it be done easily by hand? I'm doing about 800 sq ft between three rooms.
How long after applying the Traffic can I cover up the floor with red rosin paper? I'm going to spray a final coat of paint on my trim after it's installed, so I need to mask the floor.
Any flooring pros around here with some experience? I didn't think this was a very specialized question.
Also, what do you guys do with floating floors around door casings? Most manufacturers want ~3/8" expansion gap all the way around, but my door casings have a profile that ranges from ~3/16"-9/16" thick. The floor would look pretty bad if didn't go underneath the door casings all the way.
