Hardwood Floor Sanding and Refinishing
We all know that hardwood floors can last a lifetime. However, that lifetime of beauty and enjoyment doesn’t come without a little bit of work. Daily cleaning and polishing floors every few months are excellent ways to keep floors looking fresh, but there will eventually be a need to refinish your hardwood floors.
Refinishing wood floors is a great way to extend the life of your flooring and is cheaper and more environmentally safe than a full replacement. If you’re tired of the current look of your floors and want an update, you can refinish your floors to get an entirely new look with much less effort and inconvenience to you.
What is floor refinishing?
Refinishing hardwood floors is like giving your floor a reset. The topmost layer of a hardwood plank is the finish. This finish is a defensive barrier that protects the actual wood from damage. When you refinish a wood floor, you are completely removing your floor’s finish and putting down a new layer of finish. During the sanding process, damage like minor scratches and dents can be removed as well.
How do I know if my floors should be refinished?
If your floors have the following issues, it’s a good time to consider refinishing your hardwood floors.
Major scratches, dents or gouges;
Fading and discoloration from the sun;
Impossible to remove stains.
Refinishing floors for a new look
Refinishing floors is an excellent option for changing the color of your floors. While most refinishing jobs simply remove and replace a floor’s existing finish, refinishing can also remove a floor’s existing stain to capture the look of the original hardwood floor. Once a floor’s stain is removed, you can refinish your floors using a variety of different types of products, depending on your preference of color, sheen and even feel.
