Hardwood Floor Refinishing
There are many advantages to having hardwood floors in your home. From their beautiful appearance to being relatively easy to clean, the hardwood floor is a tradition in the American home. However, despite all the advantages that they offer, wood does age over time and will need to have some professional maintenance at some point.
This is especially true if the floors have been subject to extended periods of sunlight or perhaps being inundated with water, then you will need to consider having them refinished. While many people choose to have new flooring installed, you can actually save a considerable amount simply by having them refinished.
Why Have your Hardwood Floors Refinished?
There are a number of reasons why you should consider having your hardwood floors refinished. This is especially true if you are actually considering replacing your flooring due to its appearance.
Smooth Out the Floor: The refinishing process strips away the old finish, sands the floor evenly in most cases and then applies a new finish so that your floor will look new again. In fact, your floor is new in the sense that a layer which was previously hidden is now on top and properly finished so that it is protected.
Less Expensive than Replacement Floors: Admittedly, it can be real tempting to replace your hardwood flooring altogether especially if you have had it in your home for a long time. However, a new floor can be quite expensive and unless your old hardwood floor is beyond any type of repair, a refinishing effort can not only leave it looking like new, it will extend its life considerably.
Restore the Integrity: All the various nicks, cracks and dents that your old flooring had will be replaced by a smoother surface that has been properly refinished so that it can better withstand all the use it will get over the years. You’ll find that a refinished floor will last just as long, if not longer than your old finish especially if you follow a few maintenance tips that will help keep your wooden floors looking like new.
Your hardwood floor refinishing can last even longer if you follow these tips;
- Keep Curtains Closed as Often as Possible to Avoid Sunlight Damage
- Clean up Spills Immediately before they Settle In
- Do not Wear Hard Sole Shoes While Walking on the Floor
