Hardwood flooring may last a lifetime, as is common knowledge. But it takes some effort to achieve that life of beauty and pleasure. Although regular cleaning and polishing are great strategies to keep floors looking new, you will ultimately need to refinish your hardwood floors. Hardwood floor refinishing is an excellent technique to increase the lifespan of your flooring and is more affordable and ecologically friendly than a complete replacement. If you want to refresh the appearance of your floors but don’t want to put a lot of work or trouble into them, you may refinish them to give them a whole new appearance.
What is the refinishing of wood floors?
Hardwood floor repair is like giving your floor a fresh start. The finish is a hardwood plank’s uppermost layer. The protective layer provided by this treatment shields the real wood from harm. Performing a hardwood floor refinishing entails totally removing the previous finish and applying a fresh coat. Minor dents and scratches can also be eliminated during the sanding process.
How frequently can I have my flooring refinished?
A hardwood floor installation may need to be sanded 4-6 times over the course of its lifetime, depending on the thickness of the laminate floor installation and the expertise of the flooring specialist. The 4-6 refinishes are more than plenty for hardwood floor installations because they may be refinished every 7 to 10 years.
How can I determine whether my floors need to be refinished?
Consider performing hardwood floor refinishing if any of the following apply to your floors. For instance, stains that are difficult to remove, severe scratches, dents, gouges, or water damage. Your best choice for altering the color of your flooring is to refinish them. While the majority of refinishing projects just include removing and replacing an existing finish, refinishing can also involve removing an existing stain in order to replicate the appearance of the original hardwood floor. Depending on your preferred color, sheen, and even feel, you may refinish your floors using a variety of various types of materials once the stain has been removed.
When should my wood flooring be refinished?
The “optimal” time to refinish hardwood floors isn’t actually one at all. You may refinish your floors as long as the temperature in your home is constant (between 65 and 75 degrees preferably during the refinishing process and during the floor’s cure time). Illinois has significant humidity, so you might wish to postpone your trip till the weather is less humid. Since many people leave the house over the summer for lengthy periods of time, summer might be a wonderful time to refinish flooring.
