Hardwood floors tend to take a beating over time. After all they are constantly being walked on, having furniture pushed across them and bearing the weight of exposure to the outdoor elements and everyday life. It’s only natural that they will begin to lose their original shine and beauty that was present when originally installed. It’s for this reason that proper maintenance and upkeep is essential to the longevity and enjoyment of your Hardwood floors.
Proper care for your hardwood floor varies depending on if you have installed solid, engineered or WPC Hardwood. Based on the layered design of engineered and WPC flooring, not all engineered hardwood can be sanded and refinished, and if so, very few times. On the other hand, solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished numerous times due to it’s construction.
How often you sand and refinish your floors depends on how much traffic they encounter, but you typically want to have them refinished at a minimum, every 3-5 years. Doing so will help remove and prevent scratches, hide dents and scuffs that contribute to the overall worn look of your floor.
Norman the Floorman’s expert service crews will come in and move all furniture that might attract dust including but not limited to couches, curtains, sofas and buffets. We will then take off all moldings and baseboards that prevent us from refinishing the entire surface area of your floor. Once that’s been done we cover all furnaces and vents that could possibly spread dust to the rest of your house.
After the prep work has been done our professionals carefully go over your floor with a dustless technology sander to smooth out your surface, then apply the finish with the selected color stain and then use a high speed buffer that polishes the top layer of your floors
