DIY Tips For Refinishing Your Hardwood Floors

Hardwood Floor RefinishingHardwood floors add elegance and warmth to your home. Whether you have oak, birch, maple or cherry floors, hardwood floor refinishing is required to keep your floors looking as great as on the day they were first installed. Excess scratches and dents are common over time, especially in high-traffic rooms, but these can be reversed with refinishing.

Robar Flooring offers professional hardwood floor refinishing services that help you restore your floors to their original beauty. Instead of ripping out worn out floors and covering them with expensive floor coverings, restore them using these DIY refinishing tips. For a longer lasting finish and years of great looking floors, hire a professional to take care of your hardwood floor refinishing.

Tips For Hardwood Floor Refinishing:

  • Remove everything from the room and vacuum thoroughly, concentrating on crevices and cracks. Remove any nails that are sticking out of the wood and replace them.
  • Rent a floor sander. Hardwood floor sanding is key to removing the varnish and scratches on the surface of your floors. Use extreme caution while sanding your floors. Because these machines are industrial-grade, they are very heavy and work fast. It is easy to over-sand and ruin your hardwood floor if you are not careful.
  • Sand with a heavy-grit sandpaper. Vacuum up the entire floor after sanding the surface and then sand again using a lighter-grit sandpaper.
  • Stain the surface of the wood in your desired shade. It is critical you remove all dust from sanding before staining the wood.
  • Apply two to three even coats of polyurethane after your stain has dried. Wait three hours in between each coat before applying the next.

There are many options and possibilities when it comes to hardwood flooring installation. Few of the most common types include:

In condominiums or commercial properties where sub-floor consists of concrete, plywood is applied on top of the slab in order to allow for nailing of the floor. All glued down floors can be directly applied on top of the concrete.
