If you are fixing up your home to sell it, do not overlook the natural beauty and selling capabilities of hardwood floors. Even if the floors in your home have obvious signs of wear and tear, hardwood floor refinishing or refinishing your hardwood stairs can increase your home’s appeal and value when it comes time to put it up for sale.
Robar Flooring offers professional services for refinishing hardwood stairs and floors. Because refinishing floors is a big task, hiring a professional can save you the hassle, time and money and leave you with beautifully refinished floors that look brand new.
Hardwood floors do look better with age, but eventually they will need refinishing to reflect their natural beauty. The best way to tell if your floors need refinishing is to get down on your knees and inspect the boards. If you notice scratches, dings and discolorations, it might be time to refinish them. Another test is to pour a tablespoon of clean water onto the floor. If you notice droplets forming, your finish is fine. If, however, the droplets soak slowly or penetrate quickly into the wood, it is time to refinish.
