Here are some of the most common questions associated with refinishing.
Why do my floors need to be refinished?
Hardwood floors need to be refinished because the surface finish wears away over time. Without proper finish, your floor will be susceptible to permanent damage from spills and stains.
What exactly does refinishing entail?
To refinish your floors, the surface needs to be adequately sanded. Sanding removes any excess finish, and it also keeps the floor smooth by removing scratches and scruffs. After the floor is completely sanded, new finish is applied as if the floor is a new install.
How do I know if my floors need to be refinished?
We have a simple test that you can do at home. Place a drop of water on your hardwood floor’s surface. If the water beads on the surface, then refinishing is not yet necessary. But, if the water is absorbed into the floor’s surface, then refinishing is necessary. We do want to note that if the drop of water is absorbed immediately, then it’s important to have the floors refinished as soon as possible.
Can other floors, like laminate and vinyl, be refinished?
There are some ways to refinish or reseal laminate floors, but these aren’t nearly as effective as hardwood refinishing. Other hard surface floor types such as vinyl cannot be refinished at all.
Can I refinish my hardwood floors on my own?
While it is possible for the skilled DIYer to refinish his or her own hardwood floors, we strongly recommend relying on a professional. Each hardwood floor is unique, so refinishing is often a difficult process.
