Can I Sand And Refinish My Floor?
Most hardwood floors can be sanded and refinished once to three times throughout its lifetime. The amount of re-sanding or refinishing procedures that can be done depends on the thickness of the top layer of premium hardwood. This process entails removing the top layer of the finished hardwood through sanding and rebuilding a new smooth surface. This procedure can take about 2 days or longer, depending on the size of the space. While sanding and refinishing a floor may be costly and disruptive to the household, it is usually more cost-efficient than replacing it.
When Is It Time To Recoat Or Refinish My Floor?
When your floor begins to look worn and dull, this is a good sign it needs re-sanding or refinishing. Here is a quick test you can do to figure out the level of urgency for your floor treatment. Pour a couple of tablespoons of water onto the hardwood floor: if the water creates droplets, your floor is probably dirty or tarnished by wear and tear. Use a specialized product to clean it. If after a few minutes the water slowly soaks into your floor, it is partially worn and will need recoating or refinishing soon, but for now, just take a little extra care of it. On the other hand, if the water soaks right in, it’s time to recoat or re-sand and refinish your floors.
