When it comes to flooring options, one of the most luxurious and beautiful is hardwood floors. Hardwood is a great choice and there are a variety of styles and colors that you can pick from. The hardwood is a real wood product that is made from different woods such as bamboo, oak and maple. They are manufactured to the size and shape needed and then colored with a stain and sealed to protect them. They are a great product that can last a long time as long as they are taken care of properly. This means having them cleaned professionally on a regular basis and extending the life of the floors by having them refinished.
American Hometown Services offers hardwood floor refinishing that can extend the life of your hardwood floors and keep them looking their best.
How Does Hardwood Floor Refinishing Work
This is a specialized procedure that should only be done by a professional that has training and experience in hardwood floor refinishing like the technicians at American Hometown Services. Our expert technicians will come to your house or office and inspect the floor and see what level of damage there is to determine the best plan of action. They will then start the sanding and stripping process. This is a messy but delicate process that allows the technicians to remove the original stain and sealant on the floors. They want to get down to the natural wood product which will also help to smooth out any imperfections or dents in the wood as well. After the wood has been stripped and sanded down it is prepped for step two which is color. The color is usually best if you use something that is similar to what was on the floors originally or something darker. You can choose a stain color that best fits the décor of your home or office and the technicians will apply it to the newly prepared hardwood. The color is then sealed in just like the original to protect the floor from future spills and water it may come in contact with.
Should I Replace My Hardwood Floors Or Refinish Them?
When you have hardwood floors installed you know that it is a costly product and replacing them prematurely is a bad idea. You can save a lot of money by refinishing them instead. The cost of refinishing is only a fraction of the cost of replacement and you will be amazed at the outcome. The floors will look nearly brand-new and can keep the need for replacement off quite a bit longer.
