Hardwood floor refinishing is practical and economical and has a dramatic effect in home improvement
Barton Creek TX --- The Barton Creek Handyman website was recently updated with a page about restoring hardwood floors. The trend for installing or refinishing hardwood floors has grown with retail sales increasing annually. Hardwood floors have a dramatic effect on a home and they’re one of the most popular home renovations for increasing value.
Restoring hardwood floors is labor intensive, including preparation, sanding and finishing. The handyman suggests completely emptying the room first and assessing the amount of damage. Before sanding hardwood floors the boards must be secure and not warped. Hammer in any protruding nails with a nail setter to embed them so they do not tear the sandpaper.
Trim molding must be removed before sanding. Start with a heavy grit and work down to a finer grit sanding slowly, with the grain, keeping the machine moving constantly.
The final step is the most rewarding for the handyman. After sweeping and damp mopping the floor to remove all dust, apply a stain and clear polyurethane finish according to manufacturer’s instructions to bring out the beauty and protect the wood.
