Wood floor refinishing

Edit Article |

Posted: Feb 26, 2011 |



]]>

Over time, wooden floors in any room of the home need a little attention and fixing up.   Wood floor refinishing is a very popular method of caring for your wooden floor regardless of whether it is for your bedroom, living room, office, basement, patio or any other area.  The process of wood floor refinishing leaves your wooden floors shining, looking like brand new and helps give your floor the protective coat that it needs.

There are many factors to take into consideration when thinking about wood floor refinishing for your home.  Some people are sensitive to the fumes that wood floor refinishing products often have, so if you easily get nauseous or light headed from strong odors; you may want to think twice if you are going to be the one laying down the refinishing paint.  In this case, it might be a good idea to call a hardwood restoration company to do the job for you.  In either case, ventilation following the wood floor refinishing process is incredibly both for your home and your family members.  Even if the chemicals in your hardwood refinishing paint are non toxic, it is still not healthy to have excessive exposure to these fumes.  A good idea is to refinish your floors early in the day, and allow the smell to fade away throughout the day.  Leave your windows open if you can, and try to stay out of the house while the refinishing paint is drying.

When someone decides to refinish their wood floors, it is important to know what supplies you will need.  Make no mistake; wood floor refinishing is not an easy process.  If you decide that you want to spend the day to refinish your floors however, you will most certainly need a sander of some sort.  If the area you will be refinishing is relatively small area, say less than 50 square feet, you can sand by hand.  Otherwise you will want to get an electric sander.  Orbital electric sanders are best for this type of job, and can be purchased at any hardware store for as little as .  In addition to a sander/sandpaper, you will also need wood filler to fill in all the holes and dents in the wood.  This part comes before the sanding, and wood filler can also be purchased at a hardware store, for under .

If you decide to go with a hardwood restoration company, it is import ant to make sure that you are getting some sort of satisfaction guarantee for the job they will be doing.  Your floors are an important investment and obviously if you are considering having them refinished, you know that how important good looking wooden floors are.  Make sure that whatever company you end up choosing gives you an affordable price (it never hurts to compare a few companies’ prices), and that they give you a 100% satisfaction guarantee on the product in writing.  In the even that they do not complete the job to your liking, you will want to be able to get your money back.
