Floorboards are a popular flooring choice. After all, they are timeless and classic.
There are a lot of benefits to having hardwood floors in your home. Hardwood flooring is fairly easy to clean and care for. In addition, they are very durable, and can remain in excellent condition for a very long time.
However as durable as timber floorboards are, they will inevitably begin to look scratched, worn and faded over time. Floor sanding or polishing will improve the look and quality and remove dents or scratches. Your home will feel cleaner and brighter as light will reflect more favourably on the newly polished floorboards.
If you have hardwood floors in your property, you may not have to polish them more than once every few years. However, if they’re looking worn, stained, uneven, or just very old and tired, you may want to do it sooner.
A complete refinishing job including sanding, polishing and waxing can transform your property as completely as a fresh coat of paint can for walls. The best part is the cost will most likely be a third of the price of a new floor.
The process involves:
This is the process of removing the top surfaces of a wooden floor by sanding with abrasive materials. Almost all wooden floor types can be sanded including timber, cork, particleboard, and parquet.
Floor sanding usually involves three stages:
3. Coating with a protective sealant
Polishing revives hardwood floors by filling its surface scratches and making it look fresh and glossy. Even if the floor already looks good, it is advised to polish hardwood floors frequently. Polishing a floor creates a protective layer on its surface and thus extends its life. On the other hand, if your floor is rather old or it is looking weary and teary, then a complete refinishing job (sanding, polishing and waxing) will provide better results.
Floor waxing involves using wax to polish and finish hard floors. This process results in an increase in the hardness and resistance against scuff marks on flooring, giving it an added shine and longevity. It is an ideal method of floor preservation. Waxing creates a non-slip surface and adds an attractive shine. As long as you apply it correctly, and don’t mind topping up the wax once or twice a year, you can create a durable and beautiful looking surface.
Benefits of sanding, waxing and polishing your floors:
» Minimises allergies
» Allows for customisation in timber colouring
» Increases home value
» Makes your floor look brand new
» Requires less cleaning (as dirt will not be trapped in the texture of the wood)
