What you can expect from your wood floor refinishing service
Unfortunately, wood coating doesn't last forever. When it gets too worn out, your floor will not only lose its shine and vibrance but also become prone to more damage. That's why having your wood floors refinished is essential to keeping them safe and beautiful longer.
If your floor has accumulated quite a few deep scratches, has discoloured patches, or you want to change its look to match your new decor, then refinishing is the way to go. A full refinishing service includes:
- Removing the existing finish and evening out dents or scratches;
- Cleaning and staining the wood;
- Applying several coats of the new finish.
This service is suitable for both hardwood and softwood floors, and is fantastic for any property, be it domestic or commercial.
If your floors are not heavily damaged or you want to revitalise them, you can opt for hardwood floor recoating. This includes lightly sanding the floor and applying the coating without removing the old finish. Whether your floor can be recoated depends on its condition. An expert will conduct a survey and advise you on this before the service.
You can also choose floor re-oiling to refresh its appearance. Oil-based coating soaks into the wood, giving the wood some protection. While oiled floors require more upkeep, they are popular due to their natural appearance. Re-oiling wood floors eliminates the need to sand, too - a simple buffing will do.
Lime-washing is a non-permanent solution that can be used to colour and brighten a floor. Any existing finish will need to be removed, then the lime-wash will be applied. Finally, the floor will be sealed with the proper finish.
