If you're not happy with the appearance of your hardwood flooring, don't go to the expense of replacing it. Instead, have a flooring contractor come out and refinish it for you. Refinishing your hardwood floor will give it a whole new look – at a fraction of the cost of replacement. If you're not sure your floor needs to be refinished, take a look at the list below. If you're dealing with any of the issues described there, you need to have your floor refinished.
You've Got Water Spots
When you have hardwood flooring, you need to wipe spills away quickly. Unfortunately, that's not always possible. If your hardwood floors have water spots, and you haven't been able to get rid of them, it's time to talk to your contractor about refinishing. Refinishing your floors will remove the water spots and restore the beautiful luster. A new application of sealant will help prevent future water spots.
You've Got Deep Scratches
Hardwood floors are durable, but they can still develop deep scratches and gouges. Things like scooting chairs across the floor, letting your dogs nails grow too long, or even carrying sand into the house on the bottom of your feet, can all cause scratches to develop in your floor. Unfortunately, significant damage needs professional attention. That's where the refinishing comes in to the picture. Refinishing will remove all the visible damage to your floors, including those deep scratches.
Your Floor Has Lost It's Shine
It's not uncommon for hardwood floors to lose their shine over time. If your floor no longer looks as lustrous as it once did, you need to have it refinished. During the refinishing process, the old stain and sealants will be removed, revealing the natural wood finish. Refinishing your floors will restore the shine and leave them looking brand new.
Your Old Color Isn't Appealing
If you've redecorated your home, and the color of your hardwood floor no longer goes with the décor, refinishing can help. You might not realize this, but your floor can be stained to a darker – or lighter – color during the refinishing process. You can get an entirely new look, just be refinishing your floor.
If you're not happy with the appearance of your hardwood floor, don't go to the trouble and expense of refinishing it. Instead, have a flooring contractor come out, such as from Kenton Carpet Care, and refinish your current floor. You'll get a whole new look for a fraction of the cost of a new floor.
