Keep Your Floors In Top Quality
If your oak floors, maple floors or any hardwood floors are covered in scratches, you can sand them down to get the best out of your floors.
Getting The Best Out Of Your Hardwood Floors
However, sanding down the floors isn’t always necessary as there are other ways to keep your floors top quality.If the scratches don’t go all the way through the wooden planks, you can scuff-sand your floors with buffer and apply a thin fresh coat of finish to dry, and your done.This procedure is less expensive than sanding or replacing your floors and it is much more time efficient.By now you’re wondering, a buffer would cost a fortune. However this isn’t the case. You can certainly rent a buffer in the closest home improvement shop such as Rona’s, Home Depot, or Lowe’s. With such a low rental cost, you might as well rent a vacuum to suck up the dust.Using a buffer is easy with a little practice. Preview some YouTube videos to get expert advice. If you’re uncertain about the tool, do extra research and wear protective gloves and glasses just in case. Maneuver the device slowly with care, until you get a hang of it. In no time, you’ll be able to get your floors prefinished and ready for coating.
Once you place the finish coat on the hardwood floor, wait a few hours and apply a poly solution to coat the finish to strengthen the finish and make it water resistant.Oil based poly are less expensive, but you might need to place a few coats after 8 hours in order to get the maximum effect.Either way, a fresh coat every few hours will create floors that will shine and last for many years to come.For more tips, contact Chestnut Flooring today!
