Gleaming hardwood floors are every homeowner’s dream. The question is, what do your hardwood floors really look like? If you want to make sparkling floors your reality, we can help.
Consider a Deep Clean
Dull hardwood floors are, well, dull. But before you decide to invest money and time into re-sanding or refinishing, consider that maybe they just need a good cleaning! It’s amazing what a deep cleaning of wood floors can do to their look and shine. A soft broom, vacuum, and mop combo can go a long way for short money.
Too Many Scratches
A wood floor that is deeply scuffed up and scratched will most likely need re-sanding. But, before you opt for that route, consider pricing out replacing your floors with ones that have scratch-resistant properties. Wood floors from brands like Floorcraft are famous for their durability and family-friendly styles. All in all, replacing your hardwood floors with brand-new flooring could save you money down the line.
Beware the DIY
DIY projects are tempting money savers. But before you take on the task of refinishing your hardwood floors by yourself—that is, sanding your floors, patching, staining, and then top coating—make sure you’re aware of both the time investment and the need for expertise in these areas. Do you really want to both rent and operate an upright sander? As you may discover, sometimes cheaper is not always better! If you decide to go with the experts, make sure to research companies near you, browse reviews, and ask by word of mouth. Price-wise, expect that refinishing hardwood floors will cost you somewhere between $3.25 to $6.00 per square foot, all depending on the location of your home and the size of the room, or rooms, you’re refinishing.
What type of underlayment should you use? How many inches thick? How do you install it? And how do you avoid damaging your floors in the process?
