Beautify your home with hardwood floor refinishing & baseboards
As the years pass, hardwood floors can become scratched, dull, stained and worn down from the daily foot traffic in your home. Depending on just how much wear and tear your floor has sustained, and how much money you want to spend to bring back its original luster and longevity, you can decide which hardwood floor refinishing option is the best for you. The other factor you must consider is how long you want people working on the floors in your home, since each option requires a different amount of time to complete. These optional methods include:
- Sanding - The first option is traditional sanding. This method generally takes considerable time and can be quite dusty. Sanding your hardwood floors is the best solution if the floors urethane surface coating has been badly worn down, stained or damaged. To do this, all your furniture in the room must be removed to make sure the dust from the sanding process doesn’t remain after the job is completed. Not all floors require this amount of refinishing work, which is why there are other methods that can be employed. Dustless sanding is a recently developed technique that eliminates most of the dust resulting from the sanding process.
- Screening - There is also a hardwood floor refinishing process known as screening. This is a process that doesn’t remove any hardwood; instead, it takes off the top layer of polyurethane plastic coating. This method is only suitable when the finish on the hardwood floor is worn, dull or scratched. However, the wood underneath the polyurethane finish cannot be damaged or stained. Again, all furniture must be removed from the room before this process begins.
- Replacing the finish - Once the floors damaged surface finish has been sanded away and the dust removed, a new polyurethane coating is applied. We recommend putting a new coat down on the floors every two years or whenever the floor looks worn to ensure a beautiful look to the hardwood floors.
Even though this may seem simple enough, a lot of things can go amiss if you aren’t really familiar with the tools necessary to get this job completed properly. The hardwood floor refinishing specialists at Love Wood Flooring will get the project done for you correctly and quickly.
The lowest part of the room is actually the most important part. The baseboards are the lowest part of the interior walls, and their only purpose is to cover the floor joints.
Also referred to as skirting boards or mopboards, good baseboards will protect your floor from kicks, abrasions and scrapes. However, that’s not all these baseboards do; they also serve an aesthetic purpose, much like a great frame surrounding a fine oil painting. Therefore, it’s very important that your baseboards look as beautiful as the rest of your room.
If your room does not already include baseboards, or if the existing baseboards are just not ‘up to par’ with your beautiful new hardwood floor, Love Wood Flooring can help you choose and install suitable new baseboards at affordable prices.
