Well-maintained hardwood flooring enhances the ambiance of any home interior, whether it’s a formal dining room in an elegant home or a rustic mountain cabin. Wooden floors can become dull, damaged, and warped for a number of reasons, however. Flooring in homes that include active children and pets often shows signs of wear and tear over the years, and those who have lived in the same place for a long time often don’t notice the cumulative effects of family life and heavy traffic on the surface of their floors. If that describes your situation, take a careful look at your floors in natural lighting in the near future to determine whether their visual appeal has decreased significantly with the passage of time. If so, don’t get discouraged — chances are excellent that your floor can regain its former glory with a bit of professional care and attention through hardwood floor refinishing.
Why Hardwood Floor Refinishing?
Besides damage from children and pets, hardwood flooring can fade due to UV exposure and become warped as a result of wet or damp conditions. Fortunately, the average hardwood floor can be sanded down and refinished several times throughout the course of its lifetime. Pro-Clean Tech can restore your beat up old flooring to its former beauty.
Perhaps the children have grown up and moved out, leaving you feeling that it’s time for a home remodel, or maybe you’re considering putting your home on the market and seeking a new adventure. Either way, having your hardwood floors refinished is an excellent investment in both the value of your home and your quality of life. Keep in mind, however, that floor refinishing is a job for the experts because amateur work often produces less than desirable results.
A New Life to Your Hardwood Floors
Most of the time, hardwood flooring can be given new life simply by removing the finish and applying a new one. After hardwood flooring is initially installed, a urethane base is applied to protect it from moisture, dirt, foot traffic and other potential hazards. This finish wears away with time, however, and must be replaced to protect the flooring as well as to restore its visual appeal.
