Sanding and refinishing your hardwood floors will keep them beautiful, clean and pristine for many years. This process is also one home improvement that will help increase the value of your home. Below are a few other reasons Flowers Flooring recommends sanding & finishing your hardwood floors:
Hardwood floors can become stained, warped, chipped or dull over time. Flowers Flooring can refinish your hardwood to restore it back to its original shine. Our estimators often get asked “Is it cheaper to sand and refinish my hardwood or replace it?” It’s almost always cheaper to refinish your existing floor than to replace it. When you replace a floor, you need to take into consideration the cost of new flooring as well as the tear out of the existing floor and the installation cost of a new floor.
An old, worn out solid hardwood floor can be completely transformed through a sand and finish process. You can even change the color of your floors by selecting a new DuraSeal® stain color. Remember, floors are a focal point of any room, so when your floors look better, the entire space looks better.
Refinishing your floors instantly increases your homes market value. Ask any real estate broker and they’ll tell you that prospective homebuyers love to see homes with beautifully sanded solid hardwood floors. Hardwood is timeless and new homebuyers get a sense of comfort knowing they can sand & refinish the floors again years down the line to make them look like new again. This is a big advantage when your property hits the market.
Sanding and refinishing a floor reduces the likelihood that floors will crack and splinter. This makes it safer for children, pets and other family members to walk across the floor bare foot without the risk of injury.
Finished hardwood floors collect little dust. What debris it does collect is easy to clean with a quick sweep of a vacuum and a damp microfiber mop such as the Shaw R2X Hard Surface Cleaner.
