It may be time to consider refinishing your hardwood floor if a thorough cleaning no longer restores the shine.
Deep scratches that cut through the floor’s protective coating, stubborn stains, warping, or areas where the protective coating has worn away, exposing wood fibers are all signs that you may need to refinish.
A 3/4 inch thick tongue-and-groove solid hardwood floor can be refinished about ten times during its useful life. Engineered hardwood flooring can also be refinished because of its multi-ply construction. Still, the contractor must be very skilled because there isn’t much natural hardwood on an engineered hardwood floor.
The frequency with which hardwood floors are refinished is determined by daily wear and tear and the species’ hardness rating.
Refinishing hardwood floors is a time-consuming process, which typically takes a professional Mays Landing NJ 08330 like Extreme Floor Care two to three days, depending on the floor size.
