Can My Hardwood Floor Be Sanded and Refinished?
Sanding Hardwood floors is one great thing you can do with having hardwood flooring installed in your home. Can my hardwood floors be sanded and refinished? This is a question usually asked by hardwood flooring owners, when they find that its time to address some imperfections on their wood flooring. is that this flooring material can be re-surfaced and refinished. This allows you to bring back to life and the beauty of your wood flooring after normal wear and tear or damages that can happen over time.
But how can you determine whether your hardwood flooring can still be sanded or not? The answer lies in how much wear layer is left on your wood flooring. The thicker the wear layer, the better probability that the floor can still be re-surfaced.
Sanding hardwood floors is the process of taking out scratches, dents, and other imperfections in the wood flooring using different levels of coarse sandpapers and a sanding machine. When done professionally, sanding hardwood floors usually takes away about 1 millimeter of your wood flooring surface. So depending on the thickness of the hardwood flooring wear layer, it can be sanded and refinished.
Sanding and refinishing solid hardwood floors is the most ideal. It can be sanded around six to seven times in the course of the wood flooring’s lifetime. A good solid hardwood floor’s wear layer usually starts at 6mm thick. Do take note that sanding the wood flooring’s surface would smoothen and even out the top layer. Distressed hardwood floors usually require hand sanding which is more labor-intensive and time-consuming therefore more costly compared to regular sanding and refinishing work.
