After 20 years, most hardwood floors start showing their age through scratches, dullness, and discoloring. Fortunately, your hardwood floor can be sanded six to eight times during its lifetime. So, unless you live in a super old house or a previous resident wreaked havoc on the floor, chances are good that your wood floors can be brought back to life. Restore the wood’s original appearance and shine, change its color or finish, or blend it with newly added wood. Do not, we repeat, do not hire yourself for this project! When hiring a Humble professional wood refinishing company it is important to remember you can either choose someone who specializes in finishing or hire a hardwood floor installer, as most of them do refinishing, too.
While many of us know people who have sanded their own floors, professional floor refinishers strongly caution against this. Let’s face it, by the time you have acquired all the tools you need and invested the time, you are not going to save a lot of money. In the end, you are just going to screw it up and end up paying more money than originally planned. You can refinish floors anytime. However, if you are planning on storing furniture outside while the work is being done, you will obviously want to avoid poor weather conditions. If only a certain area of the floor looks bad, just do a light sanding in that section, rather than doing the whole floor. Call us today for a free estimate and get your floor shining again.
