Even the best and sturdiest wood in the world needs a little love after several years. For wooden floors, it is in the form of refinishing. Wood Floor Refinishing Novi is an expert service company that does all types of refinishing work for homes and commercial spaces. If there’s anything experts learn from on hand experience, it’s the fact that maintenance is very important if you want to keep your floors as pristine looking as possible. If you’ve done your part and managed to have your floors last for a decade or two without too much discoloration, good job! However, you still need to consider paying for a finishing retouch. This is to add an extra layer of protection to the already thinned out finish.
Let us give you an insight on how restorations are done:
First, we clear out all the furniture. This is because some heavy objects can damage the bare wood after the sanding process is done. Ideally, it is best to take out all the furniture.
Second, we make damage repairs. This involves tightening loose boards, hammering down protruding nails, and the like.
Third, the sanding process. This takes most of the time. On average, it will take a day or two to remove all the outer layer of finishing on the wood. Experts will not stop until they make sure that the boards are all even and sanded out to the last layer of finish.
Fourth, another sanding step wherein we use an edger. This is a more precise tool to achieve the desired finish.
Fifth, all holes are filled in with a latex wood filler. This covers up scratches and holes to ensure the entire floor is leveled out.
Sixth and last step is to apply the finishing. Wood staining can also be done here.
Now that you have an idea of the entire process, you can now keep a watchful eye during your wood floor restoration project.
