Floor Craft Hardwood Refinishing Restores Dull, Worn and Damaged Floors So They Look Like They Did When First Installed
Our hardwood refinishing specialists are skilled in the correct restoration methods for every type of hardwood flooring for far less cost than completely replacing your flooring. Hardwood floors have become so very popular because they are available in a wide array of styles that will complement or enhance any new or existing interior design plan. Nevertheless, no flooring material lasts forever, and hardwood flooring will eventually lose its original bright shine from heavy foot traffic, ladies stiletto heels, athletic shoe cleats, spills, direct sunlight and even relocating heavy furniture. All of these daily occurrences will wear down the finish sooner or later and cause it to lose its original shine. Floor Craft is the preferred choice for homeowners in our area when their hardwood floors need refinishing. Floor Craft offers affordable hardwood refinishing services to homeowners in Wilmot, New London, Andover, Sunapee, Bradford and other nearby New Hampshire areas.
Here’s why hardwood refinishing is needed
When new hardwood floors are first put in place, their wood is covered with a durable polyurethane coating that provides protection from spills, abrasive dirt, and wear from constant foot traffic. This polyurethane coating also contains some very small flakes of aluminum oxide which have been added to this surface coating to further increase its protection, durability as well as to minimize any damage from the UV rays contained in direct sunlight. This protective surface coating increases the luster of the flooring as well. Sand, dirt and other abrasive particles are carried inside your home on people’s shoes, or on pet’s feet. These gritty particles work just like sandpaper by slowly scraping off the protective polyurethane coating over the hardwood underneath it. Once the coating is gone, soil and water can soak down into the wood to cause swelling and discoloration. Moreover, the UV radiation contained in direct sunlight entering the room may actually bleach out the rich colors from a hardwood floor, making the floor appear lackluster.
Hardwood refinishing brings back luster and durability
Fortunately, the above doesn’t mean that you’ll have to remove your existing floor and install an expensive new one. Hardwood sanding and refinishing provided by Floor Craft professionals will affordably remove all the damage that took place over time, and give your hardwood floor its original beauty once more. The hardwood refinishing process is merely a matter of removing what’s left of the original polyurethane coating, and replacing it with a completely new one. Unless the hardwood itself has received serious damage, this is the solution, and it is a relatively easy fix for our experienced hardwood refinishers. This hardwood refinishing process will also extend the lifespan of your floor by many more years. Want to know more?
