Refinishing Hardwood Floors vs. Replacing them
If your hardwood floor has seen better days, you’re probably trying to decide if you need to replace it, which can be a time-consuming and costly process. Hardwood floor refinishing is often the best answer to your woes if your floor just suffers from minor scratches, scuffs, and dull spots. Wood refinishing is a simple process compared to replacing, because it just involves sanding down the floor and refinishing it. You only need to replace your wood floors if they’re beyond repair.
What Sets Us Apart
Traditional hardwood floor sanding is an extremely dusty process. The dust storm in your home, lingering dust in your air ducts, and the headache of cleanup can make it feel like it will never end. Fortunately, there is a cleaner, healthier, and faster process with the Atomic Dust Containment System from Bona. We virtually eliminate the airborne dust generated from the sanding process.
Dust Containment System
The traditional floor sander creates a dust cloud. The dust from this process isn’t just messy—it’s a health hazard. The Bona Atomic Dust Containment System virtually eliminates airborne dust. We’ve experienced increased customer satisfaction and higher quality results due to the Bona Atomic Dust Containment System. It eliminates airborne dust that might settle back down into the finish or drift into other parts of the home or business. It preserves indoor air quality and even eliminates the need to hang plastic.
Tips to Preserve the Beauty of Your Hardwood Floor
After a professional refinishing job, many customers want to know how to preserve the long life and beautiful look of their hardwood floors. You will be relieved to know that protecting your wood floors isn’t too complicated or involved. Taking small, simple steps can significantly extend the life and beauty of your floors.
- Clean, clean, clean: While it’s pretty much a given, keeping your hardwood floors clean prevents small scratches, wearing down of the finish, and unwanted stains. Going over them often, as well as immediately cleaning any food or drink spills, can go a long way to keeping them beautiful. Asking guests and family members to take shoes off at the door will also keep floors clean and prevent grit from grinding against the finish
- Prevent scratching: Using pads under furniture legs will help prevent scratches on your pretty floors. If you have animals, trimming and filing their nails down can prevent them from leaving tiny scratches when they get excited or run around.
- Use rugs: Area rugs both small and large can be a useful layer of protection for your hardwood floors. Placing an area rug in the places that get the most traffic in your home will keep your floor away from dirty feet, dropped objects, and other accidents. Using smaller rugs under your furniture is also a great alternative to using pads.
- Light cleaners: While cleaning is essential, using the right type of cleaner is important, too. Oily, greasy cleaners leave residue on your floors, sometimes eating away at the finish long after you’ve stopped cleaning.
