Keep your hardwood floors shiny and strong
How do you go about determining whether or not hardwood refinishing is necessary? We at Valley Carpet One have a simple test to determine whether or not your hardwood floor needs to be refinished.
All you have to do is put a drop of water on your floor's surface and wait to see what happens. If that drop of water beads up at the surface, then your floor's finish is still strong and in good enough condition to protect the hardwood underneath. However, if after a few minutes that drop of water soaks into your floor, your floors will need to be refinished sometime in the near future. But, if that drop of water you put on your floor soaks in immediately, that tells you your floor is in desperate need of refinishing. And if you don't have your hardwood floors refinished soon, there could be irreversible damage.
If you've determined that it's time for some hardwood floor refinishing, don't panic. Contact us today and we'll take care of everything for you. We'll schedule a time that's convenient for one of our professionals to come and thoroughly inspect your floors to see if refinishing is the best option.
Once we decide that the floor needs to be refinished, then we will begin by sanding your floor's surface to make sure it's completely smooth and to help get rid of the scratches and any other type of wear and tear. After your floors have been sanded, we will thoroughly clean the surface, and then we'll add the new finish. The new finish will seal the wood and protect your floors from moisture and normal wear and tear.
