Tips For Hardwood Floor Refinishing

If you have floor refinishing collierville that have aged or are in need of a finish, you may want to consider refinishing them. Refinishing allows you to maintain the look and feel of your floor. It also helps protect it from damage and wear and tear. You can get this done yourself or you can hire a professional to do it for you. There are two main types of finishes, a stain and a varnish, and both can provide excellent protection. Choosing the right type of finish for your floor is crucial.

When you are refinishing your wood floors, you will need to take several steps. First, you will need to sand your floors. Sanding the wood helps preserve its natural grain and gives it a smoother finish. To sand, you will need a large drum sander and safety equipment. The next step is to clean the area thoroughly. After cleaning, you will need to remove furniture and rugs. Use a damp cloth and mineral spirits to clean off any dust.

After you have cleaned the area, you will need to apply a base coat. This should be applied to the entire floor. Once this coat is dry, you can apply a second coat. In order to apply the second coat, you will need to use a synthetic floor finishing applicator.

Next, you will need to apply a sealant. The sealer you choose can be either oil or water based. Choose one that has low VOCs. Wait about 24 hours before you walk on your floors. They should be completely dry before you move furniture back into the room.

During refinishing, you should keep your room airy and ventilated. If there are pets or children in the home, you will need to make sure to keep them away from your work area. Pets can easily cause damage to your flooring. For your peace of mind, consider hiring a professional to do the job for you.

If you decide to go with a stain, you will need to mix the color well. Make sure that you apply the stains evenly across the floor. Also, be sure to wait for the stains to dry before you place anything on them.

Finally, you will need to apply a top coat. After you apply the second coat, you will need to allow it to dry for about 24 hours. Allowing more time to dry will prevent problem areas in your floors.

Using a brush with a fine tip, you should brush the edges of the wood flooring. This will help the stain to adhere to the wood better. If the stain has not adhered to the floor properly, you can re-stain the floor.

If you are refinishing the floor for the first time, you will need to allow the finish to dry for 24 hours before you move furniture back into the room. Keep your room airy by opening windows and doorways, and by letting in fresh air.
