Hardwood flooring is a durable, long lasting choice that San Diego homeowners love for its timelessness and versatility. However, hardwood can scratch, dent, and wear down overtime. The experts at Floor Coverings International La Jolla provide hardwood refinishing services to help combat these issues and bring life back into worn down floors. Read below to learn more about our process and the benefits of professional hardwood refinishing.
Benefits of Hardwood Refinishing
New hardwoods often come unfinished and are stained and finished after installation. Some hardwoods come prefinished in the factory, allowing for a quicker installation in the home. Either way, regular wear and tear can cause the finish to wear off, leaving your hardwood floors dull and exposed.
Refinishing old hardwoods brightens the look of your floors, and when paired with sanding, this process can remove old scratches and dents. Refinishing not only improves the look of your hardwoods, but it also protects them from further damage.
It’s a good idea to refinish your floors sooner rather than later so as to avoid excessive damage. This can prevent the need for sanding or reinstallation, saving you time and money.
Finally, it’s a good idea to refinish existing hardwoods if you plan on selling your home soon. It’s worth ripping up old carpet or vinyl and refinishing the hidden hardwood underneath, as this will boost your home’s resale value but won’t cost as much as installing brand new hardwood!
Our Refinishing Process
Refinishing a hardwood floor is easy. For a complete refinish, our professionals will sand the floor, re-stain the hardwood, and apply a protective finish. Sanding allows for the removal of stains, water damage, or scratches in the wood, while re-staining creates a fresh, uniform appearance.
For floors that are worn but not damaged, we’ll do a simple screening, where instead of sanding we only take off the top layer of finish and reapply a new one. This produces a fresh, shiny look and helps to protect your hardwood floors for the years to come.
We generally recommend having your hardwood floors refinished professionally, especially in the case that they need to be sanded, because this can be a tedious and difficult process. Fumes from the finish can be dangerous, and our professionals will be able to refinish your floors quickly and easily so your routine won’t be interrupted.
