Hardwood flooring not only looks good but goes with almost any environment, is easy to clean and generally creates a sense of luxury in a home. Hardwood floors can be sanded over and over, and depending on the thickness of the floor, the process can be repeated up to around 10 times.
So, without further ado, let’s look at 5 benefits of having your floor sanded.
1. Keeps your floor looking beautiful
Regardless of how old and dilapidated a floor is, sanding can transform a floor and make it look like new again. Hardwood flooring makes a home feel warm and cosy, and with sanding removing years of unsightly wear and tear, the visual improvement creates a stylish and welcoming entrance for you and your guests.
2. Increases the lifespan of your floor
Although hardwood flooring can be one of the most expensive flooring options for your home, sanding significantly improves its longevity. There have even been hardwood floors which have managed to survive for up to 300 years and counting!
3. Helps remove accumulated dust and stains
After your floor is sanded, you’ll be left with a smooth floor surface without the dents and scratches that normally attract dust and dirt to build up. Now all you’ll need is a quick mop and sweep now and again to keep your floor looking clean and tidy!
4. Creates a safer environment
Floors which haven’t been sanded for a while can develop cracks and splinters, which can be a hazard for children, pets and your family. Sanding greatly decreases the chance of these developing, creating a safe environment without the risk of harming you and your loved ones.
First impressions are everything when you’re trying to sell your property, and a beautifully sanded hardwood floor is sure to stir prospective buyers when they enter a room. With dirt, dust, scratches and stains now no longer visible, floor sanding will automatically add value to your property.
Hiring professional floor sanding specialists
Some people decide to sand their own floors, but there are several reasons you should consider hiring experienced sanders to make your floors look shiny and new.
Firstly, DIY sanding will take time and effort, especially if you’re a beginner. Professional sanders have years of experience and are already equipped with the best tools for the job.
A common reason people choose to sand floors themselves is to save money. However, it’s important to factor in the costs of hiring the tools and buying the necessary products.
And when considering the value of your own time, cost-saving is often minimal.
