Why Hardwood Floor Sanding Is Important

You’ve probably heard that wood floors should be refinished as they age to preserve that shiny new look you love. But is hardwood floor sanding really that important? Or is this an expense you can spare?

At Elegant Floor Service, we find hardwood floor sanding to be critical if you want to maintain beautiful, scratch-free flooring. And if you already have some marks on your floors, you can also use this time to finally make those much-needed repairs and restore the color that once made your flooring pop.

Benefits of Sanding Hardwood Floors

Hardwood flooring can add a touch of luxury to any room, making the entire space feel newer and even adding depth to the design. But even the most durable wood floors—and they are known for their durability—need some extra attention as they age, and sanding is a critical component to proper maintenance.

Here’s how you can benefit from sanding hardwood floors:

  • If your floors need minor repairs or are worn out, sanding can take care of the damage. It can also be used to secure loose planks or nails.
  • If your floors have lost their original stain with age, you can re-stain them during this time and restore the color you love.
  • If your floors have lost their shine and look dull, a polish is applied that can enhance the appearance. Sanding makes your floors look newer and smoother.
  • If you want to preserve your flooring and protect it from future damage, we apply a sealant that can prepare your floors to withstand use.

It’s only natural that as your floors age, they’ll undergo some wear and tear. But that’s what hardwood floor sanding is for! Not only can the refinishing process eliminate the normal scratches and marks that form over time, but it can brighten up the room, making your floors look nearly as beautiful as they were when they were installed. What’s more, your floors tend to be more resistant to movement after they’ve been sanded and when your floors are completely even, it also becomes more difficult for dust to collect.
