Due to everyday wear and tear, your wood floors will loose their original luster. The floors may acquire small scratches, dents, or stains. Instead of ripping out the floors and installing new ones, you can refnish them. Refinishing means sanding the floor to remove the top layer. This will remove small imperfections and allow your floors to look like new. Flooring Store & Design Center is pleased to offer San Diego Hardwood Floor Refinishing Services.

Can I Refinish Wood Floors Myself?

In theory, yes. If you are a confident DIY’er who is comfortable with heavy machinery and manual labor then refinishing hardwood floors is a worthy weekend project. Hardware stores like Home Depot have floor sanders available for rent.

If the floors are waxed, the wax needs to be removed before sanding. Seal off doorways with plastic sheets to minimize the spread of the sawdust. Wear a mask and goggles while sanding because it will get very dusty. Start with a 40 grit sandpaper, follow with 60 grit, and finish off with 100-grit. Be aware that the drum sander is heavy and it will gouge the floor if you are not careful. You may need to rent an edger to sand the perimeter of the room in places where the drum sander cannot reach.  After sanding, you can stain your wood floors (optional) and then apply a few layers of protective finish.

Depending on the thickness and quality of the wood floors, you can refinish wood floors about 5 times before they become too fragile to withstand any more sanding. If stripping, sanding, staining, and refinishing sounds too involved, then call the pros at Flooring Store & Design Center.
