While some flooring trends constantly go in and out of fashion, one style has stood the test of time and proven itself to be a timeless classic – the bare wooden floorboard. Very often, houses are hiding fantastic looking floorboards under worn out carpets – and when this is the case, all you need to do is remove the offending carpet before having the wooden floor boards to their former glory. In addition to improving your property’s aesthetics, you’ll also enjoy easier cleaning and upkeep. Other benefits of floor sanding and varnishing include:
Better for Allergy Sufferers
The benefits don’t just stop at improved looks and cleaning compatibility – varnished or properly sealed wood floors are also much better for the health of allergy sufferers. Carpets can harbour dust and other allergens that can trigger asthma and wreak havoc on those who suffer from allergies. With a quick sweep with a broom, a polished wooden floor can be cleared of dust mites, pet hair, pollen and other nasty allergens, while a carpet will cling on to these annoying and unwanted guests until it’s thoroughly vacuumed or subjected to a costly steam clean.
Customisation to Suit Your Own Tastes
Another benefit of wood floors is the fact that it can be customised to suit your specific tastes. Perhaps you want the colour of your floor to match the dining room furniture you own, or maybe you want a colour that will brighten up the room. Once you’ve sanded your floorboards, there are a number of beautiful colours you can choose from when it comes to staining – and given the beautiful natural grains found in many types of wood, you’re sure to be blown away by the results. You can choose from pre-made colours or even mix your own to create a truly customised and original shade that you can call your own.
One way to really save money in the long run? Wood floor sanding treatments. Why? Because sanding your wood floors increases their lifespan. If your floor is showing minor signs of damage, then a sanding job will significantly slow the damaging process. Getting your floor professionally refinished with a sanding and sealing will also costs less than completely replacing an old hardwood floor. Neglecting damage to save money up front can actually end up costing you much more in the long run.
Increase the Value of Your Home
Whether you are selling your home or looking to buy a new one, a refinished wood floor will increases the home’s value. Not only does it make an impression on anyone who sees it, but also shows proper homeowner behavior for keeping up on maintenance. Potential buyers will love that you practice regular upkeep, especially on endeavors such as hardwood floor refinishing.
Decrease Risk of Pests
When you’re floor has cracks and holes in it, pests are known to exploit those imperfections for nesting. A refinished wood floor makes it virtually brand new. That means no cracks, holes, or splinters for sneaky little bugs to creep into. There’s nothing worse than an infestation in your home. No one wants bugs living in their floors.
