Is it time to give your wood flooring a fresh start? Has it been worn down due to the effects of everyday use? These range from foot traffic, pet’s claws that leave scratches, all through to the sun’s radiation that causes colour changes to the surface. Are there traffic lanes that have developed on the floor- especially on those frequently used areas? This is caused by the dirt particles that abrade the surface when people walk on them, to the dulling and straining effects caused by the kind of footwear used. Even those light toy cars that the children play with are a threat to the floor, since they can cause scratches during the drag races as they as pushed around. Is the floor dotted with stains that have set into the surface, taking away the glamour of the interior space? Food and drink spills, urine stains from your furry friend, all through to corrosive cleaning agents that damage the surface instead of tackling the dirt and grime- they call cause spots that ruin the appeal of the installation. Even regular cleaning itself causes wear, especially with the constant scrubbing of the surface. Nature also has a role to play. The sun’s radiation, specifically the ultraviolet and infrared rays, affect the surface finish and wood structure itself. While the finish may develop an amber tint, the wood can either darken or bleach- depending on the species that you have installed. There comes a time when you need a fresh new start- to get rid of the old and worn out coats and have a new finish applied to the surface. After all, you don’t want to be stuck with a dull and dilapidated surface. Hire professional floor sanding services to give your installation a new lease of life.
The state of the floor affects your quality of life. You don’t want to be coming home from work to be greeted by a dull and weary interior. Those elegant furniture sets and state-of-the-art electronics won’t be appealing against a backdrop of a worn out and stained floor. Even hosting guests becomes an issue, when you find yourself constantly being put on the defensive, wondering how the state of things reflects on your personality. Getting floor sanding and restoration services will enable you to bring back that lost natural look and feel to the interior space. A similar case applies to business premises, where you want your customers to value your brand, and trust the quality of the products and services that you have to offer. Getting them to make the purchase will be a tall order when they have a low perception of you because of the worn out floor and dingy décor. The floor sanding will give you a fresh start, getting to the bare wood and allowing you to apply the finish treatments that you desire to enhance your décor. There are different stains available for you to choose the colouration you want for your flooring, and the enhanced strength and durability from the varnishes used will protect the underlying wood, preserving its structural integrity. That way you enhance the life of your investment, and get to enjoy it all through.
