Hardwood floors lose their lustre over time due to a cocktail of reasons. The glossy finish gets worn down by the everyday movement in home and commercial establishments. Dirt and grime pile up on the surface from the environment, while some is tracked in for the outside under your pet’s paws and peoples’ shoes. While underfoot, the particles get grinded against the surface, which is just like having bits of sandpaper attached to your shoes. When something heavy is dropped, it’s also likely to leave a dent. Sometimes it’s a furniture set that moves a couple of millimetres each time people take a sit. Some dents are not as noticeable as others, but they all have the same effect of damaging the finishing and leaving the underlying wood exposed to more damage. The cleaning itself- especially those cases when thorough scrubbing is needed to get rid of the stubborn stains and dirt spots, gradually wears down the finish. Using too much water, on the other hand, leads to moisture imbalances, and consequent water damage. In rooms like kitchens, there may even be burns. Some cases it’s a hot utensil that simply dropped and didn’t leave that much of a spot; in other instances it’s a log falling out of the fire place and making a huge mark that necessitates a complete refinishing. As your pets run and play around, their claws scratch the surface. The same case happens when heavy furniture and appliances are dragged across the surface, and when people have footwear such as heels on. When it’s time to restore your installation to its lost glory, call in the floor sanding experts to get you started.
