Re-finishing and sanding your hardwood floors is necessary in order to preserve their quality and beauty. Re-finishing is carried out solely as a way of enhancing the wood’s natural color and to give it protection it from the elements.

The best time to sand and re-finish a hardwood floor is when moving into a new house or apartment as the completely vacant dwelling presents the opportunity to take advantage of my Glitsa gold seal Swedish Varnish finish coatings an receive exceptional value as this will last into the thirty years range. A wooden floors re-finishing with other types of hardwood floor coatings water borne and polyurethane should last around ten years. However, high traffic rooms will need to be re-finished more frequently.

There are lots of finishing options once the wooden floor is sanded and burnished, The choices are to have a natural finish this is either a clear coat of something: a natural oil stain or water borne coating, a varnish, a sealer, polyurethane anything clear whether semi transparent or opaque still clear.

Staining the wooden floor a stain color. there are plenty of stain colors and I have three different staining application methods all of which are involving carefully wiping on and off the penetrating oil stain while on your hands and knees. Each method allows for a  more intense levels of penetration meaning putting more stain in the wood deeper by raising of the grains fibers...

Stain colors are from dark to light Sable black, ebony, coffee brown, cordovan, antique brown, spice brown, medium brown, fruitwood, nutmeg, golden, neutral, whisper grey. taupe. white. These stains can be combined to make other custom mixed colors

Choosing a sheen is the amount of reflection you desire. typically matte satin semi gloss and high gloss. Depending on which solvent or water borne paint category some sheens may seem at have a different appearance when compared to each other

Veteran flooring contractor Ken Moersch completed work on a floor using a competitor's finish only to find that the product failed to perform, leaving the surface coarse and grainy. So, after buffing down the previous finish, Ken turned to Glitsa Max.

*33 years of experience from AHF allhardwood floor's Ken MoerschBecause I work alone, I need a more forgiving finish that will help me achieve superior results even with difficult layouts. Glitsa Max rolled on really nicely with great coverage and saved the job. I don't ever stress about a coat anymore.

Before and after

AFTER the Hardwood floor is complete:

1.Do not use sheet vinyl or tile floor care products on wood floors. Self-polishing acrylic waxes cause wood to become slippery and appear dull quickly.

2.Use throw rugs both inside and outside doorways to help prevent grit, dirt and other debris from being tracked onto your wood floors. This will prevent scratching.

3.Do not wet-mop a wood floor. Standing water can dull the finish, damage the wood and leave a discoloring residue.

4.Wipe up spills immediately with a slightly dampened towel.

5.Do not wax a wood floor, avoid wax . If the floor dulls, try buffing instead or a wood floor cleaner.  Once you start to see wear on heavy traffic areas you need to add more coating to your maintenance free hardwood floor surface. Eventually there will come a time when the old floor has transformed with age and the old petinas are showing the floors age the best course of action is probably refinishing from scratch.

6.Put soft plastic or fabric-faced glides under the legs of furniture to prevent scuffing and scratching.

7.Avoid walking on your wood floors with cleats, sports shoes and high heels. A 125-pound woman walking in high heels has an impact of 2,000 pounds per square inch. An exposed heel nail can exert up to 8,000 pounds per square inch. This kind of impact can dent any floor surface.

8.When moving heavy furniture, do not slide it on wood flooring. It is best to pick up the furniture completely to protect the wood flooring.

9.For wood flooring in the kitchen, place an area rug in front of the kitchen sink.

10.Use a humidifier throughout the winter months to minimize gaps or cracks.
