GERS Flooring Is The Only Choice For Sanding And Polishing
Among flooring choices, natural wood floors are often preferred by homeowners for their ability to enhance any room. Homes with wood flooring seem more relaxing and welcoming, which is another reason they’re often preferred over tiling and other types of flooring. While they are easier to maintain than carpeting and even many types of tiling, wood flooring isn’t maintenance-free.
Over time, wood flooring tends to look dull and won’t look quite as appealing as it did when it was first installed. However, that’s not to say the look you fell in love with is lost forever. The flooring experts at GERS Flooring know how to restore that shine and the general “new floor” glow.
Sanding is Essential to Restoring Your Floor’s Quality
The first step in refinishing your wood flooring is to utilize the Hoboken Wood Floor Sanding services offered by GERS Flooring. Over time, the wood can be worn in high traffic areas, or in locations where heavy furniture is kept. Grooves, scratches, and just normal wear and tear can mar the wood and leave it looking lackluster. Sanding repairs these damages and strengthens the quality of the wood. It can also help to tighten the individual boards, so they won’t shift and move. The planks will fit more securely, improving the overall durability of the floor.
You’re probably going to want the floor given a fresh coat of stain or finish, as well. Before this can be done, the flooring needs to be smoothed, which can only be done through a quality sanding job. Once the sanding has been done, the floor is bare and ready to be refinished. Another benefit of this process is that you can also change the stain color, if you so desire. In the end, this means you can have an entirely new look for your wood flooring.
Additionally, sanding improves the effect natural light has, when it enters the room. With a worn and weary floor, the sun’s rays may be soaked up by the wood. However, after GERS Flooring technicians finish sanding the floor, the light will be reflected off of the surface, improving the quality of lighting in the room. That process will also work to increase the natural warmth in the room, reducing your need to use your heating system. You’ll use less energy, once your floor has been sanded and restored.
Complete the Process with a Fresh Polish
Whether you’ve just had a Hoboken Wood Floor Installation or you’ve had your floors for some time, a polish is often required. GERS Flooring offers polishing services that can enhance the benefits of you wood flooring and ensure they’ll last for many years.
Wood is one of nature’s most beautiful materials, but it’s also easily damaged. The porous quality of wood means it can be easily scratched, dented, worn, or damaged, but polishing adds strength to the surface of the wood. After your floors have been expertly polished, they’ll be more resistant to those dents and scratches.
If you suffer from allergies, having your floors polished by GERS Flooring can also help alleviate your symptoms. Dust particles will find it more difficult to accumulate on a polished floor, which means there will be less contaminants in the home to affect your sinuses. Conversely, if it has been awhile since your last floor polishing, the polish may be worn, making it easier for the wood to collect dust particles. If your allergy symptoms or asthma seem to have gotten worse, a new floor polishing may go a long way towards correcting the problem.
In much the same way, a floor polishing from GERS Flooring can make your floor cleaner and free of bacteria. The process of polishing cleans the wood and removes dirt and bacteria that may be difficult to remove with traditional cleaning methods. This is especially beneficial in homes with pets and small children, where they may be playing or crawling on the floor.
