Having buffed and recoated hardwood floors can make a world of difference in the appearance of your home. Not only does buffing help to remove scuffs and scratches, but sealing your floors with a protective coating can also help protect them from dirt and damage over time. In this blog, we’ll discuss how buffing and recoating wood floors can be beneficial for both the look and longevity of your flooring.
When buffing hardwood floors, it’s important to use the right kind of buffer and buffing compound. The type of buffing compound you choose will depend on what finish is currently on your floor. For example, if your floor has an oil-based finish, you’ll want to use a buffing compound that is specifically designed for oil-based finishes. Once the buffing process is complete, make sure to vacuum or sweep up any dust created by the buffing process.
After buffing your hardwood floors, you may want to consider recoating them with a protective coating such as polyurethane or varnish. This will help protect your floors from dirt and damage over time and can also give them a glossy finish, making them look brand new. When recoating your floors, make sure to use a brush or roller specifically designed for the type of coating you’re using. This will ensure that the product is evenly applied and that it adheres properly to the wood.
Overall buffing and recoating hardwood floors can be an easy and cost-effective way to upgrade the look of your home while preserving its condition for many years to come. Be sure to use the right buffing compound and coating for maximum protection and longevity.
