Scrub & recoating hardwood floors
The Floor Store recommends scrubbing and recoating your hardwood floors to maintain the protective wear layer every few years.
Protect Your Hardwood Floors
Today's hardwood flooring has been designed to withstand the wear, tear, and friction as a result of heavy foot traffic and daily activity. Technological advances and patents with finishes have also made possible the increased stain and wear-resistant characteristics. However, at times, hardwood floors may require screening or re-finishing. If left unchecked, eventually, bare wood will become exposed and made vulnerable to moisture, stains, and premature wear.
Every few years, we recommend scrubbing and recoating hardwood floors to maintain the protective wear layer. Scrubbing involves removing the worn top layer as well as embedded dirt, scratches, and minor stains. Then, the bare floor is thoroughly cleaned, rinsed, and recoated with a new, protective layer.
The new finish not only restores the luster and beauty of the original floor but also provides a durable, protective wear layer that will prolong its life. Your floor is ready to walk on overnight.
