Make Informed Choices for Renewing Your Hardwood Floors

Renewing hardwood floors is not always about sanding and staining them. Here are some aspects to consider while deciding how to give your hardwood floors the care and attention they deserve.

  • Deep Cleaning: If there is no damage to the floors and it is only dirt and dust that is making your floors look worn and lacklustre, a good deep cleaning should do the job. This involves:
    • Thorough sweeping of the floors with a soft bristle broom
    • Vacuuming to remove hard-to-reach dirt in the floorboards and corners
    • Mopping with a microfiber cloth and concentrated cleaner made for hardwood floors


For deep cleaning high traffic zones, you may want to hire a hardwood flooring professional near you as they use specialized scrubbing machines to remove the embedded dirt.

  • Refinishing: When your wooden floors have severe water damage, excessive sun exposure, aging wood, or a faulty substructure, you may have no option but to completely replace the flooring.

Consider refinishing your hardwood floors for these reasons:
    • Aesthetic improvements, such as change in the sheen, finish, or stain of the hardwood
    • Routine wear and tear that has led to scratches, blemishes, or stubborn stains on your wooden floors.
