Hardwood floors are the earliest type of flooring, being preceded only by materials such stone and tile. Good Hardwood has proved extremely long lasting and resilient to damage; some houses over one hundred years old still have their hardwood floors in good workable order. Under indoor conditions, without moisture issues, hardwood timber can easily survive for generations, only slowly suffering from the surface wear of human traffic.
One great advantage of hardwood over other types of flooring is the capacity to be re-sanded. This Re-sanding allows the floors surface to literally look like new. Even more modern flooring material, even synthetic products, usually do not have this capacity for re-sanding. Laminate and engineered floors cannot be refinished because they only have a thin top surface layer. Only hardwood, and possibly some types of bamboo, can be renewed by re-sanding.
After hardwood floor sanding the new top surface may be stained a different colour, should the home owner wish to redecorate with a new colour scheme. The timber floor is then polished to a fine finish.
Hardwood floor sanding is obviously a major undertaking. Professional standards are essential; DIY operations are rarely acceptable; both the end result and the operation itself suffer without the professional approach.
Floor sanding is notorious for producing sawdust. Professional, modern techniques have virtually eliminated this issue, with the small amount of dust that is produced being easily handled. DIY approaches cannot contain this dust problem.
