Your wood floors take a lot of damage from the daily traffic in your house. Over the years, small scuffs and dings can add up and severely diminish the look of your hardwood floors. That’s why pros recommend refinishing your hardwood floors about once every ten years.
Refinishing your floors about once a decade is the only way to extend the life of your hardwood floors; it makes them look like new, enhances the appearance of your entire house, and protects against further damage.
You may be asking yourself, “Is it really worth it to refinish my floors?”
The short answer is: yes, it is worth it.
The long answer is that there are many benefits to refinishing your hardwood floors, like:
- The first benefit is that it is easier than the alternative—totally replacing your hardwood floor. It is quicker and less expensive, yet still makes your floors look like new and protects them from future damage. A professional refinishing job can take as little as a day, minimizing disruption to you and your family’s lives.
- If you are looking to sell your home, refinishing is a great way to add value and attract buyers. Homes with refinished floors are more likely to sell because they are more attractive and increase the quality of your home.
- Refinishing your floors will reduce maintenance cost and effort. Because damage like scratches and water damage will be gone, cleaning and maintaining your floors will be a breeze. You won’t need to clean them as often or as intensely, because they will look like new. Refinished floors also are less likely to harbor pests like termites!
- Safety is a big benefit to refinishing your floors. If your floors are old and damaged, the likelihood of getting splinters–or worse–is increased. When you refinish your floors, a new protective coat is put on, reducing the possibilities of injuries from splintered wood.
