How To Mop a Wood Floor

solid wood flooring No Comments »

Watch this video for a demonstration of “How To Mop a Wood Floor”. To complete the task, you will need:

A broom, or a vacuum cleaner with a floor attachment
A bucket of water
Some wood cleaner or dishwashing liquid

Get started with the first step: Make sure your floor is sealed. If it’s not, it’s probably waxed and shouldn’t be mopped. Check by rubbing a finger across it. If you don’t leave a smudge, the floor is probably sealed.

What is the average costs for refinishing hardwood floors?

hard wood floor refinishing 1 Comment »

Unfortunately, I do not have the square footage of the room, but its an average size med bedroom. I’m realizing that if finances permit, it may be best to refinish the wood floor prior to moving in furniture.

If you mean by hiring someone to redo them, try your local yellow pages. It varies from locale to locale. Be sure you get references before letting anyone start working on them.

However, if you want to redo them yourself, you would need to check the specifications of the floor to be sure they are thick enough to handle sanding. You could rent a sander from an equipment rental shop, maybe even Home Depot if yours has a rental service. Then you would need to apply a finish according to its directions.

Which is "better", engineered hardwood or laminate wood flooring?

I am looking for a good quality wood floor that, if its not real wood, it atleast looks like real hardwood. Like all home owners, I would like a flooring that looks great, is durable, easy to clean, and doesn’t sound like your walking on plastic when wearing heels. Also important to note; 1) I own a large Husky 2) my home is on a concrete slab 3) I would like to maximize resale of my home. All or any advice is appreciated…. especially if you know of particular brands of good quality. Thank you!

Use engineered harwoord, definitely. Laminate wood has a very cheap look, it may be durable but it is not usually appealing to potential buyers. Real but engineered wood is a bit more expensive, but has many advantages to it. God quality wood s just as durable. If it wears out, it ca be scouted and repolished. Most importantly, it definitely looks (and sounds!) much better, as it doesn’t have this plastic glow of laminated wood.
