Rejuvenate Floor Restorer on Laminate Flooring

bamboo flooring No Comments »

We installed laminate wood flooring in our hall, kitchen and family room. Shortly thereafter, our dishwasher overflowed and the shine never came back on our flooring. We saw your commercial and my hubby decided to try the floor products and WOW, the floors look brand new. We got such compliments and our floors are so shiny and rich looking. Thanks so much for making such a great product. We recommend it to all our friends with wood or laminate flooring. We don’t normally write about products but this really protected a big investment in our house. Keep up the good work.

What are the necessary steps to take to prep hardwood floors before refinishing?

hard wood floor refinishing 5 Comments »

More specifically, do I need to actually clean the floor before starting any kind of refinishing/resurfacing?

You want to do this right the first time. It’s a big job! First you will need to remove all foot boards and heating grates and reset any nails that have raised over the years. Next, sand the floors to give it some tooth. If you are going to re stain you need to go all the way to the bare wood. (rent a floor sander it will save you time and be a lot easier on your back.) The most important part is to get all the dust up after sanding. I suggest, first vacuum with an upright then go back in with an attachment with a brush and scrub the brush into the grooves between all the boards where an accumulation of dust will hide. Leave the room for 30 minutes to let all the dust that’s been stirred up from the vacuum, settle. Then go over the entire floor with a tack cloth. I know it’s a lot of prep, but the end result will be well worth the extra prep. If you have the extra money, hire the pros. Oh and use large sheets of plastic to cover door ways to contain the dust another step that is well worth the extra time.
