Protecting your floors is an important part of maintenance to ensure they will last for decades. Caring for them takes more than gentle swipes across the floors to clean them. Using a polyurethane coating ensures that you can protect their appearance and keep them structurally intact for years to come. But this should be done by a professional. Calgary Hardwood Repair offers clients coating for hardwood that is of the highest quality to keep your floors stunning. We use state of the art equipment and we have decades of experience providing this service.
Timing is Key
You’ve had your hardwood floors installed years ago or maybe you bought your home and they were already there, but you’re not sure when exactly they should be recoated. It should typically happen anytime between 3 to 5 years and our expert team can evaluate your hardwood floor to provide you with professional feedback. Having a set of eyes look at your flooring to determine how scratched and dented it is, and whether a recoating is needed or if we can employ polish to restore them can save you time and money. Timing is a key factor that can help you preserve and protect your hardwood floors for as long as possible. This procedure will often prevent the need for more invasive procedures to protect heavily damaged flooring. Whether you have flooring that is a generation old or installed within the last few years, consulting with a licensed, certified and insured contractor gives you added protection.
Wear and Tear
Over time, all flooring will eventually experience wear and tear though some are more susceptible than others. Luckily hardwood floors can withstand tough daily use and high foot traffic. However, even they need care and attention to protect them from the constant tread of feet, heavy furniture sitting on them or dragged across their surface. Even dust and debris from outdoors can damage the surface of your flooring if it is not routinely cleaned. If you’re walking indoors with shoes on, you are likely tracking in dirt on the soles of your shoes that will create scratch marks. Recoating your floors can go a long way to minimizing the effect of this occurring.
Most of us love sunlight streaming into our homes and the way sun hits your hardwood floors can look glorious. When clean and polished it looks warm and inviting and you remember exactly why you wanted it installed in your home. It’s not just an investment in market value, it also increases your quality of life. But with all the amazing sun, you can leave your hardwood floors vulnerable to color fading from UV rays. You may not notice this for a while, but over time your floors will start to look faded out in the areas where sunlight hits the longest. This is when recoating may be needed to strengthen your floors ability to withstand sunlight in these areas. With our high quality coating, we are able to restore your hardwood floors back to their former glory for you to enjoy again.
When you compare your options for floor preservation, you will see that prevention is far better than curing a bigger problem because you delayed to address it. We can extend the lifespan of your flooring with our exceptional coating methods. This is a strategy that should take place periodically in the lifetime of your floors. When you call us for an evaluation, we can provide you with professional feedback to determine if coating is needed, when and how often.
