Guide to Refinishing Hardwood Floors

To start refinishing hardwood floors, you are going to need to fill in any gaps and cracks. It is important to do this step first, because you are not going to be able to turn back and get this done after you have started the process. Remember that the winter months tend to be drier and as a result this makes cracks and gaps in the floor more visible.

So if you are going to be refinishing hardwood floors, your best bet is probably going to be to wait until the winter time so that the gaps and cracks open up more and you can get right in there and fill them up.

Then there are a few tools that you are going to need for refinishing hardwood floors, and this includes a drum sander, floor edger, buffer, orbiter or palm sander, putty knife and scraper, shop vac, natural bristle brush, and some ear protection if you want just to protect your ears from the loud noises of the machines while you are using them. This will be especially important if you already have bad hearing to begin with.

Sanding is the next step for refinishing your hardwood floors, and then you want to finish buffing the floor and this is to help tighten the wood grain before you go ahead with staining. The staining and finishing of the floors are going to be what really make all the difference here, and you want to make sure that you are using the right stains to use.
