While some flooring trends constantly go in and out of fashion, one style has stood the test of time and proven itself to be a timeless classic – the bare wooden floorboard. Very often, houses are hiding fantastic looking floorboards under worn out carpets – and when this is the case, all you need to do is remove the offending carpet before sanding and polishing the wood to its former glory. In addition to improving your property’s aesthetics, you’ll also enjoy easier cleaning and upkeep. Other benefits of floor sanding and polishing include:
The benefits don’t just stop at improved looks and cleaning compatibility – polished wood floors are also much better for the health of allergy sufferers. Carpets can harbour dust and other allergens that can trigger asthma and wreak havoc on those who suffer from allergies. With a quick sweep with a broom, a polished wooden floor can be cleared of dust mites, pet hair, pollen and other nasty allergens, while a carpet will cling on to these annoying and unwanted guests until it’s thoroughly vacuumed or subjected to a costly steam clean.
Another benefit of wooden flooring is the fact that it can be customised to suit your specific tastes. Perhaps you want the colour of your floor to match the dining room furniture you own, or maybe you want a colour that will brighten up the room. Once you’ve sanded your floorboards, there are a number of beautiful colours you can choose from when it comes to staining – and given the beautiful natural grains found in many types of wood, you’re sure to be blown away by the results. You can choose from pre-made colours or even mix your own to create a truly customised and original shade that you can call your own.
