The wood floor revitalization technique requires the wood to be at least half an inch thick, but if your floor is thinner and with broken edges, we also repair wood floors, and this restoration process requires specialized work. The floor will be restored and sanded completely evenly and existing defects will be almost imperceptible.
Revitalization can cause scratches, discoloration, warped rulers, sunburned and stained rulers to disappear, also along with the application of new layers of varnish, the wood revitalizes its appearance again. In places with medium circulation, the service life can be up to ten years or more depending on the quality of the varnish.
How to revitalize wooden floors
Revitalizing hardwood floors is a difficult service that requires a lot of attention and professionalism from the person that´s doing it. Usually two machines are used for floor scraping in any environment and a small machine for sanding the edges.
The large machine that does this wooden floor revitalization service is very heavy and dangerous. The person who´s authorized to handle this equipment needs to be a skilled and experienced professional.
The scraping is done with 5 different sandpaper grits, from the thickest number 24 to remove the old resin and leveling the often warped floor to the thinnest number 100 to polish it.
After sanding the first time, the old caulking is removed manually with an special tool and then the woodfloor is cleaned with a vacuum cleaner. There can be no bit of the old caulk because in the future this little piece will come off the floor and it´ll create a hole in the grout.
The best material used to make caulking is polyurethane which is called by the professionals of polyurethane glue . This type of glue does not unstick of the floor. It forms a strong material that is very resistant to water, high/low temperatures and remains flexible after drying. The color of this glue should be the same of the wood that´s being restored.
The polyurethane glue will help to hold the wooden floor together, making it difficult to make noise and won´t unhook in the future.
The caulking needs to be well done and in the ideal color, because it is what makes up the final charm on the wooden floor.
Performing floor caulking
Once the Caulking is done on all floors, it is necessary to allow to dry overnight and after proceeding with the revitalization of wood floors with the other sandpaper the next day. After the polishing is done, the next step is to clean the local, such as walls and floors. Only then comes the finishing part - that is the resin applications.
The first step is to apply a base coat on the floor and then let it dry naturaly. This process is repeated at least three times.The third coat of resin for the floor is smooth and well protected and the floor is also cleaned between one coat and another, so that there is no trace of dust in the application.
After all is over, it is rewarding to see the satisfaction of our customers.
