The beauty of your hardwood floors needs to shine through. But your natural wood flooring looks dull, drab and kind of dirty. Even with regular DIY maintenance and cleaning, your floors may need something more.
Before you consider replacing or covering old, worn, stained or lackluster hardwoods, take a look at the professional-level services that can save your floors. Not only can these expertly offered options change the look and feel of your floors, but they can also save you time and money.
Instead of spending your entire weekend or every evening buffing and polishing or investing in a completely new install, these processes provide plenty of opportunities to keep your existing floors and relax as someone else does the work for you.

Sanding and Buffing

Sanding your hardwood floors removes more than just the surface coating. This type of restoration process goes down deeper, stripping the outer polyurethane sealant as well as the top layer of underlying wood.
If your floors only have surface damage, such as scratches in the sealant, buffing (and not sanding) may suffice. Buffing removes the top coat, giving the pros the chance to re-seal it with a shiny, fresh layer of sealant. But if your floors have stains, deep scratches or other damage that extends below the clear surface, sanding may be the way to go.
While it's tempting to rent a sander and try to remove the top layers of your floor yourself, a DIY job might not end up saving you money. Uneven sanding can cause obvious imperfections that may ruin the look of your floors. Unless you have expert knowledge/training and the correct machinery/tools, a professional is the best option for this job.
