Refinishing Hardwood Floors Without Sanding
The easiest and least expensive way to refinish hardwood floors is without sanding. If your hardwood floors are old, scratched, or look dull, just apply a liquid floor restorer with a sponge mop, and watch your floors shine like new.
Refinishing Hardwood Floors with a floor sander is a huge mess. If you do the job yourself, you’ll need to rent a sander and buy a variety range of grits of sandpaper, as well as stain, and a floor finish or polyurethane. You’ll needs to cover everything with sheets, and cover your vents, so no dust enters your HVAC System.
If your hardwood floor is in good shape, but the finish is dull, refinishing hardwood floors without sanding may be enough: apply one or two coats of a good quality floor restorer and your hardwood floors will shine like new.
A simple, inexpensive floor restorer will save you a lot of money, as well as time, hassle, and the risk of permanent damage to your floors. The cost to refinish about 600 square feet is twenty bucks. Pro Shot® Floor Restorer consistently receives five star reviews for a reason.
The cost to hire a professional to refinish 600 square feet of hardwood floors can be close to $2,000. It’s not cheap, and it’s very disruptive and messy. It always makes good sense to try a low cost alternative first because if your not happy with the results you can always hire someone.
So, what should refinishing hardwood floors cost?
To refinish the hardwood floors yourself, about twenty or twenty five dollars. Begin by vacuuming the floor, or lightly sweep with a soft broom to remove all of the surface dust and grit. The grit is what causes most of the scratches to your hardwood floors, so it’s important to sweep or vacuum regularly.
Next, dissolve a few drops of dish liquid in a bucket of water. Dish liquid makes a good neutral floor cleaner. Dip a sponge mop in the bucket, wring it out until it’s damp, and begin cleaning. Never use a dripping wet mop on a hardwood floor. After cleaning your hardwood floor with dish liquid and water, repeat with just water to remove any film that was left behind. Dry the floor afterward.
Finally, pour Pro Shot® Floor Restorer directly on the floor, dip the sponge mop into the solution, and gently glide the sponge mop back and forth applying no pressure at all.
The best thing about the cost to refinish hardwood floors is that it turns out to be cheaper and easier than you thought.
