Q: Should hardwood floors be sanded down and refinished on a regular basis?
I understand when apartment buildings and remodelers of old houses sand and refinish hardwood floors. But, honestly, I don't think I know a single friend or family member who has refinished a hardwood floor, unless they were buying an older house or doing a major remodel. Are we missing out on something? Should we be sanding down and refinishing our floors every 5 or 10 years?
No. One of the wonderful things about hardwood flooring is its longevity. Sanding and refinishing your floor is not necessary unless they have really taken a beating and your doing it to restore the appearance or if you are considering a new look and changing the color of floor.
