Wood Floor Buffer Machine - One question I've been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old fitted wooden floor refurbished and be sanded? Many people have a wooden floor in their house that's been down for 6-10 years that is looking tired, dull, has stains or scratches in and has definitely seen better days. Most people understand what to do having a fitted wooden flooring is a little more confusing, although that first floor boards or parquet floors might be sanded back to produce a finished flooring that is wonderful.
Firstly you should learn which type of flooring you have, and most importantly that it is wood. In case your flooring is a wood effect laminate then I am afraid the sole alternative would be to replace it. Laminate flooring comes in varying degree of quality, but most of the time it's actually a wood effect print stuck using a lacquer on top to either an MDF or plywood plank, sanding it'd sand off the paint and destroy the floor.
There are just two types of fitted wooden flooring; the good thing along with engineered and solid wood flooring is, both refurbished and may be sanded to look as new as the day. Engineered wooden flooring can occasionally be mistaken for laminate as it has the same construction. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 millimeters bonded to some foundation of MDF or ply board, due to its construction and that it is fitted together using a tongue and groove, it also remains really flat.
This implies if sanded correctly you ought to only have to sand off less than a millimeter, or so the floor can usually be sanded up to 3 times If your floor is solid wood flooring it is going to possess a similar appearance to engineered on the surface, but nevertheless, it'll be built completely of one piece of wood from your top layer of the foundation. Solid wood flooring is more expensive to make and will inevitably cost more to purchase, but for me, it isn't as good engineered as it's more vulnerable to warping.
