Staining Fir Wood Floors - One question I've been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring business is; can my old fitted wooden floor be sanded and refurbished? A lot of people know that parquet floors or first floor boards could be sanded back to make a lovely finished flooring, but what to do with a fitted wooden flooring is a little more confusing.
You must determine that it is wood, and most importantly which kind of flooring you might have. I'm afraid the only real option is to replace it if your flooring is a wood effect laminate then.
There are just two types of wooden flooring that is fitted; the great news along with engineered and solid wood flooring is, both might be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day. As it's an identical building, engineered wooden flooring can sometimes be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, usually between 3-5 mm bonded to some foundation of either ply or MDF board, because that it is fitted together using a tongue and groove and of its building, additionally, it stays quite flat.
Solid wood flooring is more expensive to make and certainly will inevitably cost a lot more to purchase, but for me, it isn't as great a product as engineered as it is more vulnerable to warping.
