Swiffer Sweeper Wood Floors - One question I have been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring business is; can my old wooden floor that is fitted be sanded and refurbished? Many folks know things to do having a fitted wooden flooring is a bit more confusing, although that original floor boards or parquet floors might be sanded back to produce a finished flooring that is lovely.
You must learn which kind of flooring you might have, & most importantly that it is wood. I am afraid the only alternative is to replace it if your flooring is a wood effect laminate then. Laminate flooring comes in varying degree of quality, but most of the time it is basically a wood effect print stuck to either an MDF or plywood board using a lacquer on top, sanding it ruin the floor and would only sand the paint off.
There are just two types of fitted wooden flooring; the good news along with engineered and solid wood flooring is, both refurbished and could be sanded to look as new as the day. Engineered wooden flooring can sometimes be mistaken for laminate as it features a similar building. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, typically between 3-5 mm bonded to a base of MDF or ply board, due to its building and that it is fitted together using a tongue and groove, it also remains really level.
Solid wood flooring certainly will necessarily cost a lot more to buy and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it isn't as great a product as engineered as it is more vulnerable to warping.
