Bona Water Based Wood Floor Finish - 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 refurbished and be sanded? Lots of people have a wooden floor in their own house that has been down for 6-10 years that's looking tired, boring, has spots or scratches in and has definitely seen better days. Most folks know that first floor boards or parquet floors may be sanded back to produce a finished flooring that is lovely, with a fitted wooden flooring is a bit more confusing, but what to do.
Firstly you must find out that it's wood, and most importantly what sort of flooring you might have. I am afraid the only option would be 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 essentially a wood effect print stuck with a lacquer on top to an MDF or plywood board, sanding it destroy the floor and would only sand the paint off.
There are just two forms of fitted wooden flooring; the good news along with solid and engineered wood flooring is, both refurbished and might be sanded to look as new as the day they were fitted. Engineered wooden flooring can occasionally be mistaken for laminate as it features an identical construction. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, usually between 3-5 millimeters bonded to some foundation of either ply or MDF board, because that it's fitted together with a tongue and groove and of its construction, it also remains very level.
Solid wood flooring is more expensive to make and will inevitably cost more to buy, but in my opinion, it's not as great a product as engineered as it is more vulnerable to warping.
