White Mold Wood Floor - One question I have been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old fitted wooden floor be sanded and refurbished? Lots of people have a wooden floor inside their house which has been down for 6-10 years that's looking tired, boring, has stains or scratches in and has definitely seen better days. Many people realize that first floor boards or parquet floors could be sanded back to produce a finished flooring that is wonderful, using a fitted wooden flooring is a bit more confusing, but what to do.
Firstly you must discover what sort of flooring you have, & most importantly that it's wood. I am afraid the only real option is to replace it if your flooring is a wood effect laminate then. Laminate flooring comes in varying level of quality, but most of the time it's actually a wood effect print stuck to either an MDF or plywood plank using a lacquer on top, sanding it would sand off the paint and ruin the floor.
There are two kinds of fitted wooden flooring; the great news along with solid and engineered wood flooring is, both refurbished and could be sanded to look as new as the day. As it features an identical building engineered wooden flooring can occasionally be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, typically between 3-5 millimeters bonded to a base of ply or MDF board, because that it is fitted together using a tongue and groove and of its building, it also stays really flat.
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 good a product as engineered as it's more vulnerable to warping.
