Beeswax For Wooden Floors - One question I have already 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 realize that original floor boards or parquet floors could be sanded back to create a finished floor that is wonderful, having a fitted wooden floor is a little more confusing, but things to do.
Firstly you must determine what kind of floor you might have, and most importantly that it is wood. If your floor is a wood effect laminate then I'm afraid the sole alternative is to replace it. Laminate flooring comes in varying degree of quality, but most of the time it's essentially a wood effect print stuck with a lacquer on top to an MDF or plywood board, sanding it'd sand off the paint and ruin the floor.
There are just two types of wooden flooring that is fitted; the good thing and engineered and solid wood flooring is, both could be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day. As it has a similar building engineered wooden flooring will often be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, typically between 3-5 millimeters bonded to your foundation of either ply or MDF board, due to its building and that it's fitted together with a tongue and groove, additionally, it stays really level.
Solid wood flooring certainly will inevitably cost a lot more to buy and is more expensive to make, but for me, it's not as good engineered as it's more prone to warping.
