Faux Wood Floor Rubber Mat - 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 refurbished and be sanded? A lot of folks realize that parquet floors or first floor boards might be sanded back to produce a wonderful finished flooring, but what things to do having a fitted wooden flooring is a bit more confusing.
You have to find out what type of flooring you have, and most importantly that it's wood. I'm afraid the only option is to replace it in case your flooring is a wood effect laminate then. Laminate flooring comes in varying level of quality, but most of the time it is actually a wood effect print stuck to an MDF or plywood plank with a lacquer on top, sanding it would only sand off the paint and ruin the floor.
There are just two forms of fitted wooden flooring; the great news and engineered and solid wood flooring is, both refurbished and may be sanded to look as new as the day. As it features an identical construction, engineered wooden flooring can occasionally be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, typically between 3-5 mm bonded to your base of either MDF or ply board, because that it's fitted together with a tongue and groove and of its construction, it also stays very flat.
Solid wood flooring is more expensive to make and will necessarily cost more to purchase, but for me, it is not as great engineered as it is more prone to warping.
