POLISHING WITH OSMO HARDWAX OILAn old and worn-out wooden floor looks quite ungainly and can create problems of its own. So it is a good thing to do wood floor restoration. Here are a few effective tips to make your old wooden floor look great.

First things first

Clean the surface of your wooden floor thoroughly first with a wax remover or wood cleaner. If you feel that you should strip some piece, remove the entire old paint or finish thoroughly. Keep the wood surface wet by applying sufficient stripper. After the stripping is done, repair the surface if necessary as this will assure a better finish. Then make the surface absolutely smooth by using sandpaper with the appropriate grit.

Staining and finishing

If you want to add color and impart a different texture and look to your old wooden floor, floor sanding and polishing is the thing to do. You can select from a wide range of colors and finishes. Since staining can highlight imperfections, screening the floor is absolutely essential. You can choose from a wide range of colors, but take care when you choose one. Let the stain dry for a day or two before the floor is ready for the final floor finishing. Various finishing materials like Swedish finishes, water based and oil modified polyurethanes and lacquer sealers are available in the market. However the two polyurethane finishes have clear advantage over the others. But the final choice rests with the user.
