Wood Floor Sanding & Maintenance Tips for the DIY lovers?
If you have a beautiful home, you just cannot sit back and admire it. Maintenance the key to a well kept admirable home always. Wood floor sanding needs to be paid attention to. So all the DIY lovers, here are a few maintenance tips for you.
It is essential to clean the old layers of wax from the floor as they leave the floor dirty and makes the floor loose its shine. Wax removers might be effective on a newly done floor but not on one that has been installed some time back. You could always resort to white spirit. However, since this is a chemical, read the instructions carefully and use the hand and face protections before using this. To do dust free floor sanding or to clean up old dirt, you can always use a vacuum cleaner, a soft broom or a cylinder cleaner having a brush nozzle. Never use a washing up liquid that might damage the floor. You can wash the floor with little water and a scrubber.
Avoid using Wax polish or Power Wax as this will make your floor slippery. Find out which product suits your floor the best and use it carefully according to the instructions given. After using the maintenance product you can buff your floor for the best result. An electric small buffing machine will not be too effective. Use a conventional cast iron buffing block or a semi-professional buffer with a large white pad. In order to protect your floor, use a maintenance product at least once in five or six months if your area is pollution prone, to avoid dirt or wax on your floor.
