RESTORING HARDWOOD FLOORS THAT HAVE BEEN HIDDEN UNDER CARPET
You recently bought a new residence, and you would like to tear out the old fashioned carpets (or grout and tile ) and expose the hardwood flooring underneath. Or maybe you would like to restore or update your parent's old house in preparation available. Whatever the case, below are some clever rules of thumb to remember.
What happened to your carpeting (and flooring ) before the recovery process will radically dictate the approaches you need to follow. Maybe the former owner laid the wood flooring loosely or just attached the rugs on the borders. Or perhaps the proprietor sloppily glued the rug within the timber.
The first step is clear: remove the old carpet and any remaining"junk," such as nails, glue, adhesive, etc.. In case the previous owner did utilize carpet glue, you might need to refinish the floor by sanding down the residue or utilizing an adhesive remover. If the old owner nailed the carpeting, you will need to fill in the nail holes.
Be aware: lots of old hardwood flooring can't withstand tough remediation techniques, such as sanding. The floors might be too old, brittle, warped, or otherwise corrupted. This is the best situation for our "No-Sanding" Refinish Process we prefer to phone RX for Wood Floors.
You also had to scan (and possibly manage) water damage, mildew and mould damage, and pest and pest infestations.
A easy restoration job may turn out to be anything but. As an example, the wood might look normal on top; under, but it may be corroded or sterile.
