So, you've had your hardwood floors for quite a few years now and you are starting to notice they aren't quite as stunningly shiny and bright as they used to be. Maybe you've begun to notice little patches where the sun has discolored the planks, or maybe all of those little scratches have built up over the years and now you're wondering if there is anything you can do to return your floor to its former glory, or if you just need to replace your floor altogether.

Well, Delair’s Carpet Barn has good news! You probably just need a little help from a wood floor refinishing service! Here are three reasons why you might want to consider hiring a hardwood floor refinishing team for your home!

1. You'll Save Money in the Long Run

One of the great things about wood flooring is that it can be returned to like-new condition by sanding and refinishing the planks. This is a great way to fix all of the little problems that tend to pile up over the years, such as scratches, gouges, and discoloration. It's also a great opportunity to replace some of the protective coatings that protect your floors from further damage.

If you wait too long and too much damage piles up, you might be looking at having to pony up the cash for a whole new flooring installation. By sanding and refinishing your floors, you can extend the service life of your flooring by decades.

2. You Can Change Up Your Look

A floor refinishing service can also offer you the opportunity to change the aesthetic of your hardwood flooring. Re-sanding and refinishing offers the perfect opportunity to change the color of your flooring, without having to install a new floor.

If you've found that your decor has mutated, and your floor no longer compliments the environment around it, you might want to consider hiring a floor refinishing team to set things straight.

3. You Can Make Minor Repairs More Easily

The time spent on your wood floor refinishing project is also an excellent opportunity to take care of minor structural problems your floor may be experiencing. It's a great time to nail down creaky or loose planks, or secure loose nails.

These are just a few of the benefits of sanding and refinishing your floors.
