One of the quickest options for revamping your hardwood flooring, buffing can clear your floor of everyday scratches and small gouges that mar its surface. Also referred to as “screening,” this technique employs a special tool armed with screen grits to return your floor to its original luster. Typically, the process is complete with an application of a polyurethane finish.
Sanding and refinishing your hardwood flooring is a more comprehensive process that’s usually your best bet for very old or more severely damaged hardwood floors. Using a drum sander with varying-sized grits, this process returns your floor to its bare bones before filling in cracks or uneven spots with a wood filler. You can even change your floor’s stain color and bring bold, new life to your old flooring in this manner.
