Installing a hardwood floor is a flooring option that will require little maintenance and can last hundreds of years. So, while deciding what type of hardwood flooring and finishes to install, it is important to think of the future and the maintenance. You want your hardwood flooring to require little attention daily and throughout the years.
Hardwood flooring requires little daily attention except for the routine sweeping, dust mopping, or vacuuming. Your hardwood flooring manufacturer can provide you with detailed directions on how to properly care for your flooring, helping you avoid damaging, unnecessary measures such as wet-mopping or harsh chemicals.
After years of wear and foot traffic, your hardwood floor may become dull and need a routine maintenance. For the most part, floors that have only minor scratches and are dull can be recoated. If you choose a hardwood flooring manufacturer which offers options, such as Rehmeyer Floors’ Tung Oil finish, available on any Rehmeyer custom floor, you will ensure that your hardwood flooring will be easily repairable and easily recoatable.
A Tung Oil Finish makes minor scratches and dents easily repairable. This option provides a beautiful, natural finish on the hardwood flooring, which can be repaired easily without recoating the entire floor. If you do choose to recoat your entire floor after a few years, a Tung Oil Finish has bonding properties that allow the floor to be recoated as many times as needed, allowing it to bond with the previous coating. You will not be forced to sand the floor the entire way down to the original wood, like many other finishes. Instead, you can lightly scuff the floor to remove any minor scratching left from normal wear and tear.
A Rehmeyer Floors’ Tung Oil finish can be added to any custom floor and will ensure routine maintenance is relatively simple. This finish also penetrates deeply into the wood, enhancing the natural characteristics of the wood species and providing a deep, long lasting luster.
If you do not decide to use a Tung Oil finish, alternative finishes may be available. Contact the Rehmeyer Floors staff to learn about the possible finishes for your hardwood flooring.
When choosing your hardwood flooring, it is important to consider future routine maintenance. After years in a high traffic area, your hardwood floor will likely have a few scratches or look a bit duller. If you do your research before installing and choose an option such as a Tung Oil Finish, your future maintenance will be much easier and less costly. You will be able to easily repair any scratches and, if necessary, recoat the entire floor without having to sand down to the original wood.
