Wood floors can be some of the most beautiful floors out there. However, they require a system of processes to properly fix and maintain, especially if they are athletic floors.
Over time, hardwood floors get scratched and become dull. Instead of replacing your gym’s hardwood, the floors can be refinished. Real hardwood floors can be refinished several times before the erosion from the sanding eats into the tongue and groove of the hardwood strips.
Once a floor is sanded and prepped, a finish is applied. Hardwood floors experience color differences with different types of finishes, so it is important to make sure that the proper finish is being used to achieve the color you desire. Water based finishes leave the floor naturally clean looking, whereas solvent based finishes tend to bring out the rich wood tones of a the material.
Abraid, Scrub, and Re-coat
Once a floor has been refinished, the process will be repeated as many times as necessary to achieve the desired surface. The amount of time until the next recoat will vary depending on several factors including:
- The acceptable appearance of the floor.
- The conditions where the floor is located.
- The type of activities the floor is used for.
- The amount of traffic and the level of maintenance performed on the floor.
