As floors grow old, they start losing their shine and looks and soon enough, you’ll be feeling the need to freshen them up.
Stuff you’ll Need When Buffing Hardwood Floors
The buffer is a piece of machinery that is specifically used for buffing hardwood floors, so it’s unreasonable to ask that you buy it from a hardware shop. You’ll only be using it to buff out your floor every couple of years, or more, so it’s not worth buying it in this case.
How to Buff Hardwood Floors Correctly
Step 1 – If you’ve just sanded the floor, make sure you vacuum it and clean it up thoroughly for dust and small particles.
Step 2 – Place the buffer in the middle of the room and try it out a bit. If it’s your first time buffing hardwood floors, then it will need a little getting used to.
Step 3 – Use fine abrasive screens of around 100-120 grit for best results
Step 4 – If the floor was finished using wax, you can’t screen it until you completely remove the wax coating.
5 - Remove the wax, buff, and
then wax again to get the floor looking great.
