Buffing hardwood floors can be another alternative to refinishing your hardwood floor. It is much cheaper and simpler than refinishing, yet still can improve the appearance of your house. By buffing the hardwood, you can remove little scratches that will make your floor more attractive and shiny. The only downside of buffing is that it takes a lot of time, especially if you decided to do it on your own.
There are few steps you need to take before buffing hardwood floors. You can purchase or rent a floor buffing machine first. Don’t forget to move any furniture or other obstacles before you turn the machine on. You also have to remove the wax first from previous polishing by using wax stripper or other chemicals by following the instruction.
Clean the hardwood floor first with warm water and cleaning solution to remove any dust. Make sure that it’s completely dry before continuing to the next step. Don’t forget to wear safety clothes and other measures to protect yourself from any injury. Plan the buffing route before you begin buffing, because many buffing machines have their own set ups. Therefore, you have to really understand how the machine works. Afterwards, you can just start buffing hardwood floors.
