If your engineered hardwood floor has lost its shine and there are stains and deep scratches, you may want to consider refinishing engineered hardwood floors. The process will restore the condition of your hardwood floors to look like new. The process of sanding begins with removing the floor’s thin layer that typically shows the dents and scratches. Then apply a finishing coat to bring back the shine.
Engineered hardwood floors and hardwood floors are different due to how they are crafted. The engineered hardwood has thin layer of the hardwood veneer that is attached to the base layer which is often layers of plywood or medium-density fiberboard. That is why refinishing engineered hardwood floors won’t be the same process with refinishing a hardwood floor. You should know how thick the layer is and if your floor has already been refinished beforehand.
If you have hardwood or engineered hardwood floors, a refinishing job can be expected to be done around every 15 years. If the layer is about 1mm, refinishing is not really recommended. But if it is at least 2mm, once or twice of refinishing job can be done. You can refinish up to three times for a 3mm of layer. Refinishing engineered hardwood floors with a layer of 4mm or more is not supposed to be done for over five times.
