In your home or office, your floor is one of the major focal points that will immediately catch the eye of visitors. The type of flooring you have can significantly impact the aesthetic attractiveness of a room, and it can impact how clean a room appears. If you plan to restore your floors, consider these four tips first.
Once you have decided to restore your floors, you should consider hiring a professional team to do it for you. SunCoast Flooring Solutions have the industry experience needed to restore your floors and have your home looking and feeling more welcoming.
1. Uncover More About Your Floor
If you’re planning on restoring your office or household floors, you need to first learn more about them.
For example, there are certain types of asphalt and vinyl floors that could contain asbestos. If you have flooring with this toxic substance and your floors have tears, breaks, or cracks, the asbestos is released into your environment. When inhaled, asbestos can cause serious long-term diseases to the lungs and other vital organs.
Essentially, if your flooring is asphalt or vinyl and it was installed before 1978, it’s likely that your flooring contains asbestos. A professional flooring company needs to be aware of this before restoring your floors to keep themselves and you safe.
Additionally, a professional flooring company will also be able to dispose of any materials that are not needed safely.
2. Choose A Floor Restoration Method
Once you have learned more about your flooring, you should decide what type of flooring restoration method you want to use.
In the past, many restoration methods would involve sanding and refinishing, which tended to be messy and expensive. Additionally, these methods did not work on all types of flooring as vinyl and laminate could not be renewed by sanding and finishing.
Fortunately, a few companies like SunCoast Flooring Solutions realized this issue needed to be addressed. That’s why they created alternative floor restoration methods that don’t involve toxic chemicals, sanding, and mess.
3. Realize It Will Take Time
Depending on the method you choose, you need to realize the time it takes to restore floors can vary significantly. Therefore, try to keep realistic expectations. For example, some methods can take three to five days, while others can take less than a full day.
4. Learn What To Expect
You need to do your research and choose a flooring restoration company you know you can trust to do a spectacular job. This company also needs to be reputable, reliable, and trustworthy.
Often a flooring restoration company will have you sign a contract, and depending on this contract; you can glean if it’s a company you want to work with.
Additionally, before signing a contract, you must clearly state your expectations and budget, and you need to learn how long it will realistically take.
If you know what to expect, you can avoid running into problems.
