Help is available if you have been putting off hardwood floor refinishing because it’s too difficult. Kilburn Floor Sanding , Kilburn’s premier flooring company and a National Wood Floor Association winner, has a state-of-the-art dustless floor refinishing system that does the job in just a few days – and you don’t have to move out.
DUSTLESS REFINISHING TECHNIQUE
The worst thing about refinishing floors used to be the dust. No matter how many times you taped or removed window treatments and sealed your cabinets, dust from the sanders remained in your home and settled for months. Now it’s over.
BONA’s Atomic Dust Containment System (you may have seen their products in stores) is a great way to reduce the amount of sanding dust. You and your pets can still stay in your home during this process. The BONA system captures dust particles and then immediately suckers them to a truck-mounted containment system. Because there is no stress on homeowners and technicians’ respiratory systems, this technology is much healthier for everyone. The BONA system reduces dust in the air by 99.8%. If you have asthma or any other respiratory issues, it is possible to have your floors redone. The new finish is smooth and clear because there are no microscopic dust particles falling from the ceiling vents. No granular spots are added to the finish.
BONA DUSTLESS IS EASIER
If you were refinishing your floors by hand, it was difficult to move the entire house, especially if you had a large home with all floors. BONA is a cheaper way to refinish floors. There are no storage fees, hotels or pet boarding.
Kilburn Floor Sanding invites you to contact us for a consultation on how the BONA Dustless process can restore your floors to their former sheen and shine. You’ll be glad that you took the time to have a consultation.
Laminate is the easiest flooring option to install. You can even do it by yourself since the clicking method is very simple and no glue or nails are needed. There are other benefits of having laminate flooring, too. As opposed to hardwood flooring, you can lay laminate on almost every surface. You can place it with areas with high humidity levels which can’t be said for any other wood flooring type. And the best thing is laminate is very cheap compared to your other flooring options!
Not only laminate floors are a good choice when it comes to pricing, but they can also be very beautiful! Replacing your worn flooring surface with a good-looking laminate will definitely improve the look of your flat or house. It’s amazing how such a cheap and easy change of the flooring surface can make your entire place look and feel different.
1. Quebracho – From the Spanish “quebrar hacha,” which literally means
“axe breaker.” Aptly named, wood in the Schinopsis genus is among the
heaviest and hardest in the world.
2. Lignum Vitae -Widely accepted as the hardest wood in the world–this
wood has been listed as an endangered species and is listed in CITES.
Consider Verawood as a very close substitute.
3. Gidgee – This Australian endemic is both very heavy and very strong.
Some pieces are dark enough to be used as an ebony substitute: one that’s
even harder than the original article.
4. Snakewood – It’s easy to see what makes Snakewood so unique–its patterns
and markings resemble the skin of a snake. Limited supply and high demand
make this one of the most expensive woods on eart.
5. Verawood – Sometimes called Argentine Lignum Vitae, this wood is a gem:
inexpensive, great olive-green color, beautiful feathery grain pattern, and
it takes a great natural polish on the lathe.
6. Camelthorn – Formerly classified as a member of the Acacia genus, this
south African hardwood is a tough customer. The wood is stubbornly hard,
and the tree is protected by giant sharp thorns.
7. African Blackwood – In some parts of the world, this wood has achieved
an almost legendary status. Historical evidence points to this wood
(rather than Diospyros spp.) being the original “ebony.”
8. Black Ironwood – Pieces are very seldom seen for sale, as this tree is
too small to produce commercially viable lumber. Like the unrelated
Desert Ironwood, Black Ironwood is an excellent choice for small
9. Katalox / Wamara – Some pieces can be just about a dark as true ebony,
while others are a more reddish brown with black streaks. So much depth
in the Swartzia genus, there’s something for everyone!
10. Cebil- Also known as Curupay or by the exaggerated name Patagonian
Rosewood, Cebil is not a true rosewood. It has a highly variable streaked
appearance not too unlike Goncalo Alves.
-Prep your floor for cleaning by sweeping or dust-mopping to get rid of large particles of dirt and debris.
-Use a pH neutral cleaner that will be gentle on your hardwood floors.
-Use a fine spray mist to clean your floor in sections. Avoid putting too much liquid on your floors.
-Use a microfiber mop to clean. Traditional mops can work, but they can leave excess water on your floors.
-Skip using white vinegar and water to clean your floors. Using a specially formulated hardwood floor care cleaner is a smart way to maintain the beauty and look of your floors.
