There may be no specific time when you must or can refinish the wood floor in your home or property. Refinishing or recoating your wood floor depends on a number of factors including personal preferences. Some people may prefer their flooring to have a new look at all time, while others may want their flooring to have an “aging” ancient look.

Generally speaking, it is recommended that after initial floor installation your floors to be sanded and refinished once every 5 – 10 years. The time period varies depending on the traffic and overall usage.

Solid wood can usually be sanded more often because the wood above the tongue is thicker than that in the wear layer of an engineered wood. While solid wood in most cases can be sanded down a few times, engineered is mostly limited to 1 to 2 times.

Dull, worn-out floors call for wood refinishing

While hardwood floors can be very beautiful and even last for centuries, they need care and proper maintenance. They must be sanded at regular intervals.

If you have a lot of scratches, especially those scratches that have worn through the stain, then you have to refinish the floor to protect it from further damages.
