This weekend Hubby and I are having our wood floors “buffed and coated.” For those of you who are unfamiliar with the process it involves a professional lightly sanding your wood floors and then applying a finish. This process helps maintain the floors. Sure maybe this treatment wasn’t a necessity-but we made this project a priority because we have 70 pound Labrador whose nails are really rough on the floors. The floors were also in rougher condition than we remember them being before closing on the house. Oh the things you notice AFTER you purchase your house.
Getting a buff and coat puts off the need for traditional refinishing-which would have costs us upwards of $1500. I’d say we have at least 4-5 years before we will need to consider either another buff and coat treatment or traditional refinishing.
This is the second major investment that we have made in our home since we purchased in August. The first repair was replacing a toilet that was cracked in the basement (didn’t realize until after closing that it was broke…grrr).
Maybe now we can start saving for the bathroom and kitchen remodels! maintenance
