Refinishing Hardwood Floors

Friend Us On Facebook!

Over the past two weeks I’ve taken upon myself to refinish my beautiful hardwood floors that have been covered up with carpeting for several years. Since I’ve been experiencing this project first hand I wanted to take some time and provide all of you with the proper steps as to how to go about refinishing your floors the right way. I’ve notice that when buying material for refinishing the floors you might go back to the store several times and speak with different helpers around the store each time. Each of them will tell you three different ways on how to refinish your wood floors.
Here are the steps that worked for me.

Step One: Remove carpet & pad
Step Two: CAREFULLY remove all the staples, (even the hard to get ones).
Step Three: Remove the tact stripes
Step Four: Fill in with wood putty all the separated boards.
*** You do not have to fill in all the little whole from the tact stripes. This will be a nightmare when going to sand.
Step Five: Sand Sand Sand
*** Depending on if your changing the color of the floor or depending on the damage of the floor that will decide what grit sand paper to start with. If you don’t know how to sand ask before starting or have a friend help.
Step Six: Sweep and vacuum up all the loose debris.
Step Seven: Use rubbing alcohol to wipe down all the finer debris before you apply your first coat of stain.
Step Eight: Stain your floor. Use a 10 inch applicator that can attach to a broom stick.
Step Nine: Stain again if you want it slightly darker.
Step Ten: Apply your first coat of polyurethane.
Step Eleven: Lightly sand with 180-220 grit and wipe down with a tact cloth in between polyurethane coats.
Step Twelve: Repeat as many times as you want. I suggest minimum of 3 coats.
Step thirteen: Enjoy! Relax! and let dry for at least 3 days before moving furniture onto floors.

Does sludge build up in the stack a sewer pipe

Yes, 100% sludge and all other debris fills the circumference of a sewer stack and the rest of the sewer pipe over time.

Make sure to get your sewer line and other drain lines cleaned yearly. Drain lines work better when unclogged and they stay in tact longer. When your experiencing a clogged drain or sewer pipe that means you’ve neglected it and should have cleaned it sooner. Some exceptions apply like when dealing with a garbage disposal line. They can clog up cause of food or grease in the line that has had time to build up and become thickened.

Waste water treatment plants

Easy to read map of a waste water treatment plant. People are sometimes curious as to where debris goes when it exits their homes. Some people might think once they flush and put something down their drains it’s magically gone, well think again. Lots of hard work goes into separating sewage and water. Water that we use is recycled and we eventually use it again.
