How to Refinish Wooden Floors


Over the past few decades, wooden floors have again become popular.  A well-maintained wooden floor is easier to take care of than carpet and can be the focal point of a room or entranceway.  Many owners of older homes have been surprised to find a beautiful wooden floor underneath the carpeting.  In this case, the floor may look well worn but can look as good as new after refinishing.

Refinishing an older wooden floor is a challenging task, but the results are worth the effort. 

These are the steps required to refinish a wooden floor:

  • Sand the floor with a drum sander
  • Edge the floor with a handheld sander
  • Apply filler to fill in cracks, gasp and holes
  • Stain and finish the floor
