Replacing Your Old Carpet with Wood Flooring
Imagine finding jewels hidden in your home! Many homeowners have removed their existing linoleum or carpet to uncover beautiful border work on a floor that had been covered for years. Not only are designs being uncovered, but older homes offer higher quality hardwood flooring.
At Hawaii Hardwood Flooring, we are experts when it comes to polishing your hidden jewel. We are experienced in sanding and refinishing floors to help refresh your rooms and bring the sparkle back into your home. We’ll answer any questions you might have, give free estimates and beautify your floors, keeping in mind your aesthetic desires and health.
What To Expect When The Carpet Is Removed
You may discover carpet padding and/or carpet tack strips that have been attached with staples or adhesive. With much older hardwood floors, you may find screws and nails used to stop squeaks, possibly even stains on the hard-wood floors. In many cases these cannot be removed with general cleaning, and either replacement or refinishing becomes necessary.
What About Dust?
This depends largely on who is doing the work. Hawaii Hardwood Flooring cares about your indoor air quality so we have invested in dust extraction systems. Some companies may just have a bag attached to their sanding equipment, which is not a good way to keep airborne dust out of your house.
Our dust extraction systems help to minimize an enormous amount of dust and older finish materials that would have lingered in your home for months after the finisher leaves. This process is 95 percent to 98 percent dustless, which means clean air for you and your family to live in. When other companies just use a bag, you’re likely to incur extra costs, having to call in someone to clean your home or invest lots of time and money cleaning up after them. Dust can find its way anywhere in your home, and those with allergies and breathing problems should avoid this at all costs.
Hawaii Hardwood Flooring specializes in installation of all types of flooring and offers various services including sanding and refinishing, staircase fabrication, slab prep and leveling.
