Furthermore, sanding your floors makes them more durable, so with proper care, they can last hundreds of years.
Unlike carpets, wooden floors do not trap any allergens, dust, and dander, but sanding your floors helps prevent allergies further. The largest reason for this being that sanding your floors makes long-term maintenance easier, like sweeping and mopping. In addition to decreasing the allergens in your home, sanding and staining your floor increases your safety! Although it is nothing drastic, sanding and refinishing your floors reduces the likelihood of floors cracking, which encourages the formation of splinters.
Sanding evens out the surface of the floor so its level, closing up any spaces between planks, tightening loose nails, and removing wood splints. Sanding and staining your floors even makes it more resistant to traffic and furniture weight. A well-sanded floor also does a great job in reducing your chances of unwanted pests, like termites and other insects, from making their home in small crevices and holes.
